AC Heats Engine

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  AC Heats Engine


I have a Chrysler 98 Town and Country. I bought it quite recently and found out that when I turn on the AC, the car runs great for about 30 minutes... But after that point, the Gauge reading the Engine temperature indicates that the Engine is being heated up ! (and it happens quite fast too).

Can someone PLEASE help me with figuring how big a problem this is ??

The engine only heats up when the AC is turned on. Otherwise it works great.

Does the engine actualy overheat? Or does it just get a little hotter. The A/C actaully makes the engine work harder because you are engaging another device that runs off the crankshaft. If the engine runs a little hotter that may be normal but I'm not sure. If it is getting considerably hotter, there may be problem with the cooling system.
