    2014 SRX runs very hot at idle

    Been doing this lately, temp gauge just about peaks at idle, AC stops working. Happened about a year ago and now it is happening more often. Turn the AC off and lower windows and it cools off to a safer temperature. No message shows up. Anyone else have a similar problem

    Thanks
    Buster

    Are the engine cooling fans working when the engine is hot?

    Coolant level good?

    And does the warning light come on when the gauge reads hot?

    When I turn the engine off, the cooling fan continues so I assume they are working.

    coolant level is ok.

    good question. No, I have not seen the warning light.

    Thanks for responding.

    I'm not sure of your conditions but a number of situations may cause the engine to run hot such as extended periods of stop and go traffic. This may be normal.

    If your temp warning light has not illuminated then you likely have not exceeded max allowable temperatures.

    If your AC quits working by itself at any time I would have that checked out.

    The connector for my engine cooling fans had melted a little due to the current from the speed resistors. It would sometimes stop working and the engine would over heat. I bought a new connector for the engine bay wiring harness and that fixed the problem for me.

    I'm sure it didn't fix the head gasket issues you are likely to have from the engine overheating.
