Q: Car overheating due to nonworking fan

asked by on

My car overheats when I am coming home from work. The engine fan is not turning.

A: The fan on your vehicle is an electric fan....

The fan on your vehicle is an electric fan. It comes on as needed to help cool the radiator when the coolant reaches a pre-determined temperature. This is usually around 220 degrees. Fan motor failure is common and not a very complicated repair usually. A mechanic can make sure the fan is getting the proper signals to come on and ensure that it is in fact the reason why the motor is overheating.
