    My 94 camry radiator fan does not work. Car overheating. One hose broke, replaced it. Fan's work when I hot wire them. I try shortin pins 3&5 pin in the relay sockets but that did not start the fan. Does the relays have fuses? I could not find any in the fuse box that was labeled fan fuse.

It would seem that perhaps a good start would be to go to a carwash and power spray the radiator. you have to have good airflow over the coils and fins of the radiator. Bugs,dirt and road grime block airflow and this will cause the engine to get hotter because the radiator can't disapate the heat. this is a good starting point. if the problem is not corrected by doing this, then i suspect that your water pump is not circulating like it should and then needs replacement. please rate this solution......thanks

    IF WATER PUMP IS NOT CIRCULATING THEN IT WILL RUN HOT AT LOWER SPEEDS

Overheating


If the problem is overheating on the highway, your prrboem is the radiator. Your engine produces more heat as it works under a load. sitting at an idle, it doesn't have to work. It's my opinion that the center rows of the radiator core are stopped up or severely restricted. With it using a plastic and aluminum radiator, I would only go with a new one. Out on the highway, it doesn't need the fans to cool the engine off, the movement of the car forces enough air through the radiator to keep the engine cool. Either that, or check for a badly restricted a/c condensor which will inhibit the air flow to the radiator. My choice would be the radiator.Without seeing it I can only give you my best guess.

MY VAN IS OVERHEATING WHAT ARE THE STEPS FOR TROUBLESHOOTING


When does it overheat? At idle, or at highway speed? Is the coolant level where it should be? Overheating at idle or highway speed may be a faulty thermostat. If it overheats only at idle then it is likely a cooling fan fault. To determine if the fan is working start the engine and switch the A/C on, the fan should come on, if it does not, then you need to have the computer "scanned" to see if it can detect the reason for the fan not coming on. If the fan is switching on, then you need to have the water pump checked to see if in fact it is pumping coolant (this could also be the cause of overheating at highway speed) If you are overheating only at highway speed you may want to have the enigine checked for a blown head-gasket, or faulty radiator.

Our 2000 Camry 4 cylinder just overheated, all fluids seem to be fine what else could it be?


Could be a bad thermostat if it stays closed it will overheat quickly.A bad cooling fan will overheat the car at idle but not while driving.A bad radiator act the same as the thermostat may be better at higher speeds.A water pump will usually make noise.Bug parts or debris clogging the radiator will be self evident.Air in the cooling system will usually make the overheat come and go. A bad coolant sensor can tell you the car has overheated when it actually has not. Just some things to look at.

Engine overheats sometimes while driving or sitting still.ac works and so does condenser fan. Radiator fan does not work. 1st thing i tried was replacing radiator relay switch under hood next to battery....


Check voltage at fan motor, sounds like fan motor has had it, that's why it was spinning slow, kinds like a starter, won't work as fast when starting to go out or not work at all, if you have voltage, replace it.

1994 Toyota 4Runner Overheating


I had the same problem - my 95 4Runner would overheat in 4WD only, and coolant would bubble out and spill over.

The problem turned out to be with the rear heater tubes and the fan clutch - my mechanic bypassed the rear heater tubes and I have no more problems. Not exactly sure why this helped. To replace the rear heater tubes, it would've cost $325, but to bypass cost $75. Most people don't even really use the heat in the back seat.

The second part of the problem, and most important, was the fan clutch needed to be replaced. At low speeds, it wasn't kicking in when it should have been, only working at higher speeds. Once I replaced the fan clutch and the bypassed the rear heater tubes, all has been well.

Hope this helps!!

are your fans or fan working if not it will get hot. I assume you have electric fans or fan if so make sure when it starts to overheat the fan or fans come on if not check the fuse for the fans or relay, breaker, wiring itself.

Overheating- smaller fan is fried would this cause it to overheat


Is it an hour idling? If you are overheating going down the road, this is either a thermostat, or a plugged radiator. The fan will contribute to overheating sitting still.
