Q: Q: Rpm problem

asked by on

Ok I just had my radiator fans changed and now when I drive the RPM climbs so high even though I'm only going 40 mph..... Before it would change gears and now rise so high. Now it's just way too high and I hear like a vacuum noise.... What do I do now !?

Hi Ritchie. Thanks for contacting us today. The first thing you need to do is isolate the source of the RPM increase. It is possible that a vacuum hose was not correctly attached during the service, so I would recommend having a professional mechanic come to your location to complete an RPM inspection. Once they complete the inspection, they’ll be able to let you know what repairs are needed.

Q: When I turn on my AC the radiator fans do not turn on. The fans do come on when the car warms up so I know they are working and the fuses are good. The AC compressor does come on and the air blows ice cold when the car is moving. Car is a 2006 Chrysler Sebring Sedan 2.7l v6.

The control circuit for the fans needs to be checked. For example, there is usually a condenser fan relay in the A/C electrical controls. There could be a fault with that relay and/or wiring problems, perhaps even just a loose...
