I would suggest replacing the cooling fan relay in the fuse compartment under the hood first. Cooling fan motors very, very rarely go bad. You will probably end up having to remove the radiator to remove the shroud. You will save yourself a lot of time and money if you replace the relay first.

I want to know what the engine look likes with the radiaters and fans in it


I know that this may not be what you want, but it does cover how to remove the Engine Fans REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. On some models, it may be necessary to disconnect the coolant hoses from the radiator to allow clearance for removing the fans. If so, drain the cooling system, then disconnect the hoses.
  3. Unplug the fan electrical connections.
  4. Remove the mounting bolts holding the fan shroud and remove the shroud with the fan. Once removed, the fan blade may be unbolted from the shaft and the fan motor removed from the shroud. Fig. 1: The fan shrouds are secured to the radiator with a series of small bolts 86803064.jpg
    Fig. 2: When removing the fan shroud, be careful not to damage the radiator cooling fins 86803065.jpg
    To install:
  5. Position the fan on the radiator and install the mounting bolts. Tighten them to 5 ft. lbs. (7 Nm).
  6. Engage the electrical connections.
  7. If applicable, refill the cooling system.
  8. Start the engine and allow it run until it reaches normal operating temperature. Check that the fan(s) turn on. Check for leaks.

How do you change a cooling fan motor? I can't get it off the fan shroud.


You must drain the coolant from the radiator by unscrewing the drain on the drivers side of the radiator, remove the radiator hold downs (10mm) and pull up the radiator carefully to remove the 4 10mm bolts that hold the fan to the radiator, the fan unplugs right at the motor.
