That depends on if you stop to let it cool down if the engine temp gets too high or not

I hit a deer with my durango 2003 would it hurt to drive it without the electric fan working it is gone?


if the fan is in front of the ac condensor, turn the ac off
if the fan is used to cool the radiator, ( from the engine side ) there is a very high risk of burning the motor
I would rather trailer the vehicle than pay for another motor

Will it hurt my durango without the electric fan working?


Hi, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

If your 1999 Durango has a mechanical fan and an electric fan then this is what they are used for. The mechanical fan should you have one is used for the engine coolant to keep the engine from overheating. While the electric fan is used for the A/C System to keep the pressure from getting to high and damaging the A/C Compressor. NOTE: In this cases scenario with no relay the A/C system would not work properly. BUT, if you only have an electric fan then the engine would overheat because it works both systems. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website at: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

My 2003 dodge durango keeps overheating , i just had new radiator put in and it started overheating again but now it is overheating with a very loud screeching noise like a belt sound what could be ca


as for noise will have to inspect under hood,could be fan or belt or pulley ,water pump .these are some things it could...My suggestion for overheating is replace thermostat. If your car has electric cooling fan then it may not be working..turn defrost on and if fan kicks on then fan motor is good..Now this does not mean that fan is working properly because fan is controlled by heat sensor switch that kicks fan on when motor reaches heat range......Things i would have checked....hope this information helps and good luck and Please rate my post...

I own a 2003 Dodge Durango. The coolant fan stopped working. I found a plug loose near the fan. Is it possible it came unplugged? If yes, then is the plug inside the fan case? I have looked all over and...


I couldn't find the plug or wire on the diagram on my online resource, either. The fan must have a cable going to it to operate, somehow, though, I agree.

95 Jetta. Radiator fans won't stop. Even after I pull the fuse, they still won't stop


Locate fan relays most likely in plastic box under hood & pull them if you have 2 pull them both. You cant drive without them in will overheat.But wont hurt to drive with them on.

The water pump can be removed and installed without discharging the air conditioning system (if equipped).
  1. Disconnect battery negative cable.
  2. Drain cooling system. Refer to Cooling System-Draining and Filling.
  3. Do not waste reusable coolant. If solution is clean, drain coolant into a clean container for reuse. WARNING: Constant tension hose clamps are used on most cooling system hoses. When removing or installing, use only tools designed for servicing this type of clamp, such as special clamp tool (number 6094). snap-on clamp tool (number HPC-20) may be used for larger clamps. Always wear safety glasses when servicing constant tension clamps. CAUTION: A number or letter is stamped into the tongue of constant tension clamps. If replacement is necessary, use only an original equipment clamp with matching number or letter.
  4. Remove upper radiator hose clamp and hose at radiator.
  5. The thermal viscous fan drive is attached (threaded) to the water pump hub shaft. Remove fan/viscous fan drive assembly from water pump by turning mounting nut counterclockwise as viewed from front. Threads on viscous fan drive: are RIGHT HAND. A Snap-On 36 MM Fan Wrench (number SP346 from Snap-On Cummins Diesel Tool Set number 2017DSP) can be used. Place a bar or screwdriver between water pump pulley bolts to prevent pulley from rotating. Do not attempt to remove fan/viscous fan drive assembly from vehicle at this time.
  6. If water pump is being replaced, do not unbolt fan blade assembly from thermal viscous
  7. Remove fan shroud attaching hardware (two bolts at bottom-two clips at top).
  8. Remove fan shroud and fan blade/viscous fan drive assembly from vehicle as a complete unit.
  9. After removing fan blade/viscous fan drive assembly, do not place thermal viscous fan drive in horizontal position. If stored horizontally, silicone fluid in viscous fan drive could drain into its bearing assembly and contaminate lubricant.
  10. Do not remove water pump pulley bolts at this time.
  11. Remove accessory drive belt as follows: The drive belt is equipped with a spring loaded automatic tensioner. Relax tension from belt by rotating tensioner clockwise (as viewed from front). When all belt tension has been relaxed, remove accessory drive belt.
  12. Remove four water pump pulley-to-water pump hub bolts and remove pulley from vehicle.

Have a 2001 Dodge Durango. Temp is hot, coolant is cold. Replaced thermostat still running hot 2001 durango stuck in 4 wheel drive. 2 wheel drive blinks


If you havent already, leave the radiator cap off of your radiator while you start the vehicle. Be sure the engine is cold, you could get hurt if not because the coolant will build up pressure. If the cap is off, no pressure will build. Wait a while for the vehicle to heat up, look in the opening, and see if the coolant is flowing. If so, could be a bad fan, or gummed up radiator......if NOT your turbine on your water pump could be bad, OR, by chance, the thermostat is not working.
