How do I know if my radiator fan is bad?
These are the most common signs of a faulty radiator fan assembly in need of replacement:
- Engine Overheating. When the radiator fan isn’t functioning properly, it is not able to adequately cool down the car’s engine.
- Air Conditioner Function Diminished.
- Loud Noise Coming From Radiator Fan.
Why does my car engine fan keep coming on?
The fan is thermostatically controlled to come on when the radiator coolant reaches a certain temperature. You car’s cooling system is probably compromised – either low coolant (due to leaks) or a thermostat problem or radiator issue.
Can I drive with one cooling fan?
Yes, technically your engine does not need a cooling fan to operate. If the radiator does not have cool air blowing on it constantly, it will overheat eventually, so you’d need the perfect combination of weather and traffic to drive effectively without a radiator fan.
When to turn off the radiator fan in Acura TL?
It does not close the circuit to ground until the coolant reaches about 225 deg. F. This is the switch that will keep the cooling fan running after the engine has been turned off if the engine is really hot. A cool way to add a tachometer is to swap in a gauge cluster from a 1996 Acura TL.
Why is my Acura 3.2 TL not blowing air?
I have a 1999 Acura 3.2 TL and while driving the a/c quit working. the blower will not come on and neither does the compressor. I have taken out the blower resistor and all the wires look good, nothing looks fried and I have pulled the blower motor and jumped it straight to the battery and it runs fine.
Why is no air coming out of my Acura radiator?
I tried the following: 1. I change the temperature to 90 degrees but no air comes out. 2. I check the fuses on the panel under the dashboard next to the door and the fuses seem to be alright, according to the people at Acura the Radiator the Blower and the A/C Compressor are all on the same circuit so the other three would have gone as well.
