Does them coolant censor make the car run hot or stop the fans from running. My car has being building up pressure and it doesn't release it until the car us completely over heating. I need to find out what could be causing the problem instead of just letting a mechanic take a guess before putting it on a machine and charging me an arm and a leg.
Do you
have the same problem?
