ENGINE TEMPERATURE

1995 Lexus ES 300 • 234 miles

My engine never runs hot, I just recently had my ac system recharged, it blows cold at a cold start mostly but after running for a while it blows like the fan is on instead of ac I noticed the other day my engine started running hot while the ac was on and it was blowing cold after I turned the ac off it went bk to normal temperature what could b making it do that?

When the ac kicks off see if the ac condensor fan is on and blowing out alot of air. Also check the radiator and condensor for debris in the fins like sand etc.

So sorry some how I didnt get a email alert saying you posted a response. Possibly your friends car gauge isnt reading correctly or she has a bad radiator cap not holding pressure. Does her radiator fan work?
