    \'94 Blazer getting a little warm....help?

    I just bought this Blazer and while I was out and about last night, I noticed that the temp would get up around 240-250 degrees. That's when I was sitting at a light or sitting in park. It's night and day, not always occuring. I had the AC on too. Another thing, it didn't always get warm at a full stop in gear. I think it might be the clutch fan or low fluid level. I haven't had the chance to check the anti-freeze, but anyone who might have suggestions would help. It's not the end of the world, I just want to make sure I get it fixed. One more thing, occasionally I can smell warm coolant inside. There isn't any steam coming out of the engine either. I don't know?! haha

    Sounds like a leaky heater core, and thats maybe why you are running hot...coolant has leaked out somewhere, and the system is low/not building as much pressure as it should.

    Check your radiator cap to make sure its the right poundage and not worn.

    turn the defrost on warm and see if the windshield fogs up on the passenger side and gets slick...probably a heater core..

    for added cooling, and clearance enhancement, pull the inner fenders. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
