fan clutch. its 99% of the time the fan clutch.

if not the next logical thing is a worn out waterpump but thats less common as it has a service interval.

I went with one of those once. It was summer when I put it on, and that fan would NEVER disengage. I think Texas was just too hot.

This. Especially if it gets warmer while you're stopped and cools down once you get moving again.

there's no such thing as Australian, we just stole certain catch words and things other countries already do better than us and pretend its unique because we live in the southern hemisphere with strange creatures all around us.
