2000 pontiac grand am se v6 3.4 ltr My car keeps getting extremely hot, it has over heated in the past but since I've done all this work I shut it off before it gets that bad.

My Voyager is overheating, Ive flushed the radiator,changed the thermostat,radiator cap & temp.sending unit. The fan works properly but Ive replaced the relay that runs the fan,A/C,& temp. sending unit twice already. So as of right now I have the cooling fan bypassed to where its always on when I'm driving. But where im stuck is when it starts getting hot It will start to cool down when I drive very fast between stoplights,or when I turn on the heater.What else could be causing it to over heat?

Cooling fans do not work.Replaced relay. Turn ac on and one fan worked until i connected the other fan to it to see if the motor of that fan was bad or not,now neither of the fans will run. I replaced the relay again and none of the fans will run. Before aything was done i could turn the ac on and one fan would run.

I have a 2002 Chevy Impala. The cooling fans only turn on when the ac is on. I replaced the thermostat and the coolant sensor. I also bled the system and they still wont come on. The hand only goes to the middle of the gauge but the radiator gets to hot and kicks out antifreeze. What else could be done to get the cooling fans to turn on?

Cooling fan not comming on when AC is turned on. Cooling fan works normally otherwise. I'm thinking FAN RELAY so I check all my fuses, all good. I can't find a book on a 2008, the 2001-2003 I did find, was no help at all. I saw the two relays mounted near the fan shroud, so I decide to unplug both relays and flip flop them. If fan comes on with AC, I buy a new RELAY. I can't get both hands to reach relays, so now I can't get them unplugged even with the little latch pushed in. So, I swallow my p

Toyota Ipsum/Picnic, 1997, 2L, 3S-FE. Radiator cooling fan stays on all the time. 2nd cooling fan for air con. also was staying on, but has since stopped working. Problem is probably there since I bought the car but not noticed 'cause I thought the a.c. compressor sound was the fan coming on. Kieran.


Hi There,The problem for the fans may or may not be related. For the radiator fan, the signal to turn it off comes from the temperature sensor at the lower radiator hose. You should see wires going to a plug which is the sensor itself. ... Toyota Previa

My 1998 buick regal non turbo 3800 radiator cooling fans will not work when the car gets to operating temp. The fan motors will work whtn the AC is on. I think it could be the temp sensor that turns on the radiator fan. Where is that located?

Overheating I have replaced engine coolant sensor and relay and the engine electric fan does not come on. I connected the fan direct and it turns on. What else can I check? I have a '93 formula firebird (LT1) Both my fans check out. Electrically everything seems sound. I just changed the thermostat and still does not work. The engine block however is hot and the return hose to the radiator is cold, so my thinking is the cooling pump has failed. My only worry/question is what turns on the primary


Thermostat is not opening, or is installed backwards is why the hose stays cold. Make sure the nugget is facing the engine block. If this is correct, make sure the belt is installed correctly and is rotating the water pump in the right direction. ... 1999 Pontiac Firebird

The cooling fan is not working this is the second fan I have fitted in the car. I think water gets in to the motor of the fan. It is in a stupit place and it costs a lot of money to replace. When it is working when you stop the car it wont stop

I have a 2004 Kia Sedona. The engine cooling fan (not condensor fan) will not turn on and the van overheats when idling. I've replaced the fan thinking that the motor had burned out, but the new one doesn't work either. I've checked the fuses and relays and they are all okay. I have been researching and think it may be the temperature sensor or temp sensor relay. What are your thoughts?


Take a look at this...it order to get the cooling fan to turn on you need good power through the low cooling fan relay, which you siad i ... Kia Sedona

09 Pontiac g5 over heats while sitting at idle cooling fans not working they come on with the ac which is normal and after you turn the ac off they will stay on until engine cools back down and they shut off again which once again is normal operation. But when the engine temp starts to climb back over 196* they will not come back on until you turn the ac back on. I have moved the relays around to see if maybe a faulty relay is to blame but nada. Next step i would think is test the Ect sensor. Ho

My 2001 chevy cavalier was serviced last year for over heating and the a/c unit not blowing cool air. It has a new radiator but the fan has stopped turning and the a/c blows hot only. Ive tried re-charging the unit it seemed to be full or clogged it blew cold for a couple days now back to hot again. Ive had a new coolant reservoir air filter put in and a new head gasket and thermostate put in not to long ago could I have blown something out again by the fan not working


Might just be a bad engine coolant temp sensor , it tells car computer engine temperature and computer controls fans , as for recharging a/c , did you pull system under vacuum ? to check for leaks ? vacuum also helps remove air to get a better charge ... Cars & Trucks

... 1994 Audi 100

My question concerns the electric cooling fan attached to the radiator: Should this fan come on automatically with the A/C compressor? After having some work done on the A/C, the fan comes on with the compressor, even when the engine is cold. It goes off with the A/C compressor also. My thinking is that the fan should be thermostat controlled, coming on when needed.
