    Depends on outside temp, size of engine; how much Al used in construction. 

    A  4 banger with aluminum head and block or an air cooled engine cools much faster than a  454 cu inch  V8 with iron heads;  at same ambient temp..Give it an hour, to be safe. My Mazda 3 was still to hot to check coolant after 15 minutes.

    Depends on how hot it was, the mass of the engine and what the ambient temperature is. Duhh

    What is it that you want to do?

    Something?

    Anything?

    Take the radiator cap off?

    It will be significantly cooled in an hour.

    That depends on the ambient temperature! In 32 degree Fahrenheit temps 3 hours will cool down the motor.

    69 minutes, unless it is 42.0 degrees Fahrenheit or below outside

    An hour or so depending on the ambient temperature.
