First make sure that the fans are turning on if it is check for circulation of water in the radiator you might have a clogged radiator or bad water pump if that's ok check thermostat make sure that it opens at the right temp some new ones come defected

SOURCE: Engine overheating on 300c, fan won't turn

Is it losing coolant? If yes posible weep hole on the water pumpAre the radiator fans switching on? The constantant control module (or similar nomenclature) may not be telling them to come on.
It's a dumb question, but...are you sure that when you replaced the T-stat you put it in right side up? Spring side toward the engine and you can see the triangular shaped arch before you put the cover on. Fixed that probably a dozen or more times. Those are the inexpensive do it your self fixes.If these don't work or apply. Check and see if the cooling system holds pressure. You can get a loaner at any chain autoparts store.or take your car to the shop and pay fifty or a hundred bucks for the diagnosis.

SOURCE: Overheating

If the fan has never come on there is definitely an issue there. There is a fuse for it in the power distribution center under the hood. If the fuse is ok you'll have to have a mechanic check it out.

first thing, you need to determine if the fan is bad-run power directly to it to see if it runs, a positive wire from the positive battery post to the positive lead on the fan connector. If it runs, you have a bad fuse, or relay (check again). If it doesn't, fan needs replacing, although a fan dying on a 4 year old car is a little out of the ordinary. Your fan SHOULD run when you turn on your Air Conditioner-if it doesn't, a little more evidence of a bad fan (possibly), but you still need to see if it will run if 'hotwired'.

Have you checked the fan? A bad fan either electric or manual with clutch will cause a heating problem.

Carefully raise the engine RPM above 2000 and observe the Radiator hoses for collapse. Have your cap checked for holding pressure.

The electric fans usually are 2 speed units. Check with Autozone or Oreillys for the relays which switch to high speed. Some rely on a second temp sensor; you may have changed the dash gauge temp switch and not the fan speed temp switch.

Then if no success you need to get the Fan clutch checked with a timing light. The fan clutch is designed to lock at higher temps. It is suppose to slip in cold weather. A mechanic would take a timing light with a RPM scale and compare the crankshaft RPM with the fan RPM to see if the fan clutch is bad.

Engine light comes on and says engine overheating


Could be three things: Hopefully the first...
1. radiator fan not blowing. (most likely)
2. Radiator clogged (not likely)
3. Head gasket blown... (very possible)

If #1, system cannot detect fan not blowing. It may be the fuse or the relay switch, disconnecetd wire at fan, or burned-out fan motor.
If #2, Flush radiator
If #3, you will see WHITE smoke out the tailpipe and excessive water drops.
Your new oil will have a "milky" look (check the oil dipstick). That is water.
When engine is COLD, remove radiator cap and start car. You will notice high-pressure "bubbles" squirt out of the radiator, even before the engine warms up.

I hope it is #1. and that this is helpful.

There is a cooling fan switch normally located near the thermostat housing or in the head near the thermostat housing. check this and see if it is defective.

The cooling fan circuit is composed of basically 3 components. The fan, fan relay, and a cooling fan switch. If you are sure the relay and fan are ok, it is probably the switch. It is located on the top of the engine block very near the upper radiator hose connector, close to the thermostat housing. A car parts store can tell you where it is located. NOTE: There is more than 1. If you have a temp. guage, there is a sender that operates the guage. Also, there is 1 that sends information to the computer. So, make sure you ask for the cooling fan switch when you talk to the parts store people.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, overheating as you described could be caused by:
  • too soft rubber upper/lower radiator hoses;
  • radiator fan clutch (is one is used) would need additional silica oil;
  • radiator fan relay switch;
  • radiator thermostatic switch for the fan.
A couple of ideas you may want to explore/consider:
  • wire the radiator fan directly to the IGN B+12;
  • remove the thermostat (not applicable in cold climate);
  • check water/coolant ratio (50/50);
  • some radiator fans will only work if and when the A/C or heater is engaged.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address your concern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate it at all. Cheers.

Radiator fan not working


Hi. Check the bottom of the radiator or on the side, as you also have a temperature-sending switch. The switch must reach a certain temperature before sending a signal on to the fan relay.

The switch just screws into the radiator.

If you would like to contact me again about this or other problems, feel free to do so.
