    Hello, Im have an 02 trailblazer and presents this problem: when I start the engine the fan clutch engages and it blows normally (a little noisy), then when temperature rise up it disengages until it comes overheated about 120°C and engages again, why is this happening? it´s the thermostat wrong?

It only engages if the motor is runing. it is electric and not spring loaded.

Overheating and antifreeze coming from cap, but fan to cool it down, is barely turning what could cause this.


Could be a faulty fan motor, or fan relay.
You should be able to run a wire from battery power to the fan to make it run at full speed to test.

Compressor and fans do not turn on until rev engine


I passed this question the first time I read it, so I will take a stab at it now.
The fans don't come on until the compressor has pumped the freon pressure up to say 150 or 200 psi. And the compressor clutch has to have voltage to engage the clutch.
I wonder if the clutch is going and needs 14 volts instead of 12 to engage ? Or the relay that powers the clutch ?
Speeding up the engine would increase voltage from the alternator.
This is assuming the serpentine belt is tight and everything else is working correctly.
I think I would swap the relay with another and put a meter on that circuit to the ac clutch to see what it takes to engage it.

Motor fan is extremely loud!!


It is likely your fan clutch has gone bad and needs to be replaced.
Fan clutches are engineered to improve the vehicle’s cooling system efficiency. The clutch engages the fan at low speeds when additional cooling is needed. At high speeds the clutch disengages the fan, removing the load against the engine and allowing the engine to run more efficiently.
There are two types of fan clutches, non-thermal and thermal. Non-thermal fan clutches engage the fan based on the shaft speed of the water pump. Thermal fan clutches engage the fan based on a bi-metal thermostatic coil, which senses the under hood temperature.

A/c compressor won't engage and the cooling fan not operating


The cooling fan does not come on until the engine temp reaches 229 degrees. it is controlled by a cooling fan relay. Cheeck for power at the fan motor and check the relay. The A/C. If yuor a/c system is low on freon the low pressure switch on the accumulator will not complete the circuit for the clutch. Check the charge, voltage present at the clutch or the low pressure switch. You can install a jumper in place of the switch to test.

Car overheated and antifreze was boiling and spewing over until engine cooled. 2004 jeep liberty 2wd. Thanks!


Need to know what caused the overheating, possible broken serpentine belt, thermostat, water pump, radiator, fan clutch, cooling fan motor. After motor has cooled down fill radiator with water till full, look make sure serpentine belt not broke, start engine run about 5 minutes, turn off, let sit 3 minutes, start engine look at temperture gauge is it over half way of gauge, Do you have a fan blade driven by water pump or electric fans?

I have 2003 grand cherokee with 140000 miles that overheats at idle. as soon as i start moving again, the temp goes back to normal.


You have two fan's on your truck, 1 is a fan clutch runs with the drive belt, 2 elec fan motor, with test light and engine running at normal temp, just a little bit above 1/2 way on your temp gauge check voltage at elec. cooling fan harness if you have voltage at one of the two wire's and fan don't turn on, bad cooling fan motor, on the fan clutch after you check voltage at elec. fan motor turn engine off, with your hand spin drive belt fan if it spin's freely bad fan clutch, replace it.Also check cooling level.Hope this was very helpful

1995 honda accord ex auxiliary cooling fan not engaging


The accy fan you are refurring to is actually the a/c consensor fan.The only time that fan operates is with the cycling of the a/c system.Verify by turning a/c on ,fan should come on & off with a/c cycles..

Electric fans don't run, but checks Ok. Air condition not working. compressure checks Ok,but clutch not engageing but can jump wire clutch to engage. All fuses checks good,


FIRST IS CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON....YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO UNPLUG THE ECT... ELECTRONIC COOLING TEMP SENSOR.....A TWO WIRE SENSOR THAT TELLS THE COMPUTER THE TEMP OF MOTOR....WHEN THE MOTOR TEMP GETS HIGH THE COMPUTER GROUNDS THE COOLING FAN RELAY TO TURN FANS ON..IF FANS DON'T RUN WITH SENSOR UNPLUGGED THE GET A SMALL PIECE OF WIRE AND FOR A SHORT TIME SHORT THE TWO WIRES ON THE PLUG FOR SENSOR...IF IT DOES COME ON REPLACE SENSOR IF IT DOES NOT COME ON SUSPECT COMPUTER...ONLY IF ALL FUSES ARE OK LET ME KNOW

You can purchase a "Hotter" Thermostat for your Truck. Go to any Decent Auto Parts Store and let them know your Problem, They should be able to help Further with this Issue.
