Now that sounds like a party. Heater going in 100+ temps. I bet you were just happy as can be!It really didn’t brick it. It was just amusing to think about. Especially since, if you look, I had to blast the heater, as the car was overheating as well.

Did you find out why it’s overheating?
my girlfriend in college my first freshman year had a car that overheated. Man there nothing worse than sitting in the summer heat with the heat on hoping that the car or you do not die....
So the two speed fan could be a couple things. Could just be a bad fan assembly or maybe a bad ccrm.
Either way, have you considered a good aftermarket fan? I’m not sure what you cooling system is, I’m only guessing it’s stock, but maybe a bigger radiator?
The water pump is “newish.” It was purchased and installed in 2008. As of today, it has a little over 28,000 miles on it. There is a slow coolant leak (car has plenty of coolant), but when Midas looked at it, they felt the leak was coming from the water pump. I don’t know where exactly. I just know that when I, personally, change out thermostats, sometimes there’s a leak and I have to reinstall.@MyLittlePony.
Bless your heart. I hope y'all get some cooler weather and right soon. Have you considered the water pump? If it is the original water pump and the impeller has worn/dissolved away, it could lose its ability to properly/efficiently circulate the coolant allowing the engine to transfer the heat then get it to the radiator to cool it back down. A hot day with the AC on could exacerbate the problem.
