Nope, coolant looks good. I think I have narrowed the problem down. It only occurs after a lot of driving, then I will stop at a convenience store, start up, and hit stop and go traffic again. I popped the hood last time and the secondary fan kicked in to save the day (way too late though, I was already at the end of the red zone temp wise). But the main fan was spinning so weakly I was able to stop it with my finger. So my fan clutch is bad, assuming it is not a magnetic fan clutch. Does anybody know if these cars have a normal liquid fan clutch or if it is magnetic?
... dont know which kind but if your cars hot and doesn't over heat at speed only stop and go and you can stop the fan with your hand at operating temp then the fan clutch is dead replace the plastic fan if it seems brittle and if you can afford it do your water pump to...
