Overheating or just hot? Your temp sender sends signal to the computer that sends a signal to the fan relay that turns the fan on. You can hotwire the fan motor to the battery to see if it runs. if not that's the problem. Otherwise follow through by checking sensor and relay.

Electric fan


Check your thermostat. Your thermostat detects rising temperatureas in youy engine and acts as a switch to turn your cooling fan on when your engine gets hot.

Car is overheating, Fans wont turn on


First are you sure the fans are good. Unplug the fans and hook directly to the battery and see if they turn. One fan is for the engine and should come on when the car gets hot. The other generally comes on when the a/c system is on. If both fans work hooked directly to the battery they are good go to the cooling fan switch or temperature switch (same thing different name) and make sure it is good. This tells the fan to kick on when the car gets hot. The other one kicks on when a switch on the a/c system tells it to kick on. Check and make sure you are getting power to the fans. Get a test light and ground it to a good ground on the car and probe the plugins going to the fans and insure there is power coming to them when the car is running. If no power fuse is bad or the sending unit is bad.

Z28 95 running hot


Is the fan running or do you have an electric fan? If fan isnt running or never comes on no matter what you do it will never run much cooler. If fan is good then you could flush the radiator a couple of times and that will help but if fan isnt working it wont last long
