Engine Cooling problem
2008 Mazda 3 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 50177 miles
I was driving on the highway and noticed that my AC started blowing hot air. I looked at the gauges and noticed that the engine was almost to the peak of the gauge runing hot. I immediatly turned the heat on and the temp came down to safe levels. So I have noticed that the temp goes up with the AC is on or if the car is in idle. If the car sits for a while and cools down the AC will work untill the engine runs hot. This happened while I was out of town on a sunday so I had to drive home with this problem. Thank goodness having the heat on and not going to fast kept the temp down to safe levels. What could this be?
