What do I do to fix the fans? The car is overheating?


if a bad temperature sensor the fan might not come on at all, even though the engine is overheating.check the fan relay and or fuses. if all is fine, run a wire from battery positive to positive connection on fan, to see if the fans work themselves. you may or may not need to ground the fans. Good-Day!

Why wont my dually truck start when hot


Does the engine appear to be overheating? Signs of engine overheating are :
1. Sluggish engine operation when hot.
2. Detonation upon acceleration (pinging).
3. Coolant boiling in overflow tank.
If any of these symptoms are present, then place a cooking thermometer on the upper radiator hose where it connects to the engine. Tape the thermometer to the hose to hold it in place. Run the engine until operating temperature is reached. The temperature should stay between approx. 195deg.F and 225deg.F. If it goes over 230deg.F, then overheating is indicated. Before shutting off the engine, check to see if the engine cooling fan is running. If not, then turn on the AC switch and see if it comes on. If the fan still does not turn on, then a faulty cooling fan or fan circuit is indicated. Other causes of hard/no start when hot include :
1. Dirty air filter.
2. Bad temperature sensor (computer).
3. Bad map sensor.
4. Bad EGR valve.
5. Failing ignition module.
6. Leaking injector(s)
If the vehicle is used primarily as a work vehicle, then it might be overdue for an oil change.
If the oil is fuel soaked, then it can cause an over rich mixture during hot restart.
I hope that this information is helpful and thank you for using Fixya.com.
CAUTION : Be careful when working around a running engine. Keep hands and loose clothing away from moving engine parts and engine cooling fan.

I bought a 2004 VW Jetta GLS 1.8L Turbo earlier today. It has a clean carfax and recent (within a week) negative dealer diagnostics...it overheated. Well...it overheated within 2 minutes of hard...


Hold the dealer accountable, for starters! It could be the thermostat, a coolant leak, a severe engine problem, who knows? You shouldn't have to concern yourself with diagnosing and fixing a car you bought yesterday, unless you bought it as-is.

2007 Pacifica overheated. Outside Temp only 80. Doesnt appear that front fans are working and coolant level in resevior get higher.


Turn on the AC--it should start the radiator fans immediately. If nothing, check the fuse for the fans. The relay for the fans is a solid state device that is controlled directly by engine computer. The computer reads the coolant temperature sensor which tells the computer when to turn on the fans for usual cooling. Try to turn each fan manually (engine cool) and check for bad bearings, or fan blades--both fans should spin freely without any noise. If the fans come on with AC, then replace the temperature sensor which should be located near the attachment area of the upper radiator hose on the engine. It will have a single wire attached, and look like a small brass plug with threads. Watch the engine temperature for a while after the repair as the overheating may have damaged the thermostat element. Hope this helps!

Overheating


Is the fan now working? Your engine will continue to overheat if you have not fixed the fan. Check the fuse for the fan, connectors, and replace the fan if necessary.

At first the ac stopped cooling. then the car overheated with the ac off. there appears to be no loss of radiator coolant


Turn your engine on with the A/C on high. Watch your cooling fans mounted behind the radiator to make sure they are running. If they're not running, you have something wrong in the electrical side of the fan system. The cooling fans are essential for cooling as they pull air through the radiator when the vehicle is not moving fast enough to cool the coolant. The problem probably lies in a relay, so replace the high speed fan relay with one you know works but is not essential for moment (rear window defrost or something similar) and put that in the relay spot for the high speed fans. If the fans kick on now, you need to replace your relay and this will probably also fix your overheating.

Cooling Fan Not Working


FIRST THING TO DO IS DISCONNECT THE FANS SENSOR ON THE ENGINE, THIS WILL THROW THE FAN INTO DEFAULT AND IT SHOULD COME ON, IF IT DOESN'T EITHER THE FAN MOTOR IS DEFECTIVE OR THE RELAY IS DEFECTIVE, OR BOTH, A SHORTED MOTOR WILL FRY A RELAY. DOES IT COME ON WITH THE AC TURNED ON?
