Over heating trouble shoot

Car is over heating when idle. Temp will go back down while driving. I have replaced the thermostat, coolant temperature switch, coolant temperature sensor and upper radiator hose. I need help with diagnosis. Any ideas.

Perhaps your fan isn't working.

Fan is my first thought as well. Could be the fan itself or the relay.

If it goes up relatively quickly when stopping, and drops quickly when you start moving again; it could just be that the coolant is low. Was coolant low when it was overheating? Did you fill and bleed the system correctly after the work you did? I have found that raising the front of car as much as possible when filling the radiator helps. Fill it to the top, open the bleed screw on the thermostat housing until you get a solid stream of coolant, close the bleed screw, then make sure the radiator is full again before putting the cap on.

Fan isn’t turning on sounds like. Jump the coolant temp connector together and see if the fan kicks on. That’ll rule out fan and relay at least.

The fans are not coming on properly, but they will come on after the vehicle have begun to overheat and the car is turned off.

Not a Tech issue.

Short of scripts, no. Unless you are constantly reinforcing your war fleet with replacements, the Khaak will eventually regain control of the sector.
