Question about 2002 Dodge Intrepid
The car is overheating. Stop and go traffic it goes faster, highway not as fast, but still does. Running the heater on full keeps the temp around half, but it is starting to get to warm for the heater to be on :)
I have not checked much, but I did notice that one of the fans did not come on. When I checked later, neither fan came on.
When do the fans come on? At a certain engine temp? Just want to make sure... what I am doing.
Any help appreciated.
CHECK YOUR SPEED FAN RELAY ONE SIDE IS FOR YOUR AIR CONDITIONING YOU HAVE HI AND LOW RELAYS

Start by changing your thermostat & flushing rad. It sounds like rad not cooling very well. Rad fan, (drivers side) should come on once temperature reaches normal operating temperature & thermostat opens, and coolant is returned to top of rad, for cooling. (Shortly after you see increased flow in rad, with cap off) The fan on passenger side should come on, only when dash controls, for A/C or defrost mode are on. It sounds like rad may be plugged & not cooling properly, but changing thermostat at same time, is a good idea.
