Question about 2001 Subaru Forester
When driving in city traffic, slowing down and/or stopping will often cause the cooling fan to come on (as expected) but I hear it go off again after about one second . This seems to me to be too short an interval to accomplish effective cooling and suggests that there is somethig amiss in the sensor/control sequence. The check engine MIL light does NOT light. The temperature gauge does NOT move from where it always stays after warmup. The fan DOES stay on longer, however, when I stop the car and let it idle until the fan turns on. (Runs for 1-2 minutes). This is either something new or something I haven't noticed in the 9 months that I've had this car. Could this be normal operation?
Thats sound normal..like i always say if it's not broke don't try to fix it..
