Stop and Go Traffic

2005 Corbalt stalls in stop and go traffic,

Example the car drives normal at 185-189 degrees then in stop and go it picks up 2 degrees until mid 220 and engine disables itself. Also Engine light stays on and T/C comes on.

GM your better then this? Right? Oh and the car is 45k miles and others have same probllem very dangerous.

Sounds like cooling fans aren't working check fuse, and relay. Coolant levels ?

Check the coolant level in the reservoir at the far right of the engine to make sure you are not running low. A line shows where coolant should be when cold.

Wouldn't doubt it if the fan fuse blew...it happens, no need to get all worked up over this.

Try turning the HVAC on...it will kick the fan on. If that doesn't work, well, then you've tracked down what's not working.

So to follow up they didn't even get to look at mine today. Maybe they will tomorrow. Either way this will be my first and last Chevy and last American made car. Other then the Ford no reason to even concider such Lemons.
