You have a faulty temp sensor in your radiator, if you can see the rad look around the outside of the rad and look for a round sensor with two wires coming from it, it looks like a brass hexegon nut, Got to land rover and ask for a radiator temp switch for the fan. they are easy to change if you have a wrench to fit it, you will lose a little fluid so be sure to top up your coolant after fitting. Hope this helps simfea@telus.net

Usually electric fans turn off after few minutes to bring the coolant temp below the sensor settings. If both fans run all the time could be caused by either the A/C switch is in the on position or the A/C high pressure switch is bad.

Acura rsx won't shift when it's on, only when off it shifts


This may be a clutch problem or a cluthch slave, what is happening is the transmission is not completely stopped spinning, so as you try to go into gear the clutch is not disengaged completely. this can be due to a bad slave or master.

The fluid for the clutch master, make sure its full. if low then you may have a leak. if low fill and pump pedal a few times to see if that helps.

If clutch master is low or full go to trany and locate the cltuch release fork on the transmission at the end you will see clutch slave, make sure there are no leaks. have someone push clutch pedal as you watch the fork move. make sure it move the distance. if its leaking then its bad.


The last thing would be the clutch pressure plate or disc, this is hard to see without removing transmission, If something broke away from cluch plate and is jammed against plate this will keep traany spinnig, but it would also be hard to get into first.

If you can start car in neutral and put into 1st gear without a problem then thats confusing, but if it is hard to go into first also then its in the clutch system. i am guessing you are in first with clutch down when starting and then its hard to get into other gears. good day.

How do you use the traction control system. should the dashboard light be on or off


how the tcs works is when active light on dash will be on you will only feel it working tcs uses wheel speed sensors that when your tire slips and spins faster than other wheel like spinnig out on on ice snow gravel the tcs unit will use a controlled misfire that will **** or jolt giving traction and will stay engaged until spinnig stops or you let off gas basicaly it uses the engine to **** not allowing wheels to spin out to get a feel turn on tcs find a gravel or snowy road accelerate trying to make the car slip you will feel car start to **** it works well try it so you get a feel incase you trigger tcs and catches you off guard

hope this helped

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. The vehicle has recently started over heating. When I start to drive the car in the morning, the engine temperature reads cold until I turn the heater on. Once the...


If running the heater keeps the engine from overheating, this is usually a sign of a fan failure. I don't want to dismiss the coolant on the ground, but if your engine is getting hot enough, it's going to boil the coolant and it will come out the overflow tube on the expansion tank.

Testing the fans is different depending on the engine you have. Electric fans are attached to the radiator and are seperate from the engine. A clutch fan is a fan that is driven off a shaft directly on your engine. If you have electric fans, turn on your AC with the engine running. The fans should spin up. If you have a clutch fan, it should spin all the time.

The easiest thing to do however, is replace your thermostat. If that sticks closed, it won't allow coolant to flow. Again, this is different depending on your engine, but if you look at your radiator, and follow the top hose back to the engine, this is were your thermostat should be.

And lastly, you can check your water pump, but this is a it subjective. You'll have to remove the serpentine belt to do this. Grab the pulley on the pump and wiggle, you shouldn't have any play. Try to turn it. It should not turn *too* easily.

Running the A/c in city traffic can cause this. You may nave a fan out. Start the car with out the A/c on, open the hood check the rad. fan, then turn on the A/c and recheck the fan - it should be on now. If not, we have a problem with the fan circuit. Check that and repost.

I have a 98 chevy cavalier and when i turn it on my engine fan spins but then stops.. but i have seen other car when they started the engine their fan keep up spining. why does my car does that?


is your car overheating???the fan isnt suppose to run when started(unless engine is hot), it may turn on then shut off. See if it runs when the vehicle gets hot and the A/C is on. Those engines with fans that move all the the time are belt driven. This is why they spin continually.

99 Explorer 4.0 Won't start... the last few days that it did run, I would have to turn it over a few times and usually the 3rd time it would start. Just replaced the battery, but guage still reads low....


Check the connections to the starter, 90 percent of the time when testing batteries and starters here in WI the issue it the wires at the starter. Don't just look at them, either. Pull the big one off and clean it really well, and the small one if it looks bad. Also check the ground wire where it bolts to the motor from the battery, if the latter does not fix it. You have a bad connection, the old battery was probably still good-but don't take that as saying to take the new one back, you are better safe than sorry, I would keep the new one anyway-and the old for a spare.

Renault megane scenic 1.6 RT warning light


this exact problem on a megane coupe is caused by a small air pipe that connects to a 2 inch wide black box that is located under the bonnet near the windscreen on the passangers side. the zigzag light indicates an electrical fault (in this case lack of compression and will affect your revs) if you find this pipe and it has snapped off. the reason for this may be that your engien is lose and moves. grab the engien with 2 hands and see if you can wobble it with allot of play. if so your engien mountings need replaceing. you may also experiance juddering in low gears

cooling fans. either electric or thermo clutch(heat tightens up a coil spring to make it spin faster as needed) If it has electric fans then they may be going bad and not spinnig fast enough. if its the mechanical type with the thermo clutch, its not engaging strongly enough. much like and old stick shift car with a bad clutch.

Radiator fan motor on my 1998 cavalier


Normally, the fan will not spin at the same RPM as the engine. This is the purpose of the fan clutch. On the fan clutch sits a little thermal spring that engages the clutch to spin the fan at the same rpm as the motor when the motor gets hotter than normal.

Being able to hold onto the fan while the motor is running, is normal (not recommended, but normal).
You can test the clutch by heating it and then trying to spin the fan while the motor is off. If it is still easy to spin, you could have a bad fan clutch, or you didn't heat it enough. It is kind of a crappy way to test.

You not having cooling issues leads me to guess that your clutch is alright. But I don't know what type of climate you live it, nor do I know in what condition your clutch is.

They can actually be difficult to replace. Easy theory, but actually doing the job may be harder than you think. They are threaded onto the water pump pulley (just one big threaded stud). To remove you need to either be really crafty, or you need a wrench designed to hold the pulley in place while you loosen the clutch and fan assembly. No, the pulley drive belt is not enough to keep the pulley from turning (it will either slip or you will turn the crank of the motor).

Usually they are on there pretty tight! When I replaced my water pump on my truck, I could not remove the fand and clutch from the water pump while in the truck (I had to remove my radiator shroud and remove it all in one piece) then I had to weld the old water pump impeller to the casting to keep it from spinning then broke it loose with a 2ft breaker bar! Seriously.

Once you get the old one off, remove the fan and bolt it to your new clutch unit. Then thread it on the water pump.
