sounds like a electric cooling fan is not turning on. check power to the motor, by way of the fuse, relay, and wiring. if those are good with a schematic diagram you can identify the control wire (from the Engine Control Module) to the relay and verify all is good. not likely that the ECM is bad. good luck
