Cooling system

the belt that touches the fan is the fan belt on all cars,
i guess you are asking about electric fans?
there are 2 on some cars, or even 3.
the front fan is the A/C.
the inside, is radiator for engine.
all 3 are needed if running AC.
the book on this covers all this in spades.

I have a 1991 MBZ 2.6 Liter. The front has two fans that are in front of the radiator...All of a sudden the fans are running, when the motor is running; Please tell me what the fans are for ,and why they...

The fans are radiator cooling fans. They are temperature controled so when you first start your engine in the morning they should not run - UNLESS you start it with your AC on. If you turn your AC on one of them should start operating and the other one will kick on when your engine starts getting hot.

Cooling Fan won't come on, coolant flows into overflow tank

there is a switch in the engine intake or cylinder head that controls the cooling fans. The switch is the one with only 1 green wire hooked to it. Turn the key to run, with the engine stopped pull this wire off and touch it to a ground( cylinder head, engine block) and the fan should start, if not look at the fuse, if it does you need to replace the switch.

I replaced my a/c belt on my 1999 intrepid and afterwards trying out the a/c function. I noticed that the fan blades aren't turning. Nothing electronic was touched and all fuses are good. Do you think...

Assuming that you are speaking of the radiator fans, they don't normally come on until the engine warms up. If the car was not overheating before the A/C belt belt was replaced, then the fans were working. Start the engine and feel the radiator where the upper engine radiator hose fits. When the thermostat opens, the radiator will suddenly get hot. The fans should come on shortly after that. Check the temperature sensor near where the upper hose comes off of the engine--there should be a wire attached to it. Does the temp gauge move normally?

Radiator fan dose not work

This does not sound like a theremostate prblem but rather like the heat censor. You can locate this either on the rediator or the engine block (a small round part with one connecting wire.). Just replace the censor and the problem should be solved.

Before you go to the censor just chek the fuse.(usely under the steering on the right.)

You need to check your electric fan under the radiator cowl. That pull the heat away from the ac radiator. Liberty's have two fans. One Mechanical and one electric.
