Should My Car Have A Mechanical Fan As Well As A Electric Fan On A FWD EA82?

Only if it has AC - which was common with EA82's. It's there primarily to cool the AC compressor.

My JDM EA71 (1600) came with a clutch fan on the water pump. My wagon was already rigged with an electric fan (real common) on the passenger side of the radiator. Helped big with cooling, but I took the clutch fan off and I got a buttload of hill climbing low end torque. If the thermo switch turns the fan on when it should, cool. If it don't, the mechanical fan is handy, but, replace the thermo switch so you can place the power your right foot demands to the pavement.
