Engine fan on all the time?

I have a thermostat problem, but I've noticed that the engine fan runs all the time that the engine is on. Is the coupler/thermostat shot in that too? (95 path)

Re: Engine fan on all the time?

If your fan is still spinning at least you know the Fan clutch is still good and your not overheating, but it sounds to me like possibly your air temperature sensor could be toast. A quick way to test th sensor is to hook up an ohmmeter to the sensors leads, then blow warm air on it using a hair dryer. If the resistance reading drops, the sensor is probably OK. But, if there’s no change in the reading or if you get an open (infinite) or short (zero ohms) reading, the sensor is cooked!If your fan is still spinning at least you know the Fan clutch is still good and your not overheating..

Re: Engine fan on all the time?

Whoa back that Answer up.
The problem w/ the fan might not be all electricial related. I had the same problem of the fan running all the time and it was the fan clutch. The clutch wore out and made it where it never "slipped" and ran all the time. Defintely, check that solution out. For me I just got a used one from the junkyard for $5.

Re: Engine fan on all the time?

if your fan clutch is worn out do not buy a Napa! My truck will eat one every six months. Buy Nissan they work much better
