My 1993 Buick Century is over heating. The fan stops working. If I lift the hood and spin the fan it will work again. Can it be a short?

I have a 2002 Buick Century which overheats when the car is not moving. I found out the cooling fans do not work with or without the AC on. I checked the 15 amy fuse listed for the fans and it was blown. I...

A blown fuse usually results from a circiut overload or short. First check wiring from fans for any breaks, rips or tears in wiring. Next with the engine off and cooled down, see if the fans will spin freely if you spin it. If they don't spin then they have siezed and the circuit is getting too hot. If they do spin then it is likely you have a short in the wiring.

1998 buick century over heats when stopped at intersections. Fluids are ok and fans are on.

Have your radiator flow tested...this time of year, many "marginal" radiators begin to show those symptoms.

No air in side vents

Sounds like the vaccuum controls that direct the flow of air from your heat/ac fan might be out. There are small one-way valves that control these functions. they're cheap $1-$5 dollars. These keep the vents working properly. CHeck under the hood near the firewall, look for small little black plastic lines. These lines are joined at places with a small disc shaped device maybe 1/2 thick. These are the valves that might be problematic. Pull one out and see if you can blow air though it. also try to **** air through it. If you can do both, than the part is bad and needs to be replaces.
