Question about 2006 Dodge Magnum

2 Answers

Why would the fan turn on immediately after starting the car? The engine could not be hot enough to trigger the thermostat, even if it is 96 degrees outside.

    Nope no a/c running. It's a 2005 Dodge Magnum that's given me probs from day one. It's also getting terrible mileage lately.

If the defroster is on it will run because the a/c will cycle. Also the sensor in the radiator could cause this by being bad or coolant is low. If coolant is low sensor detects air temp an will run fan all the tim.

Okay i have a '89 ford f150 4x4 standard single cab short wheel base with a 302 & i just replaced the thermostat 180 degrees & replaced the fan clutch because thermostat stuck & fan clutch was bad & it ran...


Its possible that you got a faulty thermostat that is actually sticking open and not allowing the water to actually heat up to temperature. Try checking the heater and see if you actually have heat. If not, I would start there and purchase another thermostat. It's the cheapest route and I have purchased bad ones myself.

Why would my 96' cadillac seville be overheating after i put a new radiator a new water pump a new thermostat and new fan motors in it


Someone would need to test the system and find out at what point the engine is overheating.
Is the thermostat not opening - is the coolant not flowing - or are the fans not coming on when the coolant reaches 220 degrees ?

1996 Jetta appears to overheat but no coolent loss


the temp sensor is the trigger for the fans!!
the thermostat may be in upside down??
check new thermostat in a pot of water & heat it up watch that it opens up when it heats up should be at aroun 96 degrees F
otherwise the radiator may need a good clean out or a recore!
there my be a blocked water gallery so engine may need a flush aswell

98 deville runs hot. i have already changed thermostat


You likely don't want to hear this but Northstar engine a common for head gasket failures. One good test that I use it to fill the coolant tank all the way to the top. Then start it up. If the coolant shoots out of the tank. The heads have a problem.
