The water pump may have gone bad in it after sitting for so long

It just started over heating today. I noticed that the fan was not kicking on at all. Is there a fuse I need to replace or what?


There is a relay for the fan to turn on check your owners manual as to where its located

2007 Suzuki Forenza ac/heater/defrost fan not working


the cab heater fan?, there can be 4 fans on some cars.
front condenser, 2 on rad, and 1 in cab heater box.
the cab fan? does it fail on high too?
it has a switch, (marked fan speed)
the switch is bad ,if low speed are dead. and high are good.
or wiring to it , the motor or the fuse.
even a cracked fuse, change the fan fuse to a new fuse.

Afraid you probably have engine issues. White smoke was water. clanking could have been apex seals. You need to have a compression test done.

Car was overheating replaced the thermostat now the heat isnt blowing hot and the car is over heating worse it's a mitsubishi galante


Could be that fan is not kicking on. check and make sure it is connected. could also be a vapor lock. some cars require bleeding water system and if so most bleeding screws are located around thermostat housing. Call local autozone and ask if your car requires bleeding water system....NOW the overheating could be from fan not kicking on and the best way to find out is to turn on defrost and if fan is working it will kick on automaticaly. If it does kick on then this shows that fan is working fine but this does not mean that fan is running properly.The fan is controlled by a heat sensor which kicks the fan on when motor reaches a curtain heat range. If this sensor is not working it will cause car to overheat.... Could be also that waterpump is bad.Not all waterpumps leak when they go bad.Sometimes the impeler on the waterpump which is what moves water through the system simply stops working and this would cuase it to overheat.......hope this info helps and good luck...Please rate my post and if you need more info fill free to contact me...Need to find where leak is coming from also for this is more than likely the problem........

Mitsubishi gto h-reg twin turbo..reverse and 4th transmission failed ,,other gears ok...any advice? thanks


Try the plastic guides for the gear selector failing that GTO are really bad for destroying gearboxes if it aint the clutch or clutch cylinder... To be honest i would say the box but go for the cheep option you may get lucky... good luck mine cost me 1300 to get repaired

Overheating & brake issues when turbos dumping


there should be a resevoir for the brakes that prevents that from happening... it's either not hooked up or leaking/failed. as for the fan.... locate the relay for the fan in the fuse panel engine compartment near the battery and replace it... if that doesn't work you need to do some troubleshooting ... starting with the fans actually working... to power to the sockets for the fans

None working fans, a/c


fans do not need to run until 235 degrees. A/C has to be done at a dealer

Overheating mitsubishi gto


Thermostat, problem perhaps, dirty radiator, look if one of the houses from the radiator are inflated with pressure, when hot, if You notice that, Your thermostat is gone the other way to see that is after the car is hot, the coolant suppose to circulate inside, has to move, perhaps YO need to let the air out of Your system after replacing the w/p, run the engine with radiator cap OFF till no more air bobbles comes out
