Overheating when air conditioner is on
My daughters car only seems to
overheat during the summer time
when the air conditioner is turned
on. I have checked all the fluids,
fuses, hoses, and connections
and can find nothing out of wack.
The thermostat is the cheapest start in diagnosing the problem. But I think it might be the water pump. When you turn on the AC, the compressor adds more drag in the drive belt that controls the water pump.
Is the radiator fan or fans coming on when A.C is turned on ? Also you may want the try cleaning out the radiator and condenser coil maybe be clogged with dirt and bugs causing little to no air flow across them. Just use a garden hose and nozzle to clean.
