So it's 90 deg out. Today I noticed car running high around 2/3 up. Turn heat on while driving and it gets hotter. First time this has happened since august when it overheated from hitting a coyote. Fans turn on. Was fine til today.

Sticky thermostat?

That would be one of the first things I'd check, but don't start spending unneccesary money you know. So check your hoses, fans, thermostat, and sensors.

Fan Relay? I'd check to see if the fan possibly has a short by jump wiring it from the battery. Possible also that the temp sensor could be faulty. Get a OBD II scan tool that also shows data and see what it is registering at.

Not a relay, swapped with defrost relay.

Of course my scan tool cant give me current data so I can compare gauge temp and coolant temp.
