2006 soltice cooling system. The temp on the car will go to 205 with the cars heater turned to hot, if you turn the heater temp to cold the engine heat display go down to 195. Also the radiator fan never turns on when the temp hits 205 it will turn on i. The car was over heating to around 216 temp also had a water leak at the water pump so I replaced the water pump thinking this would cure the problem. It did not. The car now heats up to 206 instead of 212. So I installed a new thermistat, that made no differance. The fan motor will not turn on to cool the motor unless you turn the defroster on then the mtor temp will come down but the fan will not shut off untill I shut the car off. Also if I turn the heater temp to hot for the car heater the engine temp will go up if you turn it to cold it brings the engin temp down?
have the same problem?
