When this happens it is typically because your antifreeze and water mix (coolant) isn't correct. You want 50% antifreeze and 50% water to create the right coolant mix. The antifreeze will keep the car running cool while the water allows it to stay warm enough to provide heat in your vehicle.
When you are sitting still the water pump isn't moving at full speed so the coolant isn't flowing through the radiator as fast and heats up a little more. As well, you are not moving so the coolant running through the radiator isn't being cooled by any forced air like it is when you are driving.
Bottom line, you need to add water to your radiator. If it is full then I would suggest getting it flushed and put the correct 50/50 mix in the vehicle. Whoever filled your coolant obviously used 100% antifreeze.
thermostat probably damaged or stuck....and worse case scenario....your heater core is going out.
you need to replace your heater core
Most likely it is a belt on your car. Usually the squeeling is from a loose belt while idling and will also make noises while driving.
Check the electric fan to see if it is working.
Low coolant, failed thermostat, partially plugged heater core...............
Possibly defective thermostat. It sounds like it is opening up a bit with increased pressure caused by higher engine revs - when idling, the pressure decreases and the thermostat valve closes. Just a thought, anyway.
You have a bad blower resister..............
Does it have a miss? check plugs and wires. Also a possibility of a bad throttle position sensor.
Stalling while driving may be caused by a collapsing or kinked neoprene fuel line.
Only blows cold air with the a/c on while driving, your cooling fan or fan clutch is bad depending on the year, make and model.......... Only blows cold air with the heater on while driving, you will have a bad or broken internal a/c - heater control door.....
No, they do not.
I noticed while driving my Impala the temps stays at the normal operating temp but while sitting still the car runs near hot. I don't believe my fans are turning on when they should and if this is the case how do I address it?
Yo have a boken termostat or yours has ben removed
Low on coolant. Stuck open thermostat. Poor circulation (plugged heater core).
Need to change your thermastat i have done that but still over heats when driving
Most commonly a vibration while driving is from a broken belt in one of the tires, but if it's vibrating while sitting still, it's usually from loose motor mounts and/ or a higher than necessary rpm
If its a motor knock it will do that while sitting/reving engine not just driving. If it's only while driving try different things to check it out. Does it do it over bumps?(parking lot speed bumps are a good test track) Maybe only when cornering? Try pushing up & down on the truck while its sitting and see if it does it. Does it shake also?
No, not legally. It's Driving Under the Influence/Driving While Intoxicated, the same as if you're driving drunk.
to swat flies while sitting outside. sitting in a still chair attracted flies, but rocking swatted them away
While your car is running the engine is heating up. While your driving you have air being forced over the radiator cooling it off. When you are sitting still you don't have that air so your engine is heating up even more so the cooling fan comes on to help cool you engine off. Via cooling the radiator.
No, but your insurance company can still see the violation on your driving record and raise your rates at their discretion.
Poor circulation probably due to a restricted (plugged up) heater core.
About 185 or less while driving in normal conditions while sitting in traffic could range up to 220 210
Most likely an air pocket.While your'e driving or while the motor is running put your heater on high(hot air) and after a while the air pocket will be gone.I had the same problem after changing a rad hose and during a two hour road trip ran the heater and everything was ok afterwards
Running a red light while cars are still going.
