How to change the fan.i own a 2006 town an country chrysler van and the air conditioner works when the car is going but once I stop the tempature guage goes up to hot and the van will over heat causin


It should be a fairly simple R&R since the fan and shroud is bolted to the radiator support. Usually you take it out as an assembly.
If you haven't done so already, be sure and check the fuse and relay before condemning the cooling fan motor.

Runs hot


Try the cheapest, and most overlooked first, the radiator cap, theey do wear our where they wil not hold the proper pressure.
If after installing a new cap it still overheats, have the vacuum checked, a low steady reading would indicate a leaking intake manifold, another possible cause of overheating as the vehicle is running too lean.
Another, but not likely item to check is the temperature sending unit, it just might be giving the wrong reading.

Chrysler 2006 pt cruiser overheating


Check some of the simple things like coolant level and leaks under the car or under the hood. Then have your car running and observe the front Electric fan by your radiator.

When the engine starts to get hot, this Electric fan should turn on. You may also be able to have the fan turn on when you set your A/C to work. Different makers prioritize different controls and some offer a 2 speed fan design to help when things are really hot.

The Electric fan is suppose to be turned on by a temperature sensor. The sensor will activate a Relay which provides power to the Electric radiator fan. You can obtain a wiring diagram and a fusebox layout drawing by going to Autozone.com and registering your vehicle for free.

Once you have these diagrams you will know what size fuse the Electric fan uses and where it is in the Fusebox. You can take off the radiator Electric fan for testing or just jump some power to it to find out if it is bad.

For the rest of the controls like the Relay, you can use a Voltmeter to trace where the power stops, then fix that part. Remember that for testing the Relay, the Ignition should be on.

The next reason for overheating is a stuck thermostat in the water system. You would need to follow the big hose coming off the top of the radiator and running to the engine. The thermostat should be contained in this housing.

Finally, it is not impossible for the Radiator to go bad and clog up. But manufacturers using aluminum engine parts often have trouble free aluminum radiators.

I have a 1997 Intrepid that keeps overheating. I took it to a shop, and they say that the radiator fans have shorted out fuses. I was just wondering if this was a problem that I could fix on my own,...


Ur problem is easy to solve and must be done quickly to avoid damage to the head or other engine components.
1. Ur two fans must be working and,
2. the thermostat which triggers the fans must be in working order as wel.
3. The two fans have fuses in the fuse comp box, they must not be broken, if so, replace them.
4. Make sure there is optimum coolant in the radiator and that it is clean. Rusty wall and dirt reduces the efficiency of the radiator: u can use radiator flush to get rid of the dirt.
This should answer the heating problem, if it doesnt u may need to have the head

I HAVE A 2003 CHRYSLER PT CRUISER. RUNS HOT ! REPLACED WATER PUMP, THERMOSTAT, ALL HOSES AND RADIATOR.BEEN TO TWO GARAGES, WHAT ARE WE MISSING


A lot of people overlook the simple overflow tank cap. If this cap loses the psi pressure it requires to hold then it can make the engine run hot because it's losing pressure. Think about it like this, if you have ever had a radiator to leak, the water level could be good, but the temp gauge shows it overheats. This is because the system isn't holding the pressure. The cap cost about $7. I'm not saying this will fix the problem but it is overlooked and fixes the problem on a lot of over heating cars.

Radiator Fan Stays On


A simple test would involve disconnecting the fan switch while the fan is on. If the fan then stops the switch has failed. If the fan continues to run remove the relay , if the fan then stops the relay has failed.
Various inputs/outputs at the relay should be confirmed to be 100% certain something strange isn't going on.
Above all be careful of the fan itself , if it's running obviously but if it's not it could start during repair

Overheating


Sounds like a cooling fan are not turning on. Assuming you have an electric cooling fan. It could be something simple like a fuse or a relay which is stopping the fans from working, or it could be something as bad as the motor burning out on the fan.

Temperture gauge at hot coolant is full


You may need to replace the thermostat or water pump, even flush out the system. Best thing to do is to flush out the system with radiator flush and follow the instructions and replace the oil antifreeze with new one with a 50/50 mix (water/antifreeze), if you not sure how to do that you can buy them premixed. Next is to replace the thermostat and radiator cap, that should fix the problem. The last thing would be the water pump is weak and would need to be replaced but lets start with the simple., The other thing to if it's only hot when your at a stop light then check the fuse and relays and wire harness to your radiator fan to make sure it's working. If you turn on your A/C that would over ride the temperature sensor and activate the fans so you know that is working, so if's running hot all the time even when your driving, replace the thermostat and coolant. Good luck.

What do i do if overheating


Hi,

To "heat up" is normal. We want the car to heat up, but to go any higher than about 225 degrees would be to overheat, and that would be bad. If that is what you mean, then there are a number of things that could be causing it. It could be as simple as to high of a concentration of anti-freeze to water mixture(should be a bout 50%), to something as costlty as a blown head gasket. The water pump could have the impellers rusted off and not pumping, the radiator could be stopped up, there could be air trapped i the cooling system, there could be an obstruction to air flow in front of the radiator like leaves trapped in front of it, the cooling fan may not be working, even the thermostat you installed could be defective or installed backwards. It boils down to this: You either have a coolant flow or an air flow problem. (I am including the blown headgasket in the coolant flow catagory) As simple way to narrow it down is when then car is running hot, put your hand on the radiator. If the radiator is hot, then you probably have an air flow problem, see if the fan is working, or there are leaves in front of the radiator. If the radiator is cold, then you have a coolant flow problem, something is keeping coolant from flowwing into the radiator. (water pump, ai in the system, stopped up radiator, etc)

Thanks.

Runs hot


Your coolant level sensor has stopped working, my 93 olds regency is doing the same thing. You will need to goto the a Buick/GM dealership to get the part, it plugs into the side of the radiator.

AS you changed the parts this maybe problem with the air flow in the car
