You can fix both of your problems when you fix your fan. check fuse under the dash, if thats good check the fan relay. it should be under the hood. you can buy parts at autozone or dealer. good luck

If it overheats while driving more than 25 miles an hour, the thermostat is bad. If it overheats while stuck in traffic only, either the fan motor or the temperature sensor/switch that controls the fan to operate is bad. This temperature sensor/switch is installed on the radiator. It screws into a threaded hole.

The radiator fan on my 2007 bmw 525i works fine while car is driving. Once i stop at a red light or in traffic the the fan stops working, ac blows hot air and mins later the car overheats. The car has a...


My guess is that your electric fan is NOT operating at all. Under normal conditions, just going down the highway, your cooling system will function just fine without a fan running. The air flow through the radiator is adequate to keep things cool. However, when you stop, you quickly get into an "overheat" situation. Actually, you should be able to hear your fan begin operating when your engine temperature starts climbing or your air conditioner requires the fan to do its thing. Note: If you've ever severely overheated your engine, your problems may be worse than just a fan not running, but you really do need to confirm whether your fan is operating correctly, or not. Another note: I had a vehicle with a tendency to overheat when stopped. It turned out to be a faulty (leaking) pressure cap on the cooling system.

My 1986 Toyota Corolla overheats in traffic it has a brand new radiator and a brand new battery, I changed the coolant and oil, and it still overheats??


Is the radiator fan operating full speed when it overheats? If so inspect your radiator hoses to see if one of them has collapsed and gone flat.

If the radiator fan is not operating then possibly a relay or fuse has blown in the supply, or your engine temperature sensor has failed.

If fan and hoses are OK it is probable your thermostat has failed in the closed position.

Hi my volvo XC 90 can overheat when stuck in traffic on a hot day, as soon as the car is moving the car cools down. I believe the fan is not activating but unsure as to what exactly controls the fan. Any...


There is a coolant temperature sensor that...well....senses the temperature of the coolant. :-)

When it reaches a certain temperature, it completes the electrical circuit to a fan relay, that, in turn, kicks on the electric fan.

It could be a bad coolant temperature sensor, fan relay, fan motor, or wiring between any of the above. It may take a visit to a qualified auto technician to trace down the exact problem.

I hope this helps!

will try to help. the fan you replaced, was it the air conditioner fan? if so. then you need to check your primary fan. the one that does come on when the engine reaches operating temperature. make sure by starting engine, let the motor run and the temperature guage reaches the normal operating temperature.if the main engine cooling fan does'nt come on, then you'll need to check the fuse box under the hood. relays are black square plug in's they are marked and will[fan relays] tick when you turn the key on] if main engine fan does not come on when engine overheats, #1 fuse blown #2 relay bad #3 main cooling engine fan bad. note; the air conditioning fan will come on with engine running,when air conditioniing is turned on. when the a/c is turned off, the a/c fan will not be turning. hope this helps and as always, thank you for choosing fixya.com

1998 Cadillac DeVille Overheats


The cooling fans will not come on until 225 degrees. Normal temp is around 199-215. Sitting still in traffic most will inch up around 220 or so. When you turn ac on it turns the fans on and may cool down engine, Check fan operation.

Overheating Jag???


Chances are you have an electric fan that is not coming on when the car isn't moving so you have no airflow through the radiator. Check for fan operation. If the fan is working fine, you may have a faulty water pump. Some Jags had water pumps with plastic impellers and they came loose inside. You will have to remove the pump to check this, but if the fan(s) are working this is a very good possibility.

Fan turns on intermittently


These have been plagued with faulty cooling fan relays. The relays are a little different than common relays in that they are pulse-width modulated. These cost 3-4 times as much as normal relays.

The relay is hard to get to. The factory manual actually recommends removing the bumper fascia. This can be accomplished much more simply by removing the passengers (right) headlight. I can provide more detail if you wish to repair the problem yourself.
