Overheating problem, what is the most probable cause?

You need to stop using it immediately before you
cause some damage or more than you may already have
That is just common sense. It should not overheat or
be any different than it was in the past without problem

The car has to be checked over/diagnosed,tested,etc for
various issues to resolve

Borrow or Rent a car until resolved

No way to guess at the problem

You should have some type of codes avail even
if the check light isn't on,you need professional help
to get a start on resolving

The timing belt maybe worn & jumped or the head gasket

Over heating isn't usually a cheap repair unless the thermostat
sticks partially closed

The RPM moves around the car is 11 years old,so it may just
need a though going over

Timing Belt,O2 Sensors,Exhaust Converter,Spark Plugs
and such

If you depend on a repair shop to do things & don't
have the knowledge to request work done throughout
the year,then you run into a lack of proactive preventative
maintenance situation. Most things are simple looking
back, once resolved

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.

03 pt cruiser turbo - cooling fan is noisy.

Most electric cooling fans are noisy. They move large volumes of air to cool the engine. You will hear this noise most predominately when the fan spools up when you are stopped at a traffic light. As long as it is working and cooling the engine I wouldn't worry about it.

The ac stills runs when the engine is off?

I suspect that what you hear is the fan of the AC/Heat system still running when the engine stops and you have not returned the key to it's off position. The AC runs off of the engine, driven by a serpentine belt and it cannot run unless you are referirng to what is called the "Diesel Effect" That is where the engine will still turn over a few times after the key is removed due to using improper fuel. The car calls for High Test and if you use Low Test for extended periods of times, carbon builds up in the cylinders and glows after the key is removed and tries to combust the fuel left in the system.

My husband just brought home an '89 jag xjs v12 and its overheated plus no fan turned on ?

what a lovely car real leather seats ,quiet engine state of the art for its time .Now for any jag to work properly you must first clean it ,treat the seats with a special cream every 3 mths ,then it will run forever but it does like being under cover in the garage with a sheet over it when not used ,do not bring it out when its raining either as it gets wet ,Now as for the overheating that should be no more than a thermo switch in the radiator which is cheap to buy ,about 10/12 euros ,make sure its filled with antifreeze or the heads will corrode in the water jackets .shouldnt have overheated whilst moving though even with no fan unless he was in heavy traffic with the AC on but even then the fan one of the two fans should run when AC is on.But on these vehicles mine is a 94 the AC fan doesnt come on whilst vehicle is moving only when the temperature in the front AC rad rises will fan come on ,Most off all enjoy this vehicle as its princess amongst cars and is a good investment for the future ,Also put you watch in the boot whilst driving as the ticking of the watch will drive you mad as its the only noise you hear whilst friving

My 1997 Honda Accord 4cyl. condenser fan began to run continuously (even after engine was shut off) after cycling the A/C temp. selector from hot to cold. I disconnect the condenser fan to avoid draining...

Sounds like the AC relay/switch is sticking on sometimes. Locate and swap this relay. Look at your fuse box lids for location or search online for the exact location. You also might have a leak in the ac lines or the AC condenser clutch is not engaging to kick the ac on. You should feel a slight power loss or hear a slight stutter in the engine when pressing your AC switch. This means everything kicked on. It's a millisecond before the ECU realizes this and kicks up the idle to compensate.

Check engine light: Turn the key on three times in succession and wait for the codes. What are the codes?
Brake ABS light: When did you last have the brakes serviced?
No AC: Do you park your truck/car in a garage? Check the AC housing for leaves and debis which will burn out the AC fan motor.
