Mine started do this recently as well. I think my belts need replacing. I believe this is what needs to be changed in order for the fan to stop over working.

At witch point on my temperature gauge should the radiator fan turn on cause right now the needle on the gauge goes almost to the red when fan switches on The car is a 98 Ford contour gl


The fan should turn on at no more than the width of the needle past normal. It should be running just about all the time after normal operating temperature is reached.

My 2007 chevy uplander's cooling fan kicks on the moment I start the engine, stops when I turn off the engine, temp gauge reads normal, check engine light is not on, thermostat is ok, flushed radiator,...


Hi Bajil, Have a diagnostic scan carried out and have the coolant temperature sensor and relay inspected for correct operation. It sounds as if a cable has become disconnected or that the operating circuit has become defective. The cooling circuit operation is correct when the fan operates when the engine temperature raises a fraction above normal. The fan will run for a number of seconds and then switch off, thereby maintaining the 'normal' operating temperature. Regards John

Fan not cutting on


Fan switch has a replacement and wire from dealer Had replaced fan but did not fix it. Fan belt broke and car overheated. Stopped as temp went out of normal. This was enough for temp switch to stop working. Fan never ran again until new sensor and wire connector were installed. This was on a 1999 SC2 a Saturn mechanic told us this was a common concern.

Thermo valve broken, does this cause over heating?


if you mean "thermostat" valve .. then that can fail either open or closed . if it fails open then the engine will not reach normal operating temperatures .. if it fails closed then yes the engine will overheat .. another common failure is the radiator fan .. it only runs when the car is not moving .. as long as the car is moving then cooling air is available so the fan is not needed ... so if your car does not overheat when driven but overheats when stopped or idling then suspect the radiator fan or thermal switch (mounted on the radiator) .. that switch turns on the fan when the radiator gets so hot ... you can just listen for the fan when hot .. you should hear it .. .. if your car gets too hot while driving then suspect a bad thermostat or clogged radiator .. sometimes a bad water pump (broken implellers) will cause the trouble ..

On a 1997 nissan sentra will the radiator fan run all the time the car is running


No, it should only turn on when the temperature switch tells it to. On a hot day you may hear it running even after shutting off the engine. The fan is set up so that when you are moving at enough speed the fan shuts off to save energy, when you slow down or stop the fan should come on to maintain airflow. If you check it at this point yes it should be running. When you start it cold the fan will not turn on for maybe 10 or more seconds when the engine starts to warm up. Hope this helps.

Things to be concered about; 1.) the fan never seems to turn on. This will cause your engine to overheat when you stop.
2.) Your heat is not working. The heat going away can be a sign that you antifreeze is low and that you are about to overheat.

Cooling fan direction??


Yes, Massive air flow from the first fan is causing air to be brought in from not only the front of the radiator but from the fan right next to it causing reverse air flow through the fan. This intern can cause less dirrect airflow through the radiator. Also, the recirculation of hot air (from the first fan) into the second fan, across the radiator and back to the first fan can cause the vehicle to run hotter. Wile the car is moving there is enough air pressure from the outside of the vehicle to flow directly through the radiator with little fan assistance needed. If you have the engine running and and turn on the a/c, you should hear the fan change speed or even see the second one turn on (If the fan is working), there is no delay. You might have a bad relay and good fan, as there is a separate relay that activates this same fan for the a/c.

Blower fan just stopped on my 1998 jeep cherokee


Fan relay is a good one for that and where I would start. Usually the cheapest to. But the next thing could be the fan switch.

As far as I know, this is normal. When I get out of mine, I hear the fan run for about a minute after I shut the car off.
