No problems all winter- fall but soon as it gets hot enough for AC it’s a problem and I start overheating about 15 mins after AC is turned on. Shut the AC off and temp drops back to normal. Plz help.

Does the engine run cooler with the heat turned on? Pretty sure sign of a clogged up cooling system. The AC puts a bigger load on the engine, and it brings hot air across your radiator instead of ambient air. When the engine is warmed up, put your hand on the radiator. (Or use an IR thermometer) If it's hot at the top and cooler at the bottom, time for a new radiator. At that point, go ahead and do everything -- water pump, hoses, idler, serpentine belt, thermostat, chemical flush, fresh coolant.

i had the same prob on my 88 and it had a new rad at the time it was the ac was out of wack but it would fog the windows up it got so cold but just like yours if it was hot outside (i live in south texas) it would get hot and that was a 4 core alum rad 160 therm and new fan and i thought it was the fan so i bought a better one and it still did it and come to find out the ac system was contaminated so if you want to see if it is that then find you a therm likeradioactive said then turn on the ac while it's parked in sun and find out how hot that a/c core is getting the only reason i'm giving this adv to ya is so you don't replace all the cooling system parts and still have the problem that would s__k and it don't cost nothing to check that first and you could probably find a local auto parts that has a therm you could use in there parking lot if it does end up being the a/c core getting to hot then find you one of the a/c guys in here to tell ya wat to do cause it could be a number of probs causing it good look i hope this helps ya

Holy shit that's the longest run on sentence in the history of run on sentences. Imagine if complete words and correct spelling were used, it'd be a run on novella. I do like how s__k is censored though.

Seriously though, it wouldnt hurt to buy a friggin perpliod. Then we dont have to decipher WTF yer talking about. That's wut they make them for. 55, check yer electric fan. Had the same problem and that was the culprit.

I gave up on correcting spelling and grammar a long time ago. There's just too much to fix and not enough time. Plus, the worst offenders often don't give a shit and will never get better.

C'mon man! A Perpliod (aka Purploid) is a purple reptilian dinosaur like creature that lived during the Jurassic Period. For real. Not making it up, danXdress.0pp
No, no silly! Me just jokey! Ha, ha, I make joke! Seriously though, I was trying to text the word "period", but the keys were going apeshit during my text and when I was almost done, they deleted somehow, about 5 times over along with the spastic keyboard. I couldnt finish a reply without it disappearing when i was almost done, and I can be long winded. I was lucky to get that one out. It only happened on this site. I'm thinking the SSM was deleting my texts like they did before. The problem has resolved itself, obviously. Without the intervention of the SSModerator!

Looks to me like yer grammar, spelling AND punctuation are just fine. Dont give up on it. It looks like u actually have some intelligence instead of 90% of the illiterates out there. When u cant spell or use a friggin period, no matter how intelligent u may be, u (not you) look like an idiot!
