1998 Acura 2.3 CL radiator fan too loud

I had some repair done on my Acura 2.3 CL - it was a broken fuel pump that was flooding too much gas into the engine. Now that that problem is fixed, I seem to have a new one. The radiator fan goes on after I stop after a drive, and is very very loud. Much louder than before. The engine is not overheating, as the gauge shows a little lower than the mid-point. Is this normal?

    Thanks guys, I know this used to happen before also, but now its much too loud. So loud that I could hear it from my balcony on the 2nd floor, when the car is parked below...(the parking is open btw).
    My friend with whom i have driven a lot of times before also mentioned the same thing about my car.
    The interesting thing is, that this is happening only after I got these repairs done to the fuel pump, and changed the fuel filters, spark plugs and distribution cap. Can it be that the sensor was NOT working properly before, and now it is? I have a friend who has the same car, so I should probably check with her also...
    By the way I did not drive fast at all, just a 35mph for about 5 miles...

    @co7196
    Thanks so much for putting so much thought into my problem. The thing is, I just have the car since about 4 months, so I do not know of the past history of the vehicle. As you say, since the car is not overheating, the engine is safe..but I am just concerned that the sound is really loud. The fan is rotating at really high rpm, and for an extended period of time.
    This time when it got repaired, the mechanic did disconnect all the sensors one by one and connect them back, to troubleshoot. Is it possible that one of them got put in wrong? I am not sure if that is something a diagnostic check would catch....but I know he did diagnostic checks also on the car. I will check the radiator cap also today, but i dont know how to set it for a certain pressure (like you mention)...
    Will surely let you know what the outcome is....

Every Honda/Acura that I've had has always done this.  For some reason the electric fan will kick on after you stop sometimes to try to cool the vehicle down.  I would say that it was happening before but you are now more sensitive to something being wrong so you are hearing it now.  And yes, it is loud, especially when it does it in your garage!  Everything should be good, especially if the gauge is showing that everything is cool where it should be.  Let me know if you have any more questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

The sensor is being sensitive. When you come to a stop,after high speed, the temp can spike and trip the sensor. Not unusual. If you have the ac on it will kick the fan into high speed as well. not unusual.

    Ok, :) I meant freeway speeds. Not implying anything.

    It is really hard to say being the engine should be more efficient after the work, but, a fan is a fan and the only thing that can change is its' speed or obstruction affecting the air flow. Please don't take this wrong. I've been a mechanic for 40 yrs and I've had customers that are very acute to noticing things they never gave thought before the vehicle was serviced. When it has happened before, what was found to be the problem? As long as the car isn't overheating and the fan is working I wouldn't want to steer you into expensive guessing. One thing you can have checked is your radiator cap. If it vents prematurely the pressure drop will allow the coolant temp to rise rapidly. For each lb. of pressure, the boiling point is raised 2 degrees.So you can see how a cap set to vent between 12 to 15 lbs.will affect the system if faulty.Think back on the resolution of the last incident. I'm sorry if I upset you. Please set me straight in the event something is discovered, but, I can't or don't have any idea why it would be louder. Good Luck. I do apologize for not having an answer for you. Good luck.

1997 Acura CL 2.3 flooding


How do you know it is flooding?

The only cause would be leaking injectors

Mail them away to one of the internet sites
for cleaning

No other type of cleaning will do a thing

They have to come out & be tested,cleaned
& flow tested & maybe a couple leakers replaced

Check fuel pressure & fuel trim first, as well as MAF
Data & check for cylinder contribution & misfires & see
if all monitors run with no issues & O2 Sensor Data is good

Sounds like it was flooded. Next time it happens. keep gas pedal all the way to the floor and hold until it fires. water in the gas, or just bad gas can do this. But if you pumped it at all while trying to start it if fuel injected can flood it. Let it sit and try again, or keep gas pedal to ground and hold until starts.

Poor Gas Mileage


its on the fire wall yes it will help some i wouldnt expect a drastic change in fuel economy because acura dosent have a replacement schedule for fuel filters like most car companies. id check your air filter and if your check engine light is on it will seriously kill your mpg. hope this helps
