SOURCE: I just bought a new radiator fan relay.(not the

This is a fan module(relay)It should be ,if you are standing in front of van,and facing motor,down to your right.Look under the van,up at the radiator,and you should see it.I think if you follow the wires from the fans,it will go right to it.If the module went out,chances are one of the fans are bad.to replace the fans order the fan assembly.If you try to replace one fan in the fan assembly,the blade will break.Then you will be stuck with a motor you bought,and need the whole assembly.If I can help,let me know.

The coolant sensor is usually located in the bottom of the radiator.

My 2006 VW Jetta is making loud, screaming/screeching, sound from the passenger side-front, behind the the dash/glove box, between the engine and wheel.


I would like to think it is the electric fan behind the radiator that is screeching. When you stop the car, everything should stop, but that fan. That fan is supposed to cool the radiator, even after the engine is off and the car stops. It would not be so bad, because it does not run as much, in cold weather, but in hot weather, it should start sooner and run longer.
I needs to be replaced.
Be blessed.

Hearing water behind dashboard


This could be a simple air pocket. Run vehicle with radiator cap off. You will see air bubbles come up. Usually the fan will cycle on and off 3 times and both upper and lower radiator hoses hot. Remember to turn off all heat ac and defrost as this can prematurely cycle cooling fans. This will get all air out. This is also the way to do it anytime coolant is needed and or cooling repairs are done.

Over heating


If your vehical is over heating at idea it is most likely the radiator fan
this can be checked by running the car until it heats up and looking at the fan to see if it is running.
This usually isn't an issue as long as you are driving, but when you stop or driving slow or in traffic it will start heating up quickly. your fan keeps air flow going through the engine while at a stop to help cool down the engine compartment and pull.push air through the radiator

If you still over heat no matter if your driving or stopped it may be a thermostatic radiator valve that went bad. this is a release valve between the radiator and the engine that helps control the coolent flow between the engine and radiator and control how much heat is taken out of the engine to be cooled in the radiator.

So, run the car and see if the radiator fan kicks on. if it does, it's probably not a bad fan. if your car starts over heating and the fan never comes on it's most likely some problem with the fan

if it is turning and you are still having problems overheating go buy a new valve and change it out. cost you at most 5 bucks for a new one (probably less)

Get engine up to normal running temp. Turn on heater and blows warm until temp guage drops back to "C". Replaced thermo, still does it. ???


see if the radiator fan is it running even when the engine is at C or at heat
if its running when its at C the thermostat is not working properly
do you keep the windows open when you are driving can be a reason
as the car has a radiator in side also which gives you the heat

My car keeps over heating only when in slow moving traffic or idle 2001 sunfire


Check to see if your cooling fan is working. At speeds above about 30 MPH, the fan is not needed. When you see the engine getting hot (if you have a gauge), then pull over, leave it idling, and open the hood and see if the fan is running. You should be able to see and hear it, just behind the radiator.
If the fan is not running, it is likely the fan relay has failed. It could be the fan thermostat or the fan motor itself, but odds are it is the relay. That is an inexpensive fix.

Over heating when sitting at idle for a short while


It sounds like it may be your electric cooling fan. When the car is sitting idling does the fan behind the radiator ever come on? If not then this is your problem. Your car doesn't overheat when it moving because you're passing air through the radiator with the movement of the car. The problem could be the fan itself, the fan relay, or a temperature sensor.

The crown victoria keeps running hot and need to


Before you get into this involved job I have a few suggestions. First is the pump leaking causing the system to lose coolant. Grab the fan and try to move it from side to side to see if there is play. Next when was the last time the thermostat was changed out. The thermostat can be stuck in a way as to restrict water flow. Another cause of over heating is a clogged radiator. Older cars can have a slug build up in the radiator core causing a significant cooling lose.
Water pumps on a Crown Vic is located on the front of the engine behind the fan. You should really get a service manual as there are a lot of steps in this job that must be done correctly to avoid future problems.
You start by draining the entire cooling system by opening up the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator. This antifreeze must be disposed of properly by taking it to a repair shop for pick up. Next remove the fan guard followed by disconnecting all the belts. Some people remove the radiator to gain working room. before removing the radiator disconnect the lower hose and the upper hose to the engine. The transmission oil cooling lines are next. Now remove all the bolts holding the radiator in place. As you can see this is not a job for a novas. If you are not mechanically inclined this could be a nightmare of a job.

Electric radiator fan won't come on when engine gets hot


I had the same problem. Check the fans relay behind the front grill, in front of the radiator, more accesible if you take the headlight (driver's side) out.

Radiator fan for 2001 Jeep Cherokee


Had this problem and one thing that even Chilton manuals only show in fine print sorta say is that Jeep cherokee has a relay sensor for the coolant fan usualy right behind the passenger or driver side headlight you may have to remove the bumper also its rather easy.Its a liitle black box thats screwd down on the panel just unscrew it unplug it replace mine ran me around $60.00.Before I learned about this after replacing the thermostate and just about to rip out the water pump my buddy told me about the sensor after replacing over a year ago no problems.
