Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

Cooling fan I had the cooling fan replaced a couple of years ago. It worked for a while but no longer goes on and I can feel by touching the hood that the car is hot. Should I be concerned and how expensive is that to fix. This is a 1996 Jetta and I don't have a lot of money.

    la solution esta muy bueno. Pero no hablo espanol. Solamente cuando soy una pequena nina. I understand that only when the car gets to be 90 degrees will the fan go on. That makes sense. Muchas gracias senor.

2000 Chrysler 300 M overheating every couple days

Some of those models the fans turn off at a set speed . (35 mph or so) If the radiator is not in perfect condition the car can over heat. Just not enough cooling ability in the radiator.

could be fuel pump,check for fuel see if fuel pump supplying fuel and you are getting spark.make sure ignition timing is correct and the idle speed setting correct check the under hood emissions information label.also check engine make sure engine not over heating check cooling fan clutch see if cooling fan clutch is okay by turning it by hand if engine is hot cooling fan should have resistance if engine is hot, if cooling fan feel loose no resistance the fan clutch is bad.

The cooling fan in my 2002 Volvo S60 appears to be stuck on. It's been running for about 45 minutes (although I've tried to restart the car a couple of times in that period, without it un-sticking the...

What you need to do is to disconnect the positive side of the battery. This will kill the power supply to the electronic fans until AAA can get to you.

The temperature gauge goes to the High and basically makes like a dinging sound, then it goes back down almost immediately. The car has not overheated but does make a gurgling sound when we shut the car...

before you think the thermostat is bad, first look in the fuse/relay box. lift the lid and look inside the lid for the correct location for the cooling fan fuse/relay. also if that is ok then unplug the cooling fan and use jumper wires to jump from the fan to the battery. if the fan runs then the relay maybe bad or the coolant temperature sensor may be going bad. rule of thumb if the car has run for awhile and got hot u can touch the upper radiator hose, if its hot then the water is circulating. if the upper hose feels cold then the thermostat is stuck open. replace the thermostat.

Mini Cooper convertible is overheating, fan contiues after stop

I had this exact same problem -- for about a year and a half! Replaced thermostat, replaced sensor twice, replaced overflow tank, replaced radiator cap, placed a grounding kit on the car in case the problem was electrical ... and was ABOUT to replace thermostat again and then the water pump when a new mechanic suggested we bleed air out of the cooling system. The heater core was PACKED with air, as was the upper hose valve area. Previous mechanic had been using a pressurized fill device to bleed the system and this had just been backing air into the heater core. There are two valves under the hood for bleeding air -- one on the heater core and one on the upper hose. It only takes a few minutes to fix this!

BMW overheating

many things could cause the overheating. broken water pump impeller, stuck thermostat, clogged radiator, inoperative cooling fan on the radiator.

i would first check to see if the cooling fan on the radiator is working. when it reaches operating temp (or surpasses it in your case), see if the fan attached to the radiator kicks on. if its not on, then either the fan has failed or the temp relay to kick on the fan has failed. also, make sure the connector is plugged in.

after its at operating temp, turn off the car and feel the radiator. if you feel cool spots, then it is clogged and needs replacing.

wile under the hood and car is off, feel the upper & lower radiator hoses. if one is hot and the other is cool, then either the water pump (actually the impeller on it) has failed and is not circulating coolant through the radiator. a common problem in this model.

but it could also be the thermostat. if failed, it would not allow coolant to flow & circulate.

hopefull one of the above items is the problem. good luck.

Cooling Fan, Cooling Sytem, AC; all connected?

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.
