SOURCE: 1992 corvette - cooling fans do not actuate at temperature.

Do the fans come on when you turn on the air conditioner. I do believe the temp switch for the fan is on the passenger side of the engine above the starter.

SOURCE: Dodge Neon cooling fan fuse keeps blowing,

If there are no other components on the circuit, then most likely cause is the wire is shorting out someplace. The wire insulation may be damaged at somepoint, and it is touching a grounded point in the circuit.

SOURCE: The cooling fan on the driver side of the radiator

One of the fans is for your radiator and the other is your condenser fan (for your air conditioning). The condenser fan starts at a higher temp than your radiator fan.
To test the condenser fan (the one on the right side, facing the car) unplug the electrical connector at the motor and use jumper wires to connect the fan directly to the battery. If it runs, check the fuses (engine compartment far upper left as you face the car), then the relay (right front corner of the engine compartment as you face it). The radiator fan typically engages between 189 and 199 degrees, but the condenser fan typically engages between 217 and 232 degrees. In other words they don't necessarily run at the same time. First of all, try letting the car run until the engine is warm WITH the ac running. If the condenser far does not run, then go through the checking procedure.
I hope this gets you started on a fix.

SOURCE: Cooling Fan won't come on, coolant flows into overflow tank

there is a switch in the engine intake or cylinder head that controls the cooling fans. The switch is the one with only 1 green wire hooked to it. Turn the key to run, with the engine stopped pull this wire off and touch it to a ground( cylinder head, engine block) and the fan should start, if not look at the fuse, if it does you need to replace the switch.

Does anybody have a video link on how to flush the cooling system on a GM 3.1L SFI OHV 6cyl motor? I need a vid for this particular motor cause mine is still overheating & i have looked everywhere.


flushing a cooling system is the same method as any other motor

do it without the thermostat fitted
or water pump opening

sacrifice an old radiator hose to adapt a garden hose fitting
for radiator flush

air in system fix
your thermostat housing has no air bleed valve
no top radiator cap

old school way
heater on full
run motor till thermostats fully open
burp radiator hoses
wait till water is running up into over flow bottle without bubble
replace cap
turn off heater
correct level in over flow bottle

why still over heating
you fitted everything i would have ... yet still overheat
possibles
leaking inlet manifold gaskets
hose clamps loose
cooling fans spinning too slow
thermostatic fan switch faulty
aluminum radiator is a big one
air ..fins bent or some water channels blocked

or possible head gasket leak

Car is running hot and I put a new thermostat in and water bump


make sure the radiator cooling fans are coming on. GM has also had major problems with the lower intake gaskets leaking on the V-6 engines. sometimes when refilling the cooling systems air lock can occur. run the engine until it warms up and then turn off and let it cool down, if coolant level goes down repeat this process two or three times. other causes could be clogged radiator, or worse case scenario blown head gaskets. also i have on occasion got bad thermostats from the parts store. the upper radiator hose will get very hot when the thermostat opens. run the engine and hold the upper hose and when the t-stat opens the hose will get hot. then when the cooling fan comes on hot air will rush from from the fans. if the fans come on and the air is cool then there is a circulation problem. t-stat, clogged radiator, low coolant, head gaskets. good luck.

2003 Honda Civic LX 90k miles replaced parts: thermostat, radiator cap, radiator. major timing belt job including water pump. Car is overheating: When i am idle coming off the highway the gauge...


it is possible that when the water pressure rises in your radiator, and the radiator shoots the water into the reserve tank, that hose is not properly put on(happens alot when changing radiator) and the coolant leaks rapidly through there. another thing i suggest is observe your fan behavior. fans usually are only supposed to turn on for a couple of seconds, around 10 or 15. park your car, and let the car reach normal operating temperature. when the car starts to over heat, check to see if your fans turn off at all. if they do, then it is most likely the tw swith,or the water temperature switch. if you notice the fans stay running, then i suggest obesrving your hoses and replaing any that spill coolant because even a pressure test on your cooling system can miss a small pucture in a hose, which after a while will cause your coolant to leak, and your car to overheat. hope this helps. if still nothing, drop a comment and ill help you out somemore, but for now, this is the practical thing to do. hope this helps, goodluck.

My 1997 Grand Am is leaking antifreeze. It overheats and smells like burning antifreeze. We had a new water pump put on it and a new heater core put on it 4 days ago. Neither of those solved the problem....


it maybe a hose not installed correctly, if it is a v-6 check the intake gaskets for signs of leaking, when you over heat the engine, automatically replace the thermostat, the cooling fans may have a hand in the overheating issue, they may not be turning on due fan motor failure, check cooling fan fuses, very rarely does the coolant temp sensor give out and if it has, that would also be the reason the cooling fans are not coming on, a cracked radiator is also common on gm or any other radiator with plastic tanks. good luck

2002 Jetta 1.8T blew 40A cooling fan fuse - overheated, destroyed 4 way cooling hose connector - replaced all- now it still runs very hot, inside temp reads 190 (but temp is much higher), cooling fans run...


Then replace the thermostat, because if on lower hose not hot and on upper hose scalding hot = antifreeze flow blocked by the thermostat wich remains closed!!!

Overheating


The components of your cooling system are, radiator, resovoir, hoses, thermostat, water pump, and the water pump belt, and cooling fans. First, check for the obvious. Coolant levels, is the belt on the water pump pulley and fuctioning. Is there a coolant leak. Are the fans working. Next if all the above is ok, replace the thermostat, (very inexpensive fix). If that doesn't correct the problem, do a coolant system flush.

98 runner cooling issues


You probably have airlock in the cooling system.

Not sure about the 4 runner's cooling system, but if there is airlock I usually take the coolant back out, take the thermostat back out, fill the engine block from this hole with 50/50 coolant, reinstall the thermostat, upper hose, fill the radiator and tank, then run the vehicle with the heater on max (rad cap off) and then fill the rad as the rest of the air comes out.
