Customer Question

When I cut the AC on in my 2008 Acura Rl my car starts overheating
JA: Have you checked the coolant? Have you checked for a leak in the cooling system?
Customer: I have checked and there is no leak
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I put a new thermostat and recently I put a new AC condenser unit in that's really when it stared happening
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: That's it
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Acura Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. Please do something for me. Start the engine and open the hood. Turn the a/c on and look to see if the radiator cooling fans turn on when the a/c is switched on. Let me know what you find

Yes I'm here. Will the engine over heat if the a/c is not on?
