Sorry to say, but the fans shouldn't be on when you start your truck.It will cost you to find out why they are. Then it will cost to replace them, because they shut down because they are worn out.(Noise) Coils have absolutely nothing to do with the fans operation. Really Johnny???

    I haven't ran it to see if it gets hot, however it does get very very loud and it sounds like the engine is going to blow. I would just send it to a mechanic but the only one near me doesn't take my warranty anymore

I have a 2006 Cobalt when I start it something always sounds like a fan runs after the engine runs for about 30 seconds and whatever sounds like a fan running only stays on for about 10 seconds. Can you...


I suspect that it is the operation of a viscous fan hub. Check this by placing your finger on a blade and seeing if you can spin the fan with the engine stopped. It operates when the engine is started and pumps silicone fluid from one side to the other inside the hub and when it has done so the fan slows down in relation to engine speed . Hence the fan noise on starting and then after a short period the fan noise goes away. It will start to operate again when the engine temperature starts to rise when you are stopped at lights or idling for a while to draw air through the radiator to cool the coolant and when you start moving and air is passing through the radiator again it will slow down. If you experience engine overheating while idling have it replaced as it is not pulling enough air through the radiator to do the job

Start by checking to make sure that the a/c condensor and radiator is not full off debris. If the condensor and radiator were full of debris it will limit the air flow from the engine cooling fan which in tern will cause a high discharge pressure on the discharge on the a/c causing poor or no cooling at idle and could also cause vehicle to overheat. Check and make sure that the cooling fan as well as the condensor fan are coming on together when the a/c is turned on if equipped with 2 fans.

1996 olds aurora runs hot when idling or low speed normal at fast speed what could the problem be


If you have a viscous fan hub The one where the fan spins free on the water pump then the symptom you describe is a result of it not working any more. With the engine cold start the engine and run at around 2000rpm If the fan is working properly you will hear the air noise from the fan for a few seconds then the noise will dissapear as the fan slows down. When the engine is hot viscous fluid ( silicon ) is pumped from one side in the fan hub to the other creating drag which makes the fan spin and draw air through the radiator. If this is not happening then the fan is stalled by the load of trying to move air and as such the temp rises. As you move off the air flows through the radiator and the fan becomes useless until you stop again. Noemal fix is a new viscous hub. If you have electric fans check that they are working as planned

Had my thermostat radiator replaced 4 weeks ago, driving down the road ac running car started to overheat shut ac off it stopped anyone have this problem


Yes these do happen with the a/c on the condensor gathers heat,thats why the cooling fan is suppose to run when you have the a.c on.You solution is to inspect that the radiator fan goes to high speed,when the a/c iscommaned on.if it does not come on further inspection will be required of the operation of the radiator fan.

Bailey19@i hav a 1991 h-accord ex. I have two fans. once i turn the engine off. one of the fans starts running until i disconnect the battery cable.


It actually supposed to work like this. It should turn off in a couple of minutes. Give it a try. Wait for like 10 min to see if it will stop.

I have 2003 grand cherokee with 140000 miles that overheats at idle. as soon as i start moving again, the temp goes back to normal.


You have two fan's on your truck, 1 is a fan clutch runs with the drive belt, 2 elec fan motor, with test light and engine running at normal temp, just a little bit above 1/2 way on your temp gauge check voltage at elec. cooling fan harness if you have voltage at one of the two wire's and fan don't turn on, bad cooling fan motor, on the fan clutch after you check voltage at elec. fan motor turn engine off, with your hand spin drive belt fan if it spin's freely bad fan clutch, replace it.Also check cooling level.Hope this was very helpful

Car overheating when in idle. fluid level and


Your problem may be that your fan clutch has gone out. When the car is moving, it's cool, but when stopped it's idling, the engine starts 2 get hot which causes the temp to go up. The fan clutch spends the fan, which cools the engine while stopped. I had the same problem. Once you get your new one, you would probably want to get a new thermostat as well, but ask the mechanic first.

91 accord rpm going up and down while car idleing


It sounds like you have air in the cooling system, it doesn't take much air to get one of these engines to do this. Most people just fill these cars up with coolant and cap them off and that's what happens. The easiest way I found to remedy this is take the cap off the radiator when the car is cooled down, top the antifreeze up and put a drain pan under the radiator, because some will spill over, Then start the car and let it idle. You will probably notice it start to produce significant bubbles, just keep topping it off as the bubbles work there way out. Once the cooling fans come on the level will start dropping again. Slowly top off the radiator as the level drops and once the fans stop pop the radiator cap on and it should be fully bled out. I hope this helps.
