RE: [DML] How long have you been stuck in a traffic jam?

My car is as you have described, good cooling system in good condition,
and I've been stuck in or weather and bad traffic.  Gererally I've been
fine.  There may have been an occasion where I chose to shut down the
AC, but in general its been OK.


If you do start to run hot, get off the freeway if you can, or pull over
and get out of lanes.  There was a point when my cooling system did have
a small problem and I thought I'd be ok.  Don't take chances if it gets
too hot.

My biggest fear when traveling is getting suck in a traffic jam and the 
vehicle overheating. How possible is this if the fans are working 
properly and the coolant is fresh, but it may be over an hour in 
crawling traffic? Will the constantly running fans do any electrical 
overload damage? Would lifting the rear window louver improve air flow?
