If you mean the radiator cooling fan, your problem could be a relay. There is a fan in front of the radiator and one behind. There is a different relay for each. The owners manual should tell you where the relays are located.

Acura legend ac control untied stop working along with the fans any idea wat could it be


The rotary control switch on the dash controls the blower motor for the A/C. The A/C will not turn on unless the blower motor is functioning properly. The passenger-side radiator fan will not turn on until the A/C begins running. BUT the driver's side radiator fan should always work. Ergo, check the function of the blower motor (located underneath the dash behind the glove box). Usually when it goes bad, it's because of the blower motor RESISTOR (mounted inside the blower motor housing). When the resistor goes bad, the blower motor shorts out, causing it to fail. The switch rarely ever fails. The radiator fan relays are located next to & on both ends of the radiator. Check them too. In the link, the blower motor RESISTOR is #5.

Wait till the engine is cold, remove the radiator cap, start engine and look for coolant gushing out of radiator or a lot of bubbles, its possible you have a blown head gasket.

Car went over temp after about 30 minutes of driving. What could this be?


check for correct fluid level first of all in the radiator,, if the fluid level is fine, you may have a stuck thermostat,, or a fan relay thats not turning the fan on at the desired temp, , start the vehicle and look for a couple of things,, 1 remove the radiator cap prior to starting the motor, ( make sure before you do this that the motor has cooled down) let the motor run so it will warm up,, 2 things to look for,, fluid movement in the radiator once it heats up,, you can look into the radiator cap opening to see this happen, and 2 watch for the fan to come on, If you have ac ,,and a single motor,, leave the ac off, if you have 2 fans on the vehicle, turn the ac on , check to see if that fan started, if so turn that one off , if the fan comes on once heated enough,, the fans are ok, if you see movement in the fluids in the radiator, then the thermostat should be ok, They are cheap and easy to change, so if your not sure, Just replace that part

My car just today started overheating. My landlord says it's either a blown head gasket or a stuck thermostat? Can help? The water pump is okay...


Check and make sure coolant level is good, also check that elec. radiator fan motor is working, fan motor should come on right away with a/c on, if it don't more then likely bad radiator fan motor, if it comes on, then we know fan motor is good, turn a/c back off, fan motor should come on at about 220 deg. if it does after engine is warm, with engine off feel both upper and lower radiator hoses, careful, if thermostat is working right both will be hot, if only one is hot, replace thermostat, if fan motor did not come on with a/c off start checking coolant temp. sensor.Hope this was very helpful.

Spark plug sound from the radiator


That sound could be whats called air-bound, need to purge system, Fill radiator, run engine for about 4 minutes at idle, turn off let cool down for about 5 min then being careful recheck coolant in radiator, top off fluid then repeat, make sure overflow bottle is full, After about 3 times when radiator stays full run about 15 min and listen for radiator fan motor coming on

2003 durango won't start after driving for a while


it sounds like it could be your temperature button also know as a thermostat
in newer cars this tell the motor if it is OK to start
if the button thinks that the motor is going to be in danger of overheating when starting then it will not allow it to run
the button is not connected to the temperature gauge in your dash bored
this could mean that you may need your cooling system flushed out
very easy i do it once a month to my car


  1. while the motor is cold, on the top of the radiator there is a hose disconnect that not using the smallest amount for force not to break the radiator.
  2. have a running hose ready to go with it turned on and the radiator cap off
  3. start the car and leave it run
  4. quickly got the the radiator and place the hose in the top of the radiator
  5. this will flush out any dirt build up around the button and may help the problem
  6. TURN OFF THE CAR THEN TAKE THE HOSE OUT
  7. put the hose back on the radiator and make shaw it is tight with out damaging the radiator
  8. start the car and fill with coolent
  9. take for a short drive close to home to make shaw you have put the hose on properly
  10. go home and let car sit for about 2 hours
  11. check the radiator and fill if needed
WHEN YOU DO THIS MAKE SHAW YOU DON'T HAVE A WARM MOTOR OR YOU MAY RISK CRACKING THE HEAD OF YOUR MOTOR THIS IS VERY EXPENSIVE IT MUST BE COLD
ALSO DONT RUN THE CAR WITH NO WATER IN IT BUT ALSO IN SAYING THAT YOU MUST RUN THE CAR BEFORE PUTING THE HOSE IN THE TOP WHERE THE CAP GOES
WHEN DRIVING THE CAR FOR THE FIRST TIME DONT LET THE CAR OVER HEAT IF HOSE COMES OFF THATS WHY YOU NEED TO STAY CLOSE TO HOME

hope this helps
