2000 cougar running hot but fans are not kicking on


Check to see if the fans are connected to the wiring harness, if radiator was removed the shroud and fans had to be removed, are fan motors connected to wiring harness, are there any damaged wires at connectors, check the fans fuses at fuse box (Power Distribution Box) in the engine compartment (front right side)(push in on tab in front of box lift up then back to remove cover), Engine Cooling Fan Fuse, Yellow 60 amp, posistion #49, Check the Relays, Engine High Speed Cooling Fan, posistion #R8, Engine Cooling Fan, posistion #R9.

Power steering pump on my 2001 mini one stays on when the ignithion is turned off


It is not your ps pump that is staying on, it is the ps pump COOLING FAN located below the pump. On 2001-05 Minis, this fan is wired directly into the wiring of the main radiator cooling fan, which has two speeds, low and high. When the engine compartment temperature reaches a certain level, the main radiator fan is supposed to come on, and since the ps cooling fan is also wired into that, it is supposed to also come on. But, that low fan speed is achieved by routing power to a resistor, located at the top back of the radiator on passenger side, that cuts the power down. This resistor is highly prone to corrosion and failure. When that happens, neither the main radiator cooling fan nor the ps pump cooling fan can come on UNTIL the engine compartment temperature reaches an alarming level, which switches through a relay power directly to the fans, by-passing the resistor. By then both fans are attempting to bring the temperature back down to a safe level. Then, if you turn your engine off before the temperature reaches the lower threshold so that the fans are still running, the ps pump cooling fan will just keep right on running, as there will be no relay signal given to turn it off, and your battery will be drained.
To fix this, the resistor either needs to be replaced, or, the resistor can simply be removed and the contacts jumped. This last fix will mean that when the lower temperature threshold is reached, the main radiator cooling fan will come on at full speed, and the ps pump cooling fan will also come on. After my ps pump failed due to fan failure, I did this to my '03 Mini, and have run it for years this way. No more ps pump problems. You do need to make sure you keep the fan clear of debris and freely turning, or you could have bigger problems, like a fire, since the wires will get very hot sending power to the fan motor when the fan is bound up with the motor not turning. A blown fuse will often be the first indication of a fan bound up.

TOYOTA PREVIA OVER HEAT WHEN IDLE


Sounds like the radiator cooling fan isn't turning on, i would unplug the fan and run 2 jumper wires direct from the battery to the fan if the fan kicks on the fan is good, if it doesnt the fan needs to be replaced, if the fan checks out i would check the fan relay and make sure the relay is good, if the relay turns out to be ok then the coolant fan thermo switch is most likely the culprit for the fan not engaging when the engine reaches a certain temperature....

Cannot get cooling fans to turn on for radiator???


The cooling fans won't run until either the engine coolant temperature reaches about 218 degrees or the air conditioner/defroster are on. Once the engine reaches appx 218 degrees the fan will come on and run until the coolant temperature drops a few degrees and will then turn back off. If either the a/c or defrost are turned on then the cooling fan will begin to run to remove the heat from the a/c system and should stay on until either is turned off. If the engine is overheating in slow or stop and go traffic then the fan may not be working at all due to a bad fan motor or blown fuse.

Cooling fan continues to run after turning off ignition


For how long does the fan run after you remove the keys from the ignition?
It is cooling your system... but for how long. Too long will drain your battery. There is an sensor on the engine that activate the fans. If the fans are running more than 3min, change that sensor. Also check to see if you have enough antfreeze in the system. If not enough.. the cool fluid won't reach the sensor to signify that the system is cool.
Check fluid first, then the sensor

Change water pump


1 disconect neg.battery cable 2 drain the cooling system 3 remove air intake tube from filter housing to throttle body 4 remove top half of fan shroud 5 remove the serpentine belt 6 use a strap wrench to prevent the waterpump pulley from turning while turning the fan clutch in the counterclockwise direction. 7 remove fan and set aside 8 remove belt tensioner 9 remove hoses from water pump 10 remove 6 bolts, 3 on either side and remove the water pump. 11 remove the thermostat housing from the old pump and install on the new one. 12 re assemble in reverse order. make sure the mating surface of the engine block where the pump bolts on is clean and free of old gasket material before installing new pump and gaskets. When assembled fill cooling system, start engine and let idle untill thermostat opens and engine reaches operating temp.KEEP WATER LEVEL FULL. After a test drive recheck the coolant level, and you are done.

Cooling fan will not come on


If it has a temperature sender unit on the radiator you can test it to see if it's that which is causing the problem.
If it's a standard 2 wire plug on to the sender you just unplug it and quickly short the 2 wires in the plug together by inserting something like a paper clip. If the fan starts then you need a new sender unit. The sender it'self is only a switch that connects the 2 wires together when the correct temperature is reached. You may need to have the ignition on, but some fans continue after the engine is off and the key removed.

2000 Olds Alero. Cooling/Heating fan stopped


The blower is on the right hand side under the dash. You are right in thinking the blower resistor is the problem. The resistor is in the heater box behind the blower. Only 2 bolts hold it in but the back one can be a challenge to remove. The bolt is 5.5 mm.

Check for power and ground with a test light at the resistor connector. You should have power on the colored wires in the various switch positions. The black one is ground.
