Yes there is a clutch on your main fan and it sucks trying to get it off and replace it with out taking out the radiator...when i first bought my jeep three years ago i had a small hole in my radiator and when i fixed that soon after i found out the my fan clutch was not working right either...so i had to take every thing back off and fix my fan...now it works great

2002 mercury cougar overheats at idle and when drove faster ik head gasket isnt blown, thermostat , water pump, relay, its been flushed out till clean idk whats wrong at all.


I suspect that if you do not have electric fan/s then the fan clutch or viscous fan hub has failed
indications are over heating at idle , stop lights , slow traffic, high rpms at slow speed but cools down as soon as there is enough road speed to put air through the radiator.

Why is my 1993 Audi 90cs overheating?


There are dozens of possibilities from as simple as a bad pressure cap or low coolant level to as bad as a cracked engine block. Knowing the conditions that cause the overheat would help diagnose, here's some basics--assuming the coolant is full. Only overheats at low speed is generally an airflow problem: fan not running because of a fuse, relay, temperature switch, or dead fan motor. Only overheats at high speed is generally a coolant flow problem: radiator is plugged up, faulty thermostat, water pump vanes damaged. Tell us anything you've checked, any recent repairs done, and the conditions under which it overheats.

Overheats... fan doesn't seem to be working.


clutch fan? electric fan?...if clutch fan it should have a slight resistance when you turn it...if electric either fuse or temperature coolant sending unit mal-functioning which turns fan and and off as needed...sometimes there are two of these type switches which of course are mounted into the water jacket..

2000 Cadillac Seville overheating-- Replaced the waterpump,removed the thermostat and replaced the radiator cap, and still overheats.The fans seem to run on low speed,do they have a high speed ? I have...


Wasn't all that work done at a repair shop?

And weren't all the questions addressed when you
got it back or called & asked since you still have issues?

Replacing parts is not diagnosing the issues, only testing the
vehicles systems to see what does work correctly & then
what doesn't

Why mini cooper 03 overheats while the AC is on?


Check to see if the electric cooling fans are working. Some of the fans have 2 speeds and some need to operate on high speed constantly when the air is on. High speed could be a burnout.

There should be a temperature sensor, a fan Relay, and then the electric cooling fans.

Engine fan not working


Could be low on coolant, the cooling fan motor, a relay, or the fuse among other things.
A mechanic would check for power at the fan motor after checking the fuse.
Is the check engine light on ?

Overheating I change waterpump, thermostat, flush radiator, change drivebelt, radiator cap radiator hose and it still overheat when i drive it on highway it dont overheat just driving in town it overheats


Two things you can check: First pull your oil dipstick and make sure that the oil is clear and not cloudy or milky, if it is you have a blown head gasket. Secondly if the vehicle has an electric fan make sure that it is coming on. You can do this by starting up the vehicle and letting it warm up for 10min or so or until the guage shows that it is hot. Then look under the hood to see if the fan is turning, you may have to watch it for a few min because they will cycle on and off. If the fan doesn't come on, that is why it overheats in town because it is not getting enough airflow across the radiator. If the fan does not come on you can start troubleshooting it by checking the fuses and relays in the dash and under the hood. If the relays and fuses are good and the fan still won't come on, with the key on and engine off, carefully wiggle the wire that goes into the fan, these sometimes make bad connections, but again be careful because if that is the issue the fan will begin spinning so watch your hands and fingers.

What would cause my 2002 zx2 to overheat ?


Faulty thermostat, failed water pump, inoperable radiator fan, low coolant due to leak, faulty radiator cap, leaking head gasket, low oil, major exhaust leak near front, exhaust blockage, or incorrect ignition timing. If there is crust around radiator cap, cap is leaking. How long does it take to overheat? If it runs smoothly when cool, and all fluids are at correct levels, you can rule our head gasket, radiator cap, and ignition timing. If it overheats very quickly and fluids are correct, it is probably thermostat or water pump. If it seems to do better at higher speeds, it is probably radiator fan. You can check this by allowing vehicle to run in Park with hood open. Monitor engine temp on dash. When it is at or slightly above normal running temp, radiator fan should come on. Also note exhaust sound. If it seems loud and overheats gradually, you may have a leak before the converter. If the exhaust sounds quiet, but exhaust manifold is getting extremely hot (may glow red), there is probably a blockage. There will also be OK starting and idle but poor acceleration if exhaust is partly blocked.

Overheats when idoling, but not while moving


possibilities include: fan clutch, water pump going out, missing fan shroud or baffles in front end, clogged radiator fins or a/c condensor may need cleaned. Possibly stuck thermostat, low coolant level , and this can be caused by faulty radiator cap. Hope this helps!
