SOURCE: Porsche boxster 1998 overheats very easily

it could be the thermostat has gone bad-does top hose get hot if no then likely bad thermostat, water pump is bad if pulley is wobbly it is bad, radiator is clogged with corrosion, look in rad when cold and if it is dirty or milky it needs flush and refill with new antifreeze

SOURCE: cooling fan stays on when car is off.

It would be normal for the cooling fans to run after you shut the car off because the power to the fans is turned on and off by a thermostat and not the key. Don't worry about it unless it runs for more than 15-20 minutes when you shut the car off. It may run that long in summer if the car is hot but less in the winter. Hope this helps.

I have 2006 Toyota Noah how long should my radiator fan run


I am not familiar with your model, but the "rule of thumb" is :
The radiator fan "to cool the engine" will run until the engine temperature has cooled sufficiently to allow the temperature sensor to kick off.
(That temperature sensor is screwed into the engine block.)
This may be as little as a minute to as many as 5-8 minutes.
If your car had air conditioning, that would be yet another fan, that should run only when the air conditioning is turned on.

When I turn the engine off the engine cooling fan stays on and does not shut off


depending on the engine temperature the fan is supposed to remain on after you turn the engine off, until the engine reaches a preset cooler temperature. when it reaches cooler temperature usually within 5 minutes or so it should cut off... if you cut it off and it is running 30 minutes later.. then there is a problem with the fan relay or temperature sending unit.

Is the engine actually cooling off? If the temp switch isn't seeing a drop in temperature, it will keep the fan running.

sounds like the radiator cooling fan is stuck on .. that normally only comes on if the radiator gets hot ... there is a thermal switch mounted on the radiator that senses the temperature and turns on the fan . if its contacts get stuck then the fan stays on ... .. in some cars there is a relay that could get stuck . the relay is operated by the thermal switch .. .

Why does my radiator cooling fan remain on after I turn off the ignition?


The car has a computer that is linked to the engine. It is hard wired to it meaning the computer is always on. Upon shutting your engine off taking the keys in hand the computer is still on sensing the engines temperture. The coolant sensor will send power to the relay to keep the fans running untill cooled down enough. Then the sensor will cut off power to the relay shutting off the fans

Cooling fan will not run


CHECK FUSES /FUSIBLE LINKS IF THEY ARE GOOD RUN THE ENGINE UNTILL NORMAL OPERATING TEMPERTURE IS REACHED , THEN ALLOW IT TO IDLE . IF THE FAN DOES NOT CUT IN WITHIN A FEW MINUTES ,OR BEFORE THE TEMPERATURE GAUGE APPROACHES THE 110 MARK OR THE RED END OF THE SCALE ,SWITCH OFF THE IGNITION AND DISCONNECT THE WIRING PLUG FROM THE COOLING FAN SWITCH , BRIDGE THE RELEVANT TWO CONTACTS IN THE WIRING PLUG USING A LENGHT OF SPARE WIRE AND SWITCH ON THE IGNITION . IF THE FAN NOW OPERATES , THE SWITCH IS PROBABLY FAULTY AND SHUD BE RENEWED.

Does the radiator fan keep running even after switching off the engine


The temperature actuated switch is stuck in the ON position if the cooling fan(s) continue to operate after the engine has cooled down. Locate the defective sensor switch and replace it to eliminate the problem. This could be continuous or intermittent and either way if the switch is faulty it should be replaced.
