     "but gets hot...."
     What do you mean by "hot"?
     How many bars are showing on the temp gauge?
     Is it puking coolant?
     How is the coolant level?
    Is the cooling fan kicking in?
    How long has this been going on?

    What do you mean by "won't start?" Does it turn over? First thing I'd check is the battery terminals to make sure they're both tight.

     Yeah hottest day in UK history. Exceeded 40 celcius (104F) in some parts got to 35 or so where I am.
     It's small beer to many parts in the US but we are not geared up for it. It's pretty unusual to have air con in a dwelling here.

     The number of times I've looked at mesh riding jackets and thought "what the f**k use is that to me."  :084:

     The increase in ambient temperature is nothing compared to the hike in energy prices. For the sake of a couple of sticky days I choose to sweat.  :821:
