I was traveling on interstate when my car started running real hot. I pulled over and found out that my radiator fan had stopped running. Is there a fuse for that the are is it one option replace the fan?
My car has 14800 miles.
Yes, the fan is fused but at highway speeds, engine cooling is effected by high speed air flow over the radiator and the fans are usually not relevant. The fans come into play in stop and go traffic primarily. So, if you are overheating at expressway speeds, there is probably another cause. Examples of such causes include include low coolant level, a faulty thermostat, a plugged radiator, a faulty radiator pressure cap, collapsed hoses, and a faulty water pump or drive belt. Certain engine faults, such as a leaking head gasket, poor engine running condition, and exhaust blockages can also cause overheating.
