Having problems with your 1992 Toyota Camry V6 ?

I have a 1992 Toyota Camry. New radiator, but it overheated one day and I was told that I had "cracked my heads". I stopped driving it for a few days and one day drove it around for about five miles, and not once did it overheat. There is no "white smoke" from the tailpipe, no leakage. However, I've noticed that the cooling fan is turning really slow. I know that a mechanic should know the difference between a cracked head and a cooling fan problem, but I'm desperate. Could it possibly be

Hello, I have a 2004 dodge stratus coupe. This car ahs never overheated but is losing antifreeze somewhere. I have a small overflow tank that I fill every 3 days just alittle, but if my car sits for a couple days it seems empty, although there is fluid in the radiator. i have noticed that the cooling fans do not kick on when the car reaches the temperature or even at idle?

Cooling fan on a 91 ford escort has a 3 wire molded plug. i know one wire is ignition 12 volts from the relay and one wire is system ground. what is the other for? to further explain, i salvaged this vehicle. to fix it i got a cooling fan from a later model which has a different molded plug. i am planning to eliminate the plugs and hard wire the fan. just need to know which wire is which, or how to find out being that i don't want to tear the car apart tracing wires.


If your car has the 1.9 motor and A/C then....the Light Green?Yellow wire is from the high speed fan relay, the Yellow wire is from the low speed fan relay and the Black wire is the ground. ... 1991 Ford Escort

In our 1995 Cadillac Deville we can't get the fans to come on to cool the radiator. There are four relay switches and we don't know if we have to replace all of them or is there just one and where is the one that cools the radiator. We have already replaced fuses and still radiator overheating. Now need to replace the module pcm or fan relay - but don't know which one or if all four have to be replaced.


The most common overheating problem with the Northstar engine is a blocked purge line. It's job is to purge air out of the cooling system.There is a small diameter hose coming from near the top of the coolant tank,this is the purge line.W ... 1995 Cadillac DeVille

2006 Nissan Sentra My problem started all of the sudden one day in the winter and now that its summer I cannot put it off. My heat, A/C, and defrost does not blow out of the vents. The fan works b/c I can hear it and when I change the settings I can hear it change. However no air comes out. I know the air is going somewhere (im thinking that I am heating and cooling the outside). My first thought is that there is something wrong in the duct work. How can I check this?


It's not the duct work . there is a problem with your vaccum lines running to the motor. what's happing is the vaccum line is not getting enough suction to make the flap change that's why you hear it but don't feel it. check the vaccum lines for the ... 2006 Nissan Sentra

Airconditioning system is temperamental. works perfect one day and then suddenly, no cooling at all, and even the fan doesnt work when this happens. Only warm air form the engine could be felt fom the vents. No real warning sign, but noticed that it only stops after switching off ignition or sometime after reversing the car! could this be fuse problem? if yes do you have the fuse diagram for this 1989 merc 420SEL model. Car is in great shape otherwise.


Hi, if i understand your posted question, it means the car a/c works intermittently meaning A/C system blows cold air for awhile then another time warm air.\015\012\015\012\015\012If that be the case, then an A/ ... Mercedes-Benz 420-Series

DIC displays "cooling fan fault". I know it could be the fan, but also i know it coudl be the wiring on the fan, and or the fuse that works it may be out...there fore im looking for the driagram to show which fuse is the correct one which needs to be replaced for the cooling fan.


I would use a 'fuse tester' that will light up if the ignition is on and the fuse is bad, while installed in the fuse block.\015\012\015\012Otherwise, you can individually pull out each fuse and look at each one physically to see if there ... 1989 Cadillac Seville

Water temperature is warmer than usual and cooling fan is very loud. Started car this morning and turned on the a/c. One cooling fan came on and sounded like it was about to take flight. Opened hood and noticed other fan was not running. Temperature was normal at the time. Am wondering if other fan could be bad or a bad sensor? Also yesterday, left car running in park for about 15 minutes. Temperature was past half on the gauge. Never seen it this high. Fan was running very loudly. Car cooled do

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?

My 97 Grand Prix is having radiator cooling fan problems. I know that one fan is to come on when it reaches a certain temperature and the other for when the a/c is turned on. I disconnected the fans and jumped them to the battery and both fans work. So I know it is not a fan problem or fuses. My question is, are the three relays under the hood prone to breaking or how do I go about figuring out what the problem is?


Could be temp senders,,,hook up scanner & watch temp out puts to see if they are working ... 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix

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.

I have a 1997 oldsmobile eighty-eight and the fan one day over the summer 2010 went off and on with the blower switched on. It caught my attention but kept my fingers crossed. Within a few days the fan stopped working all together. The blower is working powered directly from the battery and I have changed out the blower resistor. As a side note I notice after the blower stopped working that the vertical plastic dashboard covering the fan speed switch, immediately circumferentially adjacent the s

I need to know which fuse runs the cooling fan on the engine of a '96 Pontiac Bonneville SSE. I would love a diagram of the fuse box. I was adding an air compressor for the AC and when I finished the cooling fan had stopped working. I've tried, but am not able to tell which fuses are active and which ones aren't. Would love some advice.

Our 2002 Ford Explorer constantly beeps because the Door Ajar light is on and the vehicle thinks that a door is open. We've closed every door well and I've put WD40 in all the door latches including the one for the little rear hatch window. One possible reason this began is that someone bumped our explorer in the rear in a parking lot and we believe that caused a crack in the rear panel. From reading other Ford problems, that was probably going to crack on its own anyway. All I want to know


The switch will be in the door jam on the body and probably has a black rubber boot covering it. The switch may just need replacing. Once removed you will see the two wires attached to it. ... 2002 Ford Explorer
