Just bought a 2009 Aveo that seems to be running hot.
The temp gauge reads at the half way mark after driving 15 miles from a cold start.
I noticed the colloant level was down about a half gallon. I filled it to the proper level and still get the same temp reading.
I never see the fan run.
Thanks for your help.
Should the fan run for a short period after turning the engine off?
What is the best way to test the fan to see that it operates properly?
Can I disconnect the fan and hook it directly to a car battery to see if it works?
If I connect it to the battery with the wrong polarity, will it damage the fan?
