What happens when you turn the cobalt AC on?
Turning the Cobalt AC on will turn on the rad fan, and keep the engine at around 200F. I am worried about long term damage to this aluminum engine and head.I have checked that all the air is bled out of the cooling system and the coolant mix is 50/50 .
What should the coolant temperature be in a Chevy Cobalt?
I am pretty sure that is the correct temperature that the fan should go on – between 215-220 As you start to drive temp should go no lower than 195 as thats where the thermostat should close to keep temp at that temperature. 55 people found this helpful.
Is it normal for a Chevy Cobalt to run at 194F?
Some websites say this is normal, others say their Cobalts run at 194f.The 221Fmay be normal for many, but I don’t think it is right to have to constantly depend on the cooling fan to keep the engine temperature in check. My previous 2001 Sunfire 2.2 auto ran at 194f and the rad fan seldom came on, maybe once a year.

When decelerating on the freeway to come to a virtual stop for traffic, when stopping at a stop light, when pulling out of the driveway, or at any point when the RPM’s fall quickly to idle speed I have an irratic idle.
