Cooling fan is designed to freewheel below a certain temperature. Once that temp is reached it locks. In working that way, it saves fuel by not drawing power away from the engine unless needed.
Ticking can be a valve lifter. If it's minor, often some Marvel oil or lucas engine treatment will help with that.

I have a 2007 Durango. Engine off and ticking under hood. Stops if break is applied. Help.

Most likely the brakes cooling down. Metal contracting will make a ticking sound. This is normal for engine as well as brakes in cool down condition.

Fan won't kick on a 2006 dodge magnum. want to know where to look for the fuse.

you need to check the fuses in the panel both under the dash and under the hood.if these are okay then you will have to check the fan itself to make sure the fan is working.other things are the fan relay and temp sensor that tell the pcm to turn on the cooling fans,if you are talking about the rad cooling fan.

2001 buick lesabre is running slightly hot. i just replaced the thermostat and 2 elbow joints (sorry dont know what their called) and did a complete flush about a month ago

replacing the thermostat is exactly what i would have suggested for your vehicle for the overheating issue. try this,with the engine running at operating temperature,check to insure that the cooling fans coming on when the engines gaining temperature. your cooling fan may be going bad and not coming on when needed,in this case it may be a bad cooling fan sensor,or just a bad cooling fan altogether.with the engine running after you've driven the car until it gets warm,open the hood and look visually at the cooling fan to insure it's running{the engine fan} in front of your radiator. if it's not running {fan} check in the main fuse box under the hood for a bad engine fan relay 1st if no bad relay,then check for a bad engine fan motor.with the key switch in "off"position try to spin the engine fan manually by hand. if it does spin by hand it still may be a bad fan motor. or bad fan you have a check engine light on? if so you can have it code read at any auto zone or advance auto for free.this may be of great assistance to you if the check engine light is on. hope this helps and thank you for choosing

A motor runs with no one in the car

The cooling fan on the radiator is being turned on by the radiator temp switch. This is normal. It keeps excessive heat and pressure from building up inside your engine. Excessive heat can cause radiators to overflow or hoses to burst. It is NOT a bad thing for that fan to be running for 2 - 3 mins.

2001 passat electric fan runs continously until battery is dead

There are extra cooling pumps that some foreign cars have that run for a designated time after the engine is shut off. I had a Mini cooper made by BMW that had it. If you hear it running for a while, but then it shuts off, thats normal. If it stays on for ever and never shuts off, I honestly don't know what to tell you
