Re: 1992 Nissan Pulsar N14

Thermostat is usually at the motor end of the top radiator hose.. under a cap usually held down with 3 bolts (working off memory, its been a while) sounds like you have a short somewhere, look around engine bay for black, burnt, or broken wiring; failing that take dash apart and the gauges out and check the wiring behind there.. and fuses (obviously)

Why wont my 1990 cadillac sadan de ville radiator cooling fans come on

You likely have a bad coolant temperature sensor, any local auto parts dealer can tell you where it is located. I would try to run 12 volts directly to the fan and see if the fan turns,.. basically jump the fan with a 12 volt circuit. you can take a wire from the positive battery terminal and another wire from the negative battery terminal and connect them to the fan and see if the fan rotates. If you know the fan is working then your problem is definitely the coolant temperature sensor in my opinion. Usually coolant temperature sensors are located in the radiator or near the water pump. You should be able to trace the wires from the fan to the different locations where a sensor might be.. hope this helps.

Hello I just purchased 10x of cf-602 hdd cooler. I wanted to buy Digitus hdd cooler (both are with 2x 6 cm fans) but my seller told me that there was no difference between the 2 products. I'd like to...

Bottom line is there shouldnt be any differance performance wise, those 6cm fans can only move so much air. Any airflow at all will help lower the hdd temperature.

Hi. I have a HP laptop for about 3 months and now it gives me the message " a cooling factor is not working properly" , and it shuts down 15 minutes later. what should I do? Should I go to the...

The laptop should be covered since it is only three months old. That's the good news. The less than good news, is that you may have to wait a while before you get your computer back.

I don't have the laptop in front of me, so naturally I can't diagnose the problem directly.
I would hazard an intelligent guess that the Cooling Fan inside the laptop has failed.

Components inside a computer are normally cooled by air. (High tech gamer computers may use a different type of cooling system. They may use water, or a refrigerant of some sort. { Dry Ice, Nitrogen, Freon, etc)

Two main computer components generate the most heat.
The Processor, and the graphics chipset. (Video chip, Same/same)

The Processor is the 'Brain' of the computer. It's designed to operate up to a maximum temperature, (Thermal Limit), and no higher, or damage to the Processor will result.

There is a Fail Safe feature built-in to turn the Processor off, if it becomes too hot.
(BIOS turns the Processor off)

With no cooling fan operating the Processor will overheat.

You didn't indicate what model name, and model number your HP laptop is.
This is to just show you what an average cooling fan looks like in an HP laptop,
(HP DV6 series ), and what is entailed in order to access it,

Scrolling down to Step 24, and 25 shows the top view of the cooling fan.
Step 29 shows the bottom view.

Would appreciate hearing the outcome, please reply in a Comment.

Latitude e6500 runs hot how do i boost the fan

You may need to clean the fan and heatsink of dust. See the dust restricts the cool air from reaching the heatsink and this in turn causes your fan to spin faster. The computer's BIOS is programmed to increase CPU fan speed as CPU tempreature increases. If your fan is very loud, then it is running at the maximum speed possible. A clean heatsink will decrease the Processor's temperature.

Installing additional fans in your computer's chassis is an effective way of bringing the temperatures down. Install the biggest fans that your chassis supports. 120mm fans are better than 80mm fans as they can spin at slower speeds to provide the same airflow of a smaller fan. Therefore giving you a quiet computer.

Use a program called Speed Fan to ensure that your fans are indeed running at the desirable level of 100%

Take care!

My light on the temperture gauge is flashing does anyone know why? its a ford galaxy

the red light flashing on the temp gauge means that there is no coolant in the expansion tank.
look behind the battery (slightly above) and you will see a bottle.
With the engine cold open the cap on the bottle slowly and release the pressure inside.
Check to make sure that the coolant inside the tank is between the min and max line.
if coolant isnt there you need to fill it with a mixture of water and coolant(coolant purchased at any garage) as directed on the bottle.
Keep an eye on the level of coolant in the bottle for a few days if it falls below min or dissapears it could indicate a leak.
I had a small leak in my 98 2.3 ghia x galaxy and fixed it by buying a bottle of rad weld, poured the liquid rad weld into the coolant bottle, and it worked a treat plus it stops the inside of the radiator rusting and rotting away.

Hope this helps :-)

Our IBM Server Mt -M 8482 - 1SG Series 206 The fan has stopped after being very noisy and the server turns itself off after a while. I believe that I need a new fan.

I think that you are correct in your diagnosis.
I would look for a good fan that has ball bearings for your application.
You will need to measure the fan and get the correct size: i.e. 3” or 4” square.
If you can try to locate your CFM (Cubic Feet Per Minute) on the fan that you have and purchase one that is equal to or better. That will allow more cooling on your system.
I know that you can get these from any computer vendor, but shop around. Don’t just look for the best price; you get what you pay for.
I use an online source of for most of my computer needs.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Socket 478 3 GHz Intel CPU overheating

Simply open/unlock the clips and pull the heatsink off. Then you will need to remove the termal compound from both on top of the CPU and from the bottom of the heatsink. Papertowel + rubbing alcohol works well. Then you will need to re-apply thermal compound before reseating the heatsink/fan.

It could be any of two problems. First did you check to see if you have gas going to the injectors, and second did you check for spark at your plugs. After you have done this get back to me and i will advise.
