Question about 1993 Saturn SC1
I just bought a 95 Saturn and notice that if I sit idle in traffice, the thing gets hot...I mean into the red...!! If Im moving, it goes back down..this would be fine and dandy if I didnt live in a rush-hour ridden desert metropolis(Phoenix)..
Ive read many articles..flush system, thermostat, fan sensor, engine bad...etc...Ive yet to find a resolution...
We changed the therm(cheap place to start)replaced the fluids, still doing the same thing....the oil is fine, no water in it and the coolant was the correct color. My deduction is, its a fan issue-hence its fine when air is hitting it and heating up when its not.
Now, Ive read this make and model has cooling issues, fan not kicking in until its in the red....etc.....my question is, has anyone found a resolution????
Please direct me..
PROBABLY HAVE A SPEED NOT WORKING ON FAN,ONCE IT GOES TO 230 PROBABLY GOES TO MAX SPEED. USUALLY IF ONE FAN IS ON CAR IT IS A VARIABLE SPEED. THE FAN WILL ALWAYS TURN ON IMMEDIATELY AND WONT TURN OFFWITH A/C ON SO SEE IF THAT WORKS. ALSO RADIATORS JUST DONT LAST IN PHOENIX. MAY HAVE A RAD THAT ISNT COOLING LIKEIT SHOULD. MAKE SURE FAN SHROUD NOT DAMAGED EITHER AND COOLANT IS 50/50

You can buy an aftermarket fan kit that will fix that problem. Factory fan is garbage.
Get an aftermarket fan kit and you should be good to go!
