Yes - that is normal.
Do you ever see a spike in your temp gauge ?

Sensor for radiator fan 01 mitsubishi eclipse 4 cylinder


Assuming the cooling system is full of fluid, there is a coolant temp sensor that tells the computer what the engine temp is. When the engine reaches aprox 220 degrees the computer grounds the fan relay.
If you have tested the fans and you know they work, could be the sensor or the relay, or the computer.

What is the max. temp. for 2004 4x4 trailblazer


Depends.
A normal cooling system runs between 195 degrees when the thermostat opens, to 230 degrees when the cooling fan kicks on.
If you are experiencing air temps over 90 degrees, the cooling system could run at 210 or higher.
Idling and moving make a difference too.

I have a 99 grand cherokee limited 4.7 that overheats when on the hwy


Sounds perfect to me. The fan sound is normal for a clutch fan. The temps are just not too high at all. Remember, the system has two main points that make the temp okay: Coolant (in the right amount) and PRESSURE. Both seriously raise the boiling point.

At even higher temperatures, Eventually, you should hear the fan kick in, as loud as when cold..This REALLY moves air through the rad and should curtail any overheat.

My car temp gauge showed over heating at highway speed. Then upper rad hose blew. Pulled over and had car towed home. I have a Matco tools code reader. Computer doesn't show any codes. Why would that...


Using your tatco code reader, select current data (real-time data) and select engine coolant temp sensor (ECT). Run engine to operating temperature (A/C off). Monitor the temp reading - when the temp reaches approx 204 deg farenheit, the fans should kick on, after the temp drops to approx 198 deg farenheit, the fans should turn off. The fans are controled by the ECM (Engine Control Module). The ECM controls the cooling fan relays.

Sounds like you still have air in the system..Does the vehicle have any bleeder screws on the thermostat housing or around the waterpump area..If it does open them up until you get a good stream coming out

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Overheating


Three possible solutions:

1. Bad Thermostat

2. Fan Relay (most likely)

3. Bad Fan

When the GC reaches a temp of 180 Deg. F the fan relay sends a signal to the fan to turn on, once the temp lowers (around 155 Deg. F) the relay turns off the fan, and so the cycle continues. If the relay is bad there will be no signal to the fan to run. While you are driving your vehicle there is ambient air moving thru the radiator, cooling the engine, but once you encounter slow/heavy traffic or stop there is no air moving and the temp goes up, the fan will not kick in and the vehicle will overheat.

If the fan motor is not working the same will happen, but a more expensive fix, as the motor comes with the fan.

If the Thermostat is stuck in the open position, the water travels to fast in the engine and heat exchanging is not an efficient process, therefore the vehicle might overheat when stopped or in slow traffic.
