  1. Ok I'm intrigued. I found a motor online and it's like 60 bucks. I'm thinking about having it shipped to where I'm working because I'll be here another 3 weeks.
  2. Both fans turn on with the ac. If a motor was bad I would assume they wouldn't turn on at all.
  3. You said both motors? I assumed there is only one motor. With the ac on the cooling fans come on but without them they do not. I have driven the car across PA 4 times but everytime it was cold outside so I had the heat on. I haven't changed the thermostat because with the temperature rising even if the thermostat failed the fans should kick on. I believe the only reason the car hasn't overheated is because the water pump and thermostat are doing their jobs. Having the fans working as they should would make things alot better though. But now I'm curious to know if there is more than one fan motor.
  4. I have owned the car for only 6 months so I don't know if their is air in the coolant. The oil was fine when it was changed 2k miles ago. I've had a blown head gasket before and there are some other indicators which this car does not show. And whether or not the radiator is bad or good I wouldn't think would have anything to do with fans not kicking on when the engine is hot without the ac. But then again I have never come across this so I don't know. The car does not overheat, but it does get hotter than I feel comfortable with.
  5. My car runs a bit hot all the time and it turns out my fans are not coming on if the A.C. is not on. I have changed the temp sensor, all 3 relays, and the coolant level is good and still no luck. Turn the A.C. on and bingo fans come on. But the kicker is with the fans on the whole time it still goes above the middle line pretty often. I bought the car last winter as a work car for PA. But now I may be working in another state soon and would like to take it with me but I am nervous to drive a long distance if its doing this stuff when driving 30 mins to an hour. Any ideas?
