Re: Homer probably had ice&snow blocking the air flow
last week i was driving in the snow storm on the highway and after a while my headlights were worthless cause of all the snow buildup on the front. (hids=no heat) I pulled over on the shoulder to clean the headlights real quick and got stuck in some snow so i had to spin the tires for about 30-45 seconds (not constant) and i saw my temp start climbing past 110. At 114c the needle started moving, at 117c it was at the 3/4 line. I [Oops!] a brick and shut it off, i hit the rest button on the climate control and watched the temp drop sooo fast. Anyways i popped the hood and needless to say there was 0 airflow. Driving on the highway in snow clogs up all the air passages. The whole front of my car was wearing a mask of ice and snow. only the fogs lights were clear from their own heat. Headlight washer systems should of been standard on all cars with HIDS. I had to pull over every 10 mins to clean off the headlights.
