Overheats at idle
Posted by Rob 94 cse (more from Rob 94 cse) on Tue, 19 Dec 2017 10:50:50
Hey guys, my 9000 gets very hot at idle. Needle almost to the top and auxiliary fan runs. If I push the pedal down a little, say 1500 rpm, the temp needle falls quickly. On the highway at speed it does not overheat. New thermostat and water pump made no difference. Is clogged radiator the likely problem? Can it be flushed or does it need to be replaced? Thanks.
