My car keeps running hot while it is idle, and will not keep fluid in the radiator reservoir. I continue to fill it, but it will not allow me to put more than about a gallon of water/antifreeze in it at a time. And now, come to find out, the fan is not turning on. The fluid is not getting to the radiator, as it gets hot, it just boils and overflows out of the top of the radiator reservoir cap, and the fan doesn't turn on to cool the engine. Are these issues related? Is it perhaps the thermostat sticking, just not allowing the fluid to get into the radiator and therefore not turning the fan on? Or is the water pump and fan just broken? Water is not spraying out of the water pump, and there is no fluid under my car at any time. The water only disappears while I'm driving. Help! Thanks!
have the same problem?
