My engine is overheating when idling. Then, it is not accelerating and almost dying at first after coming to a stop. Once it finally gets going it can only drive about 40 to 50 mph. Every time I slow down or stop it nearly dies. It is very hard to get it to accelerate after a stop.
Anytime an engine is overheating it should not be driven until the problem is corrected or permanent damage WILL occur. This could be from being low on coolant(find and repair leak), stuck thermostat to a radiator cooling fan not working.
