Re: help overheating!!!

Your radiator fans aren't coming on. Maybe fuse, maybe switch, maybe fans themselves.

If you keep driving it while it's buried in the red because it "drives fine" you're going to learn a hard lesson.

Re: help overheating!!!

you can also be.low on coolant. my car would be fine on the freeway and the temp would go to the moon when the rpm dropped.

Re: help overheating!!!

Your fans, check fuse, check for blockages, check for voltage at harness, replace fans, in that order. If one of those still don't fix it... There's something you forgot.
