My car has 3 relays labeled rad fan 1, rad fan 2, and rad fan 3. When I took the 3 relays out and supplied 12v to them, rad fan 1 did not work. Do I just replace this or could it be something else?


When you apply power to rad fan 1 relay, is there power at the fan? If so, then indeed it's the fan, but until you check it, it could also be the wire...

My 99 Audi A4 resevoir is bubbling, had the water pump and timing replaced a month ago anything????


1. Possible air lock in the cooling system, does the internal fan blow hot air? You can blead the system through small bleeding points on the water hoses.

2. Head gasket gone, do the water pipes to the rad expand under pressure?

3. Faulty thermostat. Thermostat controls the amount of water directed to the rad.

4. Not enough anti freeze.

5. Rad cooling fan not starting when supposed to causing overheating. Does the tempture gauge in the dash read normal.
Let me know how it goes.

My 1999 mazda 626 6 cylinder overheats if traffic slows down for very long, stop for a train, etc. At other times the air coming out of the vents is very cold. I have added coolant several times.


Your radiator fan is probably failed. Pop open hood, watch temp rise, once past "normal " level teh fan should turn on. If not, you need to trouble shoot the rad fan. There should be heavy duty fuses and relays under the hood in an electrical distribution box. You should consult the owners manual or chart on the box lid. Of course the fan maybe bad itself. You can also try - turn on the AC, this will activate the 2nd (booster) fan, and should help prevent serious overheating but wont fix the underlying problem.
Good luck

I could not find code p1491 for my 1999 dodge grand caravan


P1491 Rad Fan Control Relay Circuit
This code indicates their is a fault with in the radiator cooling fan circuit. are their any other symptoms or just this code showing? it may be that it something electronic has failed, and the thermostatic fan will just run at full speed, instead of cutting in and out as required to regulate temperature. If fan is runing, their is no harm in driving vehicle.

LOSEING ANTIFREEZE FROM RESERVOIR


You have to make sure that the coolant fan is operating. If it does not come on at idle or in traffic then you will have an overheat problem. There are a few things that control the fan. Temperature sensor, cooling fan relay, and computer.It could also be the fan itself. Get 2-3 estimates for fixing the problem.

I just got a 1995 Crown Vic. I had the radator coolent flushed and now the heater blows cold air? It was working fine before this service. Can anyone help?


Take cap off rad when cool enough to do so. Start the car with cap off & heater turned on,(not defrost) and let it run for a while, as in wait for rad fan to come on 2 or 3 times. Add coolant/mix as needed while doing so. My guess is that you have an air lock in cooling/heating system that hasn't been bled out yet. Once in a while just rev engine a little, for about 30-second to 1 minute to increase flow through system, to help bleed & circulation. You should start to feel heat coming. Only put rad cap back on after rad fan has come on after 2nd or 3rd time. Check return bottle & fill it to mark as specified. If that doesn't do it, take it back to guy who flushed it, he should know what he did wrong.
