Question about 1995 Nissan Maxima
Back in December 2007, I was involved in a fender bender with my '95 Maxima which caused considerable damage to the front body. My front fender was uniformly pushed inwards a few inches. Under the hood caused a few migraines, as the front reinforcement bar [I'm asumming it to be part of the front chassis] was pushed inward, slightly bending the radiator, thereby causing the front hood latch mechanism to be bent [which causes the hood to close, but not lock]. Everything worked fine for about 4 months; performance was unaffected, cooling was also unaffected. However, around late April, I noticed that the AC had stopped working, and I have yet to replenish the R-134A refrigerant as needed. I have also noticed that my engine heats up much quicker than before; when before short trips less than a couple miles my engine temperature was below the middle of the gauge, short trips now make my engine temperature rise to the middle of the gauge. An added note would be that i noticed my cooling fans no longer engage. I'm asking if the failure of the engine cooling fans has any direct impact to engine cooling, and if so could that also factor a problem with the A/C?
Yes, your cooling fans need to run to cool the engine and to run the A/C. Those 2 fans are beeing used to cool of the engine and the A/C condensor at the same time. The fans actually slow down and speed up depending on how hot the car is running and on A/C beeing turned on and so on. If your fans are not rinnung, check the fuses and fusable links. They are marked on the cover of the fuse box. It sais "cooling fans" chek that. That's inside the car. Under the hood there is abother fuse box with fusable links. Check those also. There is a relay too, but check the fuses first. The relays are pretty booletproof. Do a quick check. Turn the A/C on and see if the fans are running. Let me know what you find.
