This is normal. You are adding another 25% drag on the engine. Make sure you have fresh coolant, set to -20°.

Ok when I have my heat fan on my 2006 dodge charger 2.17 it dont run hot but when I turn it off it do our when I turn on the ac it run hot


If the engine is running hot you may be low on coolant. Check this first. If coolant level ok, the rad fan may not be working to cool the engine. If the AC is operational, when you turn it on, the radiator fan should come on telling you the fan motor is ok. You still may have an issue with a fan control related to temperature. This can be caused by a fan relay/wiring/temp sensor/ecm. Make sure the thermostat is functioning properly as well

you acn find a hot wire under the dash in the wire harness and find one that is only hot when the key is turned to on position but goes off whent he key is turned of and splice a wire into it run it to the hot wires on both head lightsd. you will only need to run one hot line to the head light as the light it self is already grounded.

2004 chevy aveo when i turn ac on it runs hot and when i turn ac off it cools down


The AC puts allot of heat load on the engine so of course it will run hotter but not overheat the engine, if that happens you may have a clogged radiator.

Cutlass supreme oldsmobile 1990 running hot


Check to see if your electric radiator fan is turning on. These cars are known for the temperature switch that turns on the fan to go bad. Also, a highly overlooked problem, make sure the fins on your radiator and condenser aren't blocked with debris. Shine a flashlight on the opposite side and look through. Good luck!
