Use a test light to check for power at the fan connector when the engine is running and hot. If voltage is there, replace fan. If not, interrogate fan relay and relay socket for additional troubleshooting.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6022358-relay_check . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

My van goes in the red when speed is under 45mph after driving the water gets hot fast, after speed up over that it goes back down


Depending on the van Im going to assume it has an electric fan for the rad. When it reaches about 3/4 of the way to red hop out and see if the fan is on if its not its the fan, sensor or wiring. If it is its possible there is an issue with the thermostat but i doubt it as the temp lowers when moving at higher speeds. If its a mechanical fan on say a v8 then get it 3/4 hot and shut the engine off. Turn the fan blade and see if it has heavy resistance. If it spins free replace it.
Good luck

How do I change fan switch on 2005 E250 cargo van


Fan switch ? Radiator fans not working ? Your vehicle has a cylinder head temperature sensor . The sensor is a input to the PCM - engine computer , the PCM inturn will energize a relay turnning on the cooling fans when temp gets hot enough . Before replacing a sensor your vehicle may not need i suggest you have it diagnoised .

93 nissan quest overheats


i would replace thermostat and also check to see if fan motor is running. Best way to check fan is to turn on the defrost and fan should kick on. flushing radiator would help and also check for leaks in the coolant system. hoses,heater core,waterpump. Hope this help and good luck

Mine does the same and I've read about many others. Mine gets hot until turn on AC, which turns on elec fan. I may install a toggle to the fan so I can turn on w/o the AC.

It starts fine, runs good until the engine heats u...


Check to see if the radiator fan is coming on when the van gets hot.If it does not then on a 2.6 liter engine.look on the bottom part of the radiator on drivers side for a fan switch that could be bad and not letting the radiator fan to come on. On a 3.0 liter engine the coolant temperature sensor is screwed into the thermostat housing. And on a 3.3 liter and on a 3.8 liter engine the coolant temperature sensor is screwed into the front cylinder head. Anyone of these can cause the van to run hot and eventually die with no restart until the temperature has cooled down. Check the fan first with two jumper wires from the positive/negative post to the fan connector on a 2.6 liter engine (positive wire to open pin on plug,negative wire to insulated plug side. On all v6 engines hook jumper wires to motor. To the left side will be positive and negative to the right. Do not let both wires touch together while testing. If motor does not respond to direct wiring then replace it. Another thing to look at is the catalytic converter on van. Check the exhaust flow when the van is running cold and again when it gets hot. If the flow starts to slow down when the van gets hot then remove the converter(plugging up). After doing that run the van again to see if the van runs ok. Hope this will help you.

2000 Chevy Venture Van has been overheating. The temp will spike all the way up and then quickly drop again. Back and forth like that.


Almost sounds like the same symptons as my van. Turns out the guage was not the problem. The van was in fact running hot because the electric radiator fans were not kicking in when the engine was hot. I replaced the relay switches for the fans. There are two of these in the fuse panel under the hood. There has been no problem with overheating since
