Hi, My Name is ***** ***** for posting your question to just answer. I am a ASE Certified Master Auto Technician with 20 years experience. I am confident we can resolve your problem together.Please remember I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle.

Can you send me the VIN?

Have you checked it for codes? How long at idle until it over heats?

Do you have access to a scanner?

The vin # ***** haven't had it checked for codes yet. It overheats in about 20 mins sitting still. No I don't have access to a scanner and I'm no mechanic. I can do the simple things.

CAn you stop at a parts store and have it checked for codes?

Has it had any recent repairs that you know of?

When it is running can you hear if the radiator fan is working?

It has been a couple of days since I have heard from you. Do you still need assistance? I have also noticed that I have not received a rating from you. If for some reason you question did not get answered please reply. I am only compensated for my time when you leave a positive rating. Your understanding is appreciated.
