Q: Q: Overheating

asked by on

My car is still overheating after I took my radiator to get it checked (it was good), I replace the cooling fan switch, the ECT, the thermostat, the water pump, the fans WILL only turn on with the a/c and the fan relay is good... head gaskets seem to be good since there is no water on oil or oil in water...what else can it be?

My car has 196000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
