SOURCE: 1999 cadillac deville overheating

my husband did everything that everyone else did that had this overheating problem. It was so weird that my engine cooled at a light and heated up going down the road. I have a north star 4.6 engine and this is natorious for happening. my check engine light also came on and so I had a diagnostics done which told me my #1 injector wasn't firing , car ran like **** as well. After putting in a new water pump and plugs,ect. and realized injector was good a friend told him we could have a blown head gasket. So just to see if this was the problem I went to buy a bottle of glassbeads and the auto parts guy told us to purchase a bottle of BARS STOP LEAK BLOCK SEALER NOT RADIATOR BUT BLOCK SEALER $31.99 . He followed the directions and we waited 24 hrs. before driving it. What ever the problem was has stopped my car runs like brand new and I am loving it again. no over heating no injector problem, runs great.......I hope this helps. I know its probly a temperary fix but its a fix and now we know what the problem was. SASSY

SOURCE: 1989 cadillac seville!!! cooling fan fault ???

I have one of these cars that had that problem. I fixed mine with a new fan control module. The fan wires can be hooked up backwards to the module when you replace it too. I have a service manual on this car and can answer most questions as I have helped a lot of people with this year model. I will look at which fan should be pluged into where later. You should never straight wire a cooling fan as this will result in other problems because the engine will not come up to normal temperature resulting in poor fuel mileage. This could result in a exhaust converter and o2 sensor failure due to a rich fuel mixture. Reply and I will get back to you asap.

SOURCE: how do you fix a gm obd2 code p1660 output circuit

It's probably a bad connection to cooling fans, bad cooling fan, or relay in that circuit. Another spot to check is to clean backside of fuse block under hood, as they have been known to corrode up & cause similar problems.

03 Town & country cooling fans don't work even afler replacing relay. They'll work when relay plug is jumpered. Phil L


if they work when jumping the relay then all wiring from the relay to fans is good.have you checked all the fuses on the car(both under dash drivers side and under hood).if they work then its possible that the coolant sensor may not be sensing the coolant temp as hot as it is(showing the computer that it is at a lower temp)then it actually is.which would suggest a defective coolant temperature sensor and no this sensor does not always set a code.

How do you check a cooling fan that wont run on 2002 grand cherokee


ELECTRIC Cooling Fans are Controled By
1) Coolant temp Sensor
2) Cooling Fan RELAY
3) Power source TO the RELAY ( Fused )
UNPLUG the Cooling Fan PLUG @ FAN Itself
Use DIRECT CURRENT AT the FAN PLUG<< +POS & --NEG FROM BATTERY ONE BRIGHT COLORED WIRE at FAN PLUG is +POS. the Other is --Neg If the Fan COMES ON then your Problem IS BEFORE the FAN @ ONE of the 3 OTHER COMPONENTS ABOVE

Why isn,t my radiator fan kicking in when my fuses are fine


because your fan or relay or your temperature censor could be bad find the coolant temp sensor disconnect it and put a jumper wire on the connector to joint both wires and you should hear the relay click when the wires are crosed and if the fan is good it should come o n imediately after hooking up the jumper wire so if it does than replace the temp sensor

94 cutlass supreme is overheating,all fluids are fine. I did have someone tell me i need 3 motor mounts replaced. could this be an issue of the car overheating?


Over heating can be caused by a faulty thermostat and or weak water pump and dirty radiator and old antifreeze or the radiator fan now working when at idle but should not over heat when driving. Service the cooling system if it has never been serviced before. Replace the thermostat, buy some radiator flush to clean out the radiator and heater core. Just follow the instruction and replace the antifreeze and make sure it's a 50/50 mix water/antifreeze. If you not sure how to mix it 50/50 you can buy them 50/50 premixed. Water boils at 100'C so you need antifreeze mixed with it but antifreeze does not have the same heat transfer as water so you cannot run 100% antifreeze cause it does not transfer heat fast enough and you over heat. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, Be glad to help, once you service the cooling system and your still over heating, then we look at the water pump.
