I have a 1997 GA SE.. It has been running a little hotter than normal.. It runs hot when I first crank it and then after about 15 minutes of running if goes back to the normal temp. and then it will tend to run hot while idleing at a stop light or stop sign, and I have to add antifreeze about every week but i can see water on the ground, just a little around the therm. any ideas??:boogie:

lol, looks like the post was deleted, hahaha, oh well, what do you expect in the Newb forums.

Your problem, umm, it could be a stuck thermostat, otherwise cars usually run warmer when they are stopped because the air isnt going over the radiator. Does your radiator fan turn on when things get hot?
