Does anyone think this could be a fualty thermostat getting stuck "open"???
There is an auxiliary fan in front of the radiator. You can see it through the grill. Could it have been on and blowing air through the radiator? I can't think of anything that could cause the radiator itself to blow air.
The fan is there to help with hot days, the a/c on, etc. As someone said, when you turn the engine off, there is nothing circulating to dissipate heat. So the fan might come on to help cool the silent engine.
