Thermostat has been changed, no leaks, engine overheats only in hot weather and boils out overfill. Mechanic claims it is a relay switch but cant find it. Any suggestions

No & the mechanic is saying that it is from a relay switch but he can't find where it is on the vehicle. Said he has looked online etc and now is talking about hot wiring it so the fan runs all the time.

The fans work from the ECT a high and low speed relays, and the PCM, the Power distribution center under the hood next to the air filter box contains the 2 relays, they are side by side on the left end. The ECT is on the thermostat housing.

No white smoke and the oil is fine. When the car overheats the temp. Gauge does not show it as hot and the car just quits running. Took back to mechanic shop and they have no clue what is wrong with it. They said everything they checked that could be causing it to overheat is fine.

Go to a radiator shop and ask for a pressure test, any leaks will be spotted!
