SOURCE: Is there a cooling fan fuse?

Hello, Yes there are fuses for cooling fans there also should be a relay or relay's, most vehicles locate them under the hood in the power distribution box, it sounds like there may be a problem with your cooling system that may need some troubleshooting, here's a list of things that might help,

  • Check the thermostat, if it's defective replace it.
  • Check the coolant in the reservoir tank, it should be at the proper full level.
  • Sometimes when you change a thermostat there's a possibility you could get air in your coolant lines from having the coolant system opened up, this could keep your coolant from circulating through your system, if so you would need to bleed the air out of the coolant system.
  • The water pump should be inspected for leaking coolant out of the weep hole's, when a water pump go'es bad it may leak coolant, which would mean the seals on the pump are bad, also listen for squeeling noise's coming from the pump when the car is started, if it squeels the bearings are bad, there is also a possibility the water pump fins are wore down from corrosion, there is no way to inspect this without removing the pump.
  • check the drive belt for wear and tension, a bad tensioner or a bad drivebelt could have an effect on the operation of the water pump.
  • check the pressure cap on the coolant reservoir tank for good pressure, when you remove the cap you should hear a hissing sound this means you have good pressure in your cooling system, check for corrosion or build up on the cap, clean the cap if nessary, also check the coolant in the reservoir tank, it should be clean, if not you might need to have the cooling system flushed.
  • check the large upper and lower radiator hose's for cracks, swelling, and proper coolant flow.
  • Check the operation of the cooling Fan, and circuit, cooling fans use relays and fuses, some vehicles use more than one cooling fan, if your vehicle has two cooling fans there should be two relays and two fuses one for each fan, first visually inspect the fuses if one or both are bad replace them, you can test the relay or relays for continuity by removing them and doing a proper continuity test according to your relays circuit diagram.
  • Check the coolant temperature sensor, most coolant temperature sensors are located directly in the thermostat housing, this sends information to your ecm which determines when to turn your cooling fan on and off, if it's defective replace it.
  • Inspect the radiator grill for any debris build up or damage.

SOURCE: My Ford Focus station wagon. When I have the heat

your damper doors are not closing in the box itself properly and also you need to check the flow rate trhough the heater core its highly possible the heater core is possibly clogged with dirt and debrise' sometimes you can just reverse the ehater hoses and drive the vehicle for a few hours or even days and that bach flushes the dirt out of the core then you will need to drian your radiator and refill with clean antifreeze

2000 Taurus SE station wagon fuel pump how do I know if it's working when I bleed the valve underneath the hood should it a constant spurt not a constant flow or just aspart went the ignition on


The PCM - engine computer will energize the fuel pump relay for two seconds with the key , When cranking the engine the PCM will only energize the fuel pump relay if a crankshaft position input is seen . An testing fuel pump pressure should be done with a fuel pump pressure gauge only .

I have a 1984 Toyota Carib Sprinter 4wd wagon (this is a Toyota Tercel in the States). I'm trying to replace the fuel filter, but don't know how to depressurize the fuel system on this vehicle.


Don't worry about it...as soon as you loosen the fuel filter clamp the pressure will go away. It's not that high. Just wrap a rag around the connection.
You can also pull the fuel pump fuze with the engine running...when engine stops the system is depressurized.
If it has a mechanical fuel pump (?) there will be very little pressure if any in the system.

Replaced fuel pump and fuel gauge stop working completely


If the gauge failed immediately after the pump repair it is a good assumption you had affected the fuel tank sending unit. It would appear the float is stuck @ 3/4 tank. From my vantage point I expect you'll need to get back in to the tank to correct.
I hope this may have helped,

Engine overheat


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand it would appear that the radiator fan is not working. In some versions, either the A/C or the heater must be turned on for the radiator fan to work. In some other incidents, the fan utilizes a clutch. Common design makes use of the inverse property of silica oil to serve as the clutch. Still others have a relay that actually does the switching on of the fan. Of course it would be to your advantage to likewise check the temperature sensor on the radiator.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Blowing but no heat!


If you haven't had the car long and don't know its history check that the thermostat hasn't been removed, or that it isn't stuck
Good luck

1996 buick roadmaster keeps overheating: already replaced the thermostat, water pump, heater core, heater control valve, hoses and anti-freeze


A shotgun approach to repairs can really rack up the bills.

If your symptoms are loss of water and you have replaced the thermostat, you more than likely have an issue with steam. And that steam more than often comes from a bad head gasket. Most head gasket gasket failures seem to be confined to the water side initially, but let it go on bigger damage will occur.
You can buy a litmus test strip to dunk in the coolant. It will indicate if there are exhaust residuals in the water and thus a gasket failure.

However it may just be something simple, given that you have just about replaced everything:

have you given the radiator a good hosing inside and out?
is the radiator fan running when it should be?
