If the cooling fan is not coming on soon enough its more than likely that the coolant tempreture senser needs replacing there will be more than one usully one for guage in dash and one for ecu which determines when to start and stop fan

1994mitsubishispacewagon still overheats after replacing auxilliary fan sensor, cleaned the hoses, pls help


Thermostat stuck take it out. leave it out .. try it ...then
put in a new one...or water pump weak. Also try wiring the auxiliary fan and any other fans so that anytime the vehicles motor is ON the fans are ON don't depend on a sensor on a Mitsubishi of that age...fans that don't come on soon enough, or stay on long enough, or turn on at all without letting you know until the motor overheats..... , are the leading cause of death for vehicles~!! lol

Hi, It's me again, the 97 Crown Vic. I understand exactly what you're saying and will have someone look under my car ASAP. The one thing that I just don't get is.... even when it's not...


Your car has a temperature senser and as soon as the temperature is above a certain level the engine fails as a way of safety. its a safety control switch . First start the engine when it is cool and then check the performance of the fan. Is the generating enough air to cool the engine.as it is running check the temperature gauge i the car and see the level . It could be the fan not providing enough air cool the engine.

I have a 94 mustang with an electric fan. The fan works perfectly when i start the car and its cold. when the temp of the water gets up to about 185 the fan kicks on . it can idle all day and the fan works...


is the car running hot? some cooling fans never come on going down the road because the air comjng through the front of the vehicle keeps the car cool enough that it doesn't need to come on. but if it is overheating then you may want to check the cooling fan relay.

Overheats if left idling but not if driving...cooling fans aren't coming on...what couls be wrong?


the cooling fans on your car are comanded on by the engine control module which reads engine temperature from the temperature sensor . when comanded on the engine control module sends a signal to the cooling fan relays . which in turn runs the current to the cooling fans . So you might want to check the cooling fan relays and make sure the fues for the cooling fans are good and the relays .if the cooling fan fuses and relays are good it could be a problem with the fan motors or the engine control module not reading the right temperature in that case it could mean you have a problem with the temperature sensor

My 2002 Outback A/C is not working correctly. It runs cold while I am driving but turns warm as soon as I slow down or stop. I just had it recharged but no change.


Your 2002 outback has two cooling fans mounted on the radiator, one cooling fan runs only when the engine requires cooling and the other fan only comes on when the A/C is in use or if the engine temp requires extra cooling. The A/C cooling fan should come on almost at the same time when the A/C has been turned on (if the car is up to operating temp), if it is not coming on you will not move enough air through the condenser to remove the heat the A/C coolant (freon) has collected from inside the cabin. Check your fans operation.

Make sure the cooling fans are working when the engine reaches above normal temp,if they are not ,turn the ac on,and see if the cooling fans come on,if so,replace the coolant temp sensor,if it has a clutch fan,then replace it,for it is not staying engaged ,and is not turning fast enough to cool the radiator.

I would suggest checking to make sure your electric fan(s) are turning on. When you are moving they may be enough air flowing through the radiator to cool it enough not to run extremely hot, but as soon as you stop and the air stops it heats up. Check the fan(s) to see if they turning on. If not, check the fuse block ad see if the fuse or relay for the fan is bad. Hope this helps.
