You might want to check the fan relay switch it out with one that you dont need tho run the car then if the car stays cool you know that its the relay. but if that doesnt solve your problem try replaceing the temp sending unit that controls the fan there should be to temp sending unit one for the guage and oe for the fan.help this help.

1992 firebird. 305 engine after warm up starts missing under acceleration


could be a overheating issue the gague may register that it is at correct temperature but maybe just a few degrees warm causing what is called vapor lock where the gas is getting to warm and is evaporating before it gets into intake worked on same car a few years back and it turned out that they removed the botom of fan shroud causing this particular problem if your shroud is all there also check any lines tubes or hoses that lead into your air intake.also check your plug wires if rubbing on manifold when gets hot could cause a short in spark causing misfire.any check engine lights appear in the dash?

I HAVE 2008 FORD FUSION V6 SEL, THE HEAT SYSTEM IS TO SLOW IT TAKES 20MIN TO 25 MIN TO WORK.THANK YOU


This sounds like a bad water thermostat or a cooling fan relay stuck on Run. The thermostat should be under the top housing of the motor where the big radiator hose meets the engine.

The other method of cooling a hot motor is the electric fan attached to one side of the Radiator. This fan may run more when the A/C is on, but when you are using the heat it should not run constantly. This fan should be off when the motor is cold.

In some cases the sensor for the fan will make a trouble Code and light the "check engine" light on the dash. You can get a free scan from Autozone or Oreillys.

Once you get heat in the motor your heater should work quicker. If the motor is hot and the heater is not, feel the smaller hoses running from the motor to the Firewall. They are about 5/8 to 3/4 inch diameter hoses. They should be hot with the heater on. If they are hot, and the heater in the car is only warm or cold, you have a ductwork problem under the dash. If the hoses are not hot, you have a flow problem. With the flow problem, either the heater core is plugged or a water valve is not turning on.

I hope my solution has identified the problem and given you a way to trace it. Start with the thermostat, new gasket, and some antifreeze to replace spillage. If you did have a warning light, either disconnect the NEG battery cable for 10 minutes or ask Autozone or Oreillys to clear your car with their scanner. Old error codes will stay in memory for 25-35 Startups if you don't clear them.

What does the fault code 0483 mean for a 2005 dodge ram 3500?


computer confused by cooling fan voltage/current level. Is the fan working? If yes, may have a short. If no, try hotwiring to battery to see if it's good. If fan works by hotwire, suspect relay is bad. Check all wiring before buying any parts. Relay does not click in until engine is hot. Let me know if you have more questions.

No heat


are you getting any air into cabin?? cause if you ar getting air but its not coming out hot then it may be a bad heater control valve. If you are not getting any air period then its a bad blower motor or blower motor relay.

The fan wont turn on when car gets hot


Overheating or just hot? Your temp sender sends signal to the computer that sends a signal to the fan relay that turns the fan on. You can hotwire the fan motor to the battery to see if it runs. if not that's the problem. Otherwise follow through by checking sensor and relay.

Renault megane scenic RX4 climate control fan has failed


the vehicle is old enough that the fan blower motor sounds like it is in need of replacing. when you hit the dash it causes the brushes in the motor to contact enough to start the electrical connection, it may stop when it gets hot, or is turned off. the ticking sound is more than likely the bearings wore in the motor enough to cause the cage fan to touch the housing enough to cause the sound.
