SOURCE: Fan motor blows air toward the grill

The rad fan should **** the air through the grill from front to back. Best of luck.

Hi, i replace the thermostat and water pump flashed the radiator has coolant but still overheating, what else could it be its golf 4 tdi diesel 2002. Thank you

Radiator may have rust/salt deposits inside, if that is case its cheaper and better to change the radiator. Also for future don't use normal tap water in radiator, use a coolant + ph balanced water meant for radiators to reduce salt buildup inside radiator.

Also check the radiator fan is working ok and rotating in the right direction, sucking cool air inside not blowing out hot engine air to the radiator. Some electric fans can have wires mixed up so they start in the wrong direction. (make sure fan is sucking cool air outside towards the engine).

In some cars, radiator fan has a top cover that stops hot engine air getting sucked by the fan, if your car has it, make sure it is fitted properly and is in good order.

Some cars have a fan fitted on the AC condenser, make sure this fan is working as well.

Let's pretend you are an object. If you always saw the exposed side of the pictured fan, would you be the radiator, or would you be the engine.

This is not rocket science or law. this is auto mechanics. It has all been done a few million times a year before you. Please keep it simple! Find me and Randy helpful please. Youtube is your friend. lets-pretend-object-always-saw-exposed-u40lsvyytnuesyuv3fbafhtd-4-0.jpg

It should pull air threw the radiator towards the engine. These are DC motors and can push air the wrong way.

Does radiator fan blow towards or away from radiator


During normal driving, the fan will be off, because air is being pushed through the radiator. When stopped, the fan will cut on, pushing air through the radiator and cooling the engine.

Also, make sure the radiator fan is on the inside (engine side) of the radiator, so it is not blocking the air during normal driving.

The fuse for radiator fan blows off whenever it is replaced on audi A4 2002

I would suggest that the electric fan motor is shorted out, unplug the motor and see if the short goes away, if it does replace the fan motor.

I have a 1995 cadilac elderado that keeps over heating, it has excessive preasure building up we have changed the thermastate, ran a hot wire to the fan so it always runs , changed tempature sending unite...

When the engine is cold,and the radiator is full,starting the engine,does it blow out the radiator?If it does,then a head,or head gasket is blown.If not,bleed the system of air.The engine cooling system might have air that needs to be purged out.

No the radiator fans do not have anything to do with the A/C, they help keep the motor cool in traffic. It sounds like you might have done some damage to the wiring with the jury rig repair job.
