Tapping black box to shut off fan under bonnet


it sounds like sensor or relay is bad. should replace it. if it fails completly the fan may not come on at all,which would then cause the car to over heat and could cause head to crack.

I have a 86 camaro 2.8L run good till it gets warm then die's won't start again till it cools. getting fuel and spark.


I have a 1985 Camaro and if the switch for the fan is off then it overheats. There is a fan that can be installed. My switch is on the left of my steering wheel. Tune up is always good. Have your alternator checked, if it's old can be a problem maybe. New spark plugs can't go wrong. Good Luck!!!

How does the fan operates, does it starts and stop. Car shuts down, red light come near milage guage, have to let car cool down and start again. Can fan cause this problem? Pontiac Gran Am 1998.


the cooling fan should come on about 105-107C and shut off about 95-97C
does the car overheat just sitting running not moving
but if the car overheats on the highway then it's not the fan
check the fan operation run the car till the gauge is over half and watch the fan
if the fan woks then check coolant level if that's ok then try a thermostat
hope

Cooling fans do not run normally or in AC mode on 2003 VW GTI VR6


Check cooling fans not faulty - run freely.
Check the operation of the cooling fan control relay.
Replace relay, and observe if this fixes the problem.
