Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE
My son's 2001 Pontiac Grand Am has constantly running cooling fans, even in this cold area of Michigan. As soon as the engine starts the fans come on and stay on until it is shut off. The A/C is not on. At just about the same time, the temperature gage quit working - stays buried at the left - as it would with a cold engine. Finally, the service engine soon light is lit up. Could it be as simple as the temperator sending unit? Thanks
There are 2 things that will cause this to happen. 1. The thermostat needs to be replaced and, 2. The coolant sensor can be bad. When I had this problem, I changed them both at the same time, she been just fine since then. Also, I had the check engine light on, and got the code from AutoZone (it's free!)
