My 2005 equinox cooling fans come on for a few seconds &shut off making engine over heat &OVERHEATING What is the problem?


Should be a relay somewhere in the engine compartment - may be failing. You may be able to switch with another relay to diagnose.
Check your owners manual under fuses and relays.

2007 CHEVY COBALT CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON AND THE FAN IS CONSTANTLY RUNNING


this is normal for most vehicles, it is because the water temp in radiator continues to rise after you shut the engine off. would not worry about it unless it dose not shut off at all. or never runs

Hello and welcome, it sounds like you need to replace your fan clutch. Your Jeep has 2 cooling fans 1 runs off the engine the other is electric. Before replacing the fan clutch you need to make sure the electric cooling fan is working just turn on your a/c and it should kick on. If it does then the problem is your fan clutch is it doesn't then your electric fan is most likely bad.

Maybe the cooling fan relay isn't switching the fan on or, maybe cooling fan is coming on but only on low speed? Is the cooling fan coming on at all ?

Instrument cluster - GM had problems with a part inside the cluster , Stepper motor , These faulty step motors caused the gauges to act erratically . 2003 to 2006 ! ALL GM vehicles . Just replaced a cavalier instrument cluster for what customer thought was a over heating problem .The fans come on low speed when engine temp. reaches 220 degress
The PCM commands the low speed cooling fans ON under the following conditions:
• Engine coolant temperature exceeds approximately 104.25°C (220°F).
• A/C refrigerant pressure exceeds 1447 kPa (210 psi).
• After the vehicle is shut OFF if the engine coolant temperature at key-off is greater than 101°C (214°F) the low speed fans will run for a minimum of 60 seconds After 60 seconds, if the coolant temperature drops below 101°C (214°F) the fans will shut OFF. The fans will automatically shut OFF after 3 min. regardless of coolant temperature.
The PCM commands the high speed fans ON under the following conditions:
• Engine coolant temperature exceeds approximately 107.2°C (225°F).
• A/C refrigerant pressure exceeds approximately 1824 kPa (265 psi).
• When certain DTCs set.
At idle and very low vehicle speeds the cooling fans are only allowed to increase in speed if required. This insures idle stability by preventing the fans from cycling between high and low speed.

My 2005 nissan frontier overheats while sitting still what is wrong with it?


Sounds like coolant isn't circulating. While moving engine making pump circulate coolant and fresh air hitting front of radiator. At idle or a stop, engine not making pump run as fast and there is no fresh air hiiting radiator ( especially if fan isn't working properly) Check out water pump and cooling fan.

2006 cobalt overheating while IDLE


go ahead and have the thermostat and the thermostate switch replace since its giving you a sign, you don't want to have it overheat and leave you stranded or ruin the motor. the fans seem to work fine since you can hear and see it running.

2005 Dodge 1500 Truck overheats when idling


chances are that it isnt your thermostat, check to see if your coolant fan is turning on when engine reaches operating temperature. if it does turn on then i would suggest to check for dust/dirt in between your rad and a/c condensor. if it is dirty in between clean it out with a garden hose and you should be good to go

Overheating


I am not an expert on Mazda vehicles but sounds like your fan temperature sensor is not working properly. My fan comes on low speed when the temp hits 205 and goes to high speed at 220 or when the air conditioning is on. You had better get it checked by your dealer or service tech.
