SOURCE: radiator fans dont run????
I believe that the problem you are encoutering is a bad SSR (solid state relay). This device is wired in series with the fans and causes them to run at various speeds depending on engine needs. It is quite common that these devices fail. I would look at trying to get a new one...not sure of the cost but very easy to replace yourself.

When the radiator fans stop working. It is usually the temperature control sensor, the wiring to it or the fans. It could also be a relay or fuse. but thats low on the list. The TCS is located by the thermostat on the intake. It has to actually touch the coolant,it has a small plug and is threaded into the metal.it is made out of brass.
Never drive your car hot it could lead to more trouble. The sensors, the hoses, head gaskets , many thing could happen.

SOURCE: 1991 camaro rs overheating
Flushing the cooling system has its drawbacks. I you needed one freeze plug, you can reasonably suspect the others are surely right close to failure.In this case, starting to fail one at a rime weakest first. Now, as far as the other issues are concerned. What is the question? Sounds like the tazmanian devil had too much time on hand. I don't know the qualifications or integrity of your mechanic, but I do know a reputable, as well asa professional mechanic is not likely to intentionally or even bother to, contribute to these describe issues. Ocassional blue smoke is an internal problem, The AC is an issue in itself, The caalyctic converter is an issue that is too messy, smrlly thing to deal with. Any evisence of how and of what it was gutted? What was repaired or listed as repaired on your invoice? And what state are you in? It appears you may be seeking legal advice and in this forum it would not be an appropriate place to seek it. You may want to refer this to an Attorney for assistance.. Good luck and I hope you reach some resolve on this matter.

Well if you found it, you should be able to replace it, some of these big fuses "bolt in" down on the sides. If it blew, you better find out why (usually the motor is bad) before you replace it.
