Radiator fan gets stuck sometimes?

This maybe a sign of a failing coolant fan switch. As you may know the coolant fan switch helps to maintain the proper coolant temperature by turning on and off at specific temperature thresholds. When this switch is not working properly, this can cause the fans to come on intermittently, all the time or sometimes not at all. When this happens you will notice a temperature spike and drop occasionally as the fan comes on and off. To avoid any unnecessary repairs, I would suggest having an expert from YourMechanic come to your home to diagnose your cooling system.
