I own I 2011 dodge avenger it's a good car but while in park or idle it gets hot it has no leak fans work everything. But when I hit my has pedal in park it goes down.
Smells normalDo you smell anything sweet, like syrup from the engine bay? If so, you could be leaking coolant. I'm no mechanic, but the temp going down after you give it some gas makes me think it could be a faulty reader, and your engine isn't actually getting that hot. Could be wrong though
