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



Here in Dallas in 90 degree weather and in a traffic jam we do turn off the
engines and have a tail gate party.:-)). Really we do turn off the engine
and make do. Yes the engine can get hot with the AC on and you may have to
take the idle up to 1200 with a stock Motorola alternator to over come the
current load on ac with the radiator fans . They draw the most current and
will run the battery down and the AC will cause the engine to over heat.

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?
