k my car is getting really really hot! like hitting the white line at the end.

today i got out when it hit the line and checked the fan, it wasnt on at all. i turned on the ac and the fan came on. the upper rad hose was firm and hot ( i think thats normal )

anyone got any ideas?

u ever change your themostat? might be stuck open? fan motor might be sized. I would try giving direct power to the fan to even see if its working.

well if the a/c turns on the fan you knows its good right. i believe on these cars theres only two sensors that control the fan.theres the sensor mounted right about the thermo housing,and i dont know the other one.so my guess theres a sensor dead.

ill try to get a pic on here soon, i can tell you ,you know the two black pipe next to the dizzy..the one on top has a sensor,thats the cooling temp sensor that turns the fan on and off..when mine was going out,it stayed on,I was told if it is completely dead the fan wont come on at all at normal temps
