First place you want to look is the fan itself. hot wire it to the battery. If it runs, then check the relay. The system operates from the engine temp sensor that tells the computer to turn on the relay. sensor and wiring are all suspect 'till proven to be OK.

It appears that you have a viscous fan hub driving the fan or should I say failing to drive the fan. The fix is to replace it . If you have electric fans then there is a problem in the temp sensor system and the fans are not cutting in on temperature The problem you state is indicated by the fact that when driving there is sufficient air through the radiator to remove the heat from the radiator ..but when driving slow there is no air flow because the fan is not drawing air through the radiator and the temperature climbs until over heat is reached . Typical indicators of fan speed problem is overheating at stop sign/lights, slow heavy traffic driving, slow up hill driving, and rapid cool down as road speed is increased , the faster the speed the cooler the motor

I have a 2001 Chrysler concord Lxi 3.2 . I have had an over heating problem since I got the car so I have replaced the thermostat, water pump, cooling fans, radiator cap,radiator, and it still over heats....


You need to check For cooling fan operation. It may be a temp sensor problem (Fan relay signal) or a bad relay. A SIMPLE TEST would be to turn on the A/C, the cooling fan should run continuous in this position. The fan should run intermittently Relative to Coolant Temp. in all other positions. Check for voltage (14v ) at fan motor harness connector . If voltage is present at the fan motor connector then most likely a bad fan motor. The temp switch ( Fan Relay signal) is located in the thermostat housing or the radiator. This engine is prone to head gasket failure so do not overheat during testing procedures.

My engin fan nor my transmision fan will come on i have check and replaced all of my fuse ans still nothing what is the problem and can it be fixed without me having to cut off a arm and a leg.


Might be your fan switch is bad. It's what sends the electrical signal to the fan relay, to turn the fan on when the engine heats up.

The blower fan on the air/heat unit quit blowing


List of possibilities:
blower motor
resistors
relay
on/off switch.

This is not the item to attempt to fix by yourself if your a senior citizen. Because of the location of these items this is a back breaking job.
Unless the shop you go to attends to its customers while wearing ski masks take the vehicle to them . This is not a fixed income reaper. Good luck.

Is my car ok to drive with a broken fan or AC belt?


Open the hood and start the car with the a/c off. Do all the components running on the drive belt seem to be working ok?
Turn on the a/c and check to see if the symptoms repeat themselves...
If with the a/c off everything is ok, then you're probably fine to drive until you can get the a/c unit serviced.
If the symptoms are happening with the ac off, then it could be an idler pulley or a water pump or alternator, or powersteering.
Best bet is to open the hood and do a bit of inspection/investigation with motor running.
