In general I know of no reason per se to replace the thermostat and\015\012temp sensor because you replaced the radiator fan. If the temp gauge\015\012seems to be staying in the 1/3-2/3 of full scale, and there is no\015\012apparent engine control issues as the engine warms from cold to\015\012operating temperature then there is no obvious reason to replace those\015\012items. Other than fan motor failure is there any reason for you to\015\012believe these other parts are at fault?You can get a free fault code\015\012readout at an Autozone parts store which would highlight a temp sensor\015\012problem, but there is no fault code for the thermostat except maybe the\015\012one for engine running cold for too long a time after start up. You\015\012could also check the resistance of the temp sensor which should run\015\012around 10-14,000 ohms when cold and drop to 700-1,000 ohms when warmed\015\012up.
\015\012I don't know about the issue of replacing the thermostat because I\015\012don't know which engine you are working with. So let me know an
