2000 BMW 528i running hot


is the cooling fan cutting in ? run the engine whilst stationary with the hood up , give it a little gas 2000revs and wait for the temp gauge to rise ,the cooling fan should be heard cutting in , and off again once cooled the engine temp down ,this may take 10-15 mins but you have to be sure the fan is cutting in or you may cook the engine

Cooling fan relay location


What year is the vehicle ? The cooling fan relays have nothing to do with the temp. gauge . GM had problems with the stepper motors inside the instrument cluster . Hooking up a professional scan tool to check what the PCM - engine computer is seeing from the engine temp sensor . You have duel cooling fans controlled by three relays . Checking to see what the actual engine temp. would be the first step , checking to see if the scan tool can control the cooling fans .
Look on youtube at videos on gm instrument cluster stepper motor problems

The fan wont work car does not get hot shut off


cooling fan works on a temp sensor in the engine block. it only turns on when the temp reaches a set limit and shuts off when it gets below a set limit.. cooling fan components are , fans, fan relay , and temp sensor . best way to test the fans would be to let the car set running and watch the temp till it goes up to 185 -195 deg. at this time the fans should turn on and the thermostat should open and cool the engine back down. also when ever the air conditioning is on so should the cooling fans be on. if the fans do not run the check all components till you find the broken one. fan relay and air conditioning relay are separate but work the same. and will interchange

2000 NISSAN 4X4 P/U A/C SYSTEM WILL BLOW COLD WHEN OUTSIDE AIR TEMP IS COOL, WHEN HOT OUTSIDE AIR BLOWS HOT.


your auxillary fan is not working. this fan is responsible for cooling the freon that is being circulated in your cooling system... check if there are any loose wires in front of the engine bay.

the auxillary fan is located right beside your radiator fan.

Hi, I have a 2008 chevy colbolt I'm having problems with my cooling fan fuse, the num 2 fuse keeps blowing out, seem like it gets really hot then blows out. and the cooling temp on the dash show the...


No that temperature is not too hot for your engine. The system is apperntly kicking in at 240 from what your saying and then it starts to cool itself down. One of your fans may be going bad if you keep blowing fuses.

Drive for about 15 mins and car get to a warm temp and then suddenly turns off with no hesitation missing or warning then will not start again for 30 mins when it has cooled down, temp doesnt get hot.


To start with check the coolant level in radiator...Your vehicle is equipped with a head temp sensor that is designed to shut motor down before it reaches temp. that will result in engine damage..If level is ok then i would look at the water pump at being your next culprit.In either case i would definetly check your temp. sending unit to make sure its operational due to the fact you state that vehicle doesnt get hot...Another thing you can check is to make sure that your cooling fan turns when car gets hot...If fan doesnt come (after you have made sure coolant temp sensor is operational) check fan relay located in power distribution box in engine compartment...

1995 cutlass supreme. There are two cooling fans.


it will come on but only when the engine is very hot and the first fan cant cool it down that fast,, its turned on by a difrent heat censor so the engine needs to be realy hot to set the second fan running and it may even then only run for 30 seconds till the engine temp drops off,,, as long as the car is running in the normal heat range dont worry about it,,, if its cooking way up in the red,,,,,now worry about it,,fast too,,

Cooling fan not working


The fans only run when the engine reaches approxminatly 235 degrees F. on the guage that is near the end of scale just before guage show "HOT" I don't think you have a problem, allot of folks out there don't know about this.
