Engine Cooling problem
1999 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
My Car is over heating. Currently the car can sit in one spot for hours and not over heat, when you start to drive the temp will go up and during this time the heat does not work, as I am driving some times the heat comes on and the temp goes down. I have changed the thermostat already. Events that led up to this were. I went into get my oil changed, after the oil change I drove the car for about a hour, it over heated.I then opened the hood to find a squirt bottle stuck in the left side fan. I then removed it from the fan and contacted the shop that changed my oil and brought the car up there. When I got there they promptly said that the bottle could not have caused any damg that would make the car over heat once the bottle had been removed. Also the mechanic switched 2 relays to the fans saying something about polarity. My question is could the bottle have caused the damg causing the car to now over heat, if so what damg is likely the cause. So far I am into the shop for a oil change and 120 for the thermostat, which is what they said was the cause.
Need help on this please
