Question about 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse
I've had the fan replaced and the thermostat replaced. I have no smoke coming out of the exhaust and the car runs fine. It only gets about 2/3 hot and then the fan kicks in and cools it down but its a consistent problem any suggestions? I recently had the motor mounts and intake manifold gasket replaced and i have no engine codes or engine light on. Ive dumped soo much money into this for repairs that havent been needed. I just want to get the car fixed properly
Your car should have a High and low speed connector there. That would cause the problem you described, if the PCM sees the temp at about 195 the low speed fan should kick on, if that fan doesn't provide enough airflow it kicks on to high speed to cool quicker. in your case the low speed is non existent and the computer is simply waiting for the temp to raise to the point where it triggers the high speed relay.
