In the last month or so, I' ve been hearing a weird whistling sound coming from my engine when I start it. Okay, fine, it' s an old car, so I didn' t think anything was really wrong.
Fast forward to yesterday, (7/7/16) and as I' m leaving work the temperature gauge starts to move toward H. I was so confused. I turned of the A/C; still overheating. Came to a stop, drove fast, drove slowly, and no matter what I do, it overheats!
Tonight on the way home, it actually went past the H, and I got nervous; I had to make a stop anyway, so I pulled over. It sat for 40 minutes until I came back out of the store; so I thought, well, maybe it' s had some time to cool off. NOPE. Within 5 minutes of driving, it start overheat again. Now my engine has this sound like it' s running hard, and a bit louder than it was before. When it happened yesterday, there was no steam, but tonight was pouring rain, so I couldn' t tell.
I called my mechanic yesterday from the road, and he said it may be the fan or the relay. But I can' t get to him until my day off, which is Thursday of next week. I' m starting to think I won' t be able to continue driving it until then!
