Default car temp goes hi wen AC on?

driving down I-95 with ac on as ususal and tried to floor it to pass a car , then when I got off 95 it was getting hot fast... I pulled over, pop the hood and everything seemed normal. Started up temp went down but as soon as I turned ac on it would slowly get hot.... WHY?

Sounds like the fan isn't working when the AC is on. You should here the fan running as soon as you turn the AC on.

Lets try to get this straight.

On your first post your said you "tried to floor it" to pass a car. What happened, didn't the PT drop into passing gear? What do your mean by "tried' ?

Then you said, "Fan came right away then we turned off ac". Is that what you meant to say OR that the fan came ON right away when you turned ON the A/C?

Which is how it's supposed to work: A/C ON, Fan ON.

okay when we were on I-95 my son was driving and we had ac on and he tried to pass a car and i heard the car rev up hard, i looked at my son and he said he had the pedal to the floor because it would not go, then it got hot, we pulled over, made it home and then you told me to see if fan came on when ac was turned on and it did, so im wondering now if it could be a temp sensor..... also the fan is loose and its been that way for awhile, so im guessing the fan could be not operating properly or a temp sensor is not working. But I know the water pump is good, and there is no clog in the radiator, and thermostat should be good, but we may need to change the radiator cap.

Yes, as CREWZIN said seems that your fan is working. Is the overfloe tank at the correct level. You must eliminate the possabilites from here. Assuming that the fan is working at full capacity.
