I have recently gotten a radiator flush for my car, but my car still is overheating when it is idle. I was wondering what I should do.
Do you
have the same problem?

Good afternoon,

Does the cooling fan work at idle when it gets hot? If it does not, it will overheat.

I am not sure. What would I have to do to see if it works?

You would hear the fan come on when it gets hot. It will make noise when it starts working.
