Cooling Fans I changed the sensor thinking that it would make my cooling fans work I also checked the relay and my cooling fans still does not work when my Aztek idles for just a few minutes the temp will start rising. I went to AutoZone to get a repair manual, but they do not carry them and can not get one does anyone know where I can find an online repair manual so I can see the wiring diagram or does anyone else have this problem?


Hello dc8jimmy...did you check the voltage to the fans? The Aztek is a known overheater...Run a diagnostic scan to see if you have a cooling fan relay circuit open short. Will be easier to correct the problem when you know where to look. I think Hay ... 2001 Pontiac Aztek

95 chevy caprice classic 5.7 engine jus installing the new distributior cap i got stuck when i seen the screws are too small i dont have the socket its smaller then 5/32 does any one know the size?... Also my fans are not turning on twhen they are suppose too they only turn on when i start the car up i put a new switch on the water pump and checked this pre cool relay under the hood is there another relay or fuse i need to change? the fans do work, but the car over heats when they dont turn on


I believe the socket size is 3/16 or 1/4. Most of the time you can use a multitip screw driver without the tip installed. This is not a true 1/4 socket size but works for most bolts like this. As far as the overheating issue there is a fan relay alon ... 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic

Have a 1994 Acura Ledgend. Had no heat. Replaced thermostat and purged system and now have heat but car wants to overheat. When changing the thermostat we notice the guts had been pulled out of the old one by car dealer (we assume)and was basically only used to hold seal in place. The fans won't kick on but don't know how to check to see if it the fans or the switch. Don't knw where the switch is located. Can you give some suggestions?

My 2002 Volkswagen GTI has been overheating. It almost hit 290 every time. But it only does that when im driving. Theres also steam coming from the bottom of the reserve. I notice my auxiliary pump is leaking pretty bad. I also noticed, when i used to turn the car off one of the fans would kick on. It stopped doing that. Could the auxiliary cause this? Im going to try to change the thermostat this weekend and see if thats the problem. Anybody know what might be causing this?


Well when the vehicle overheat the thermostat changes in character so it no longer is a thermostat but a plug so now you got to change thermostat. Let me give you really bad news you see the water pump has a plastic propellor (VW does this to save m ... Volkswagen GTI

How many oxygen sensors on a 2000 Daewoo Lanos LX? I found one at the base of the exhaust manifold where the muffler bends towards the catalytic converter. Is there another one? I keep seeing things that say 2 wire, or 4-wire, front, back, passenger, driver side...kinda pathetic. Anyway, the one I found is a four wire (heated) O2 sensor. I did a quick look and did not see another one. How do I know for sure if there is a second O2 sensor? If there is a second one, where is it? Thanks!


Is this a 6 cylinder or 4 cylinder if its 6 cy you should have 4 o2sensor 2 before both cats 2 after both cats and if a 4 cylinder there is 2 o2sensor 1 before cat and 1 after cat hopes this helps you ... 2000 Daewoo Lanos

Best Buy would be preferred! They may be lucky enough to remove the problem while still in the car but they just might have to pull the player as well to take the top cover off and unjam it that direction. The dealer would be less helpful. ... 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe

I have a 2003 Chevrolet Suburban with automatic dual vent A/C-Heater control where the vent actuator does not appear to be working to direct air from one vent to another or from defrost to floor. The fan is blowing but the vent door does not change the air flow from one vent to another. Where is the vent door actuator located and how do I replace? Do you have a diagram or instructions?

I Just change the head gaskets on my pontiac grand am (1996, 3.1L 6Cyl)and at the time i was pouring the coolant it started to leak it. Ichecked it and found tha the freeze plug was the cause of the leak! it is the one on the back near the dash! I dont know how to get to it i can stick my hand and feel it! but I cant see it!some body knows how to change it? or an easy way to get to it!!! thanx!


The best remedy I can formulate is one that entails using a rubber freeze plug. These are the same diameter as the original. You slip it in the hole (with old plug removed) and tighten the bolt on it. These are good enough for a permanent repair. ... 1996 Pontiac Grand Am

I have a 91 subaru loyale. I replaced the fuel pump on the bottom in front of the passenger rear tire. And the in-line filter under the hood in front of the drivers side fire wall. New spark plugs as well. It will start n run for a while then it sputters down n picks back up on and off. I have another filter but I don't know where to put it. I don't see one under the car but no brackets for under the hood. Is there another one or is it sumthing else?

This may work for you, I'm not sure about your fans, but in a 1992 Ford Ranger when I kept overheating in idle or after turning off it was the heater core, you may want to try bypassing core and you should be fine, of course this is a band-aid fix. Y ... 1995 Honda Accord

I have a '97 Dodge Intrepid with an overheating problem. I had to change the water pump and intake manifold gasket because it was losing water, that seems to be ok. Now I have only one cooling fan working with the A/C on. The primary fan does not come on at all. I jumped the motor and know that the motor works, I also replaced both cooling fan relays. but still cannot get the primary fan to come on.


Hi!!\015\012\015\012have you replaced the coolant temp. sensor?? If so, check the wiring to it. \015\012\015\012Also, I have an Intrepid 99 myself, the cooling fan comes on when the gauge gets to almost half way, not before. ... Dodge Intrepid

Heater only blows cold air in my Dodge stratus 2.4 but air conditioner works. I plan to change my thermostate going to my motor. I hope there's only one to change, and not another for the heater itself. Water pump was changed, but I don't know it the thermostate was changed out then, and my radiator fluid is getting to look more like water now, and not at all like anit-freeze.


Put your gloved hand on the radiator in the front of your car - if it is hot - then the water in your heater core will be hot. If it is hot in the radiator - and not in the heater core - make sure your water level is up to the top in the radiator its ... 2000 Dodge Stratus
