No cooling fan- FACTORY EQIUPPED!!??
Posted 03 September 2003 - 08:34 PM
Got a fan ready to go, went to put it in, and lo and behold the car seems to never have been equipped with a fan at all. The mounting nuts were still factory installed, and they were holding a metal plate that covered the end of the water pump pulley. The mounting holes for the fan shroud also appeared to never have been used.
WTH!!?? :cornfuzz: :cornfuzz:
Seems this car was never equipped with a main cooling fan!! WHY!!? HOW!!??
Anyone ever heard of this? Seems like a really dumb thing to do! A stripped down model should still have a complete cooling system!

The electric fan that's on the passenger side of the radiator is the main fan. If it's not keeping things under control then there is some other problem with the cooling system.

Why should you need a manual fan on the water pump. It just saps extra power.
I know guys with jeeps who take off the manual fan and use only electric with a switch so you can turn it off to forde deep water with out splashing it up into the air filter

Oh, and both my Nissans that I had were transverse engines- and they each had TWO electric fans.
