Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I put a replacement fan on my jeep and it is blowing out. I was told the fan should be pulling air in. If this is wrong, how do I get it to pull air in???

As your vehicle goes down the road, the airflow is through the grill and into the engine compartment- the cooling fans should enhance this and go with the flow- now, are you SURE this isn't what your fan is doing? if it is turning the wrong way, maybe switch the wires? idk- sounds weird to me-

Did you install an OEM part or an aftermarket UNIVERSAL type fan? Did you "wire" this yourself or is it the original connection plug

Thanks Mark.. I was just told that the fans was blowing air out the front of the Grill when it is on. I was told it should pull air in.. (Smiles) I'm not a mechanic type person; but sounded weird to me also... Tried switching wires but fan still blew the same way.. Just was checking if there is another way to reverse fan???

Mark; I installed an aftermarket UNIVERSAL type fan.

Mark; I installed an aftermarket UNIVERSAL type fan. Does this make a different?????

Yes, IT matters. If you can change the wiring see if it will rotate the opposite way? OR If its mounted correctly you have a problem unless you can "flip" the fan blade to draw through the radiator just a motor rotation change might not help I can't see the fan blade pitch it might be directional only. READ the instructions ( can be set up to rotate in either direction) that came with the fan kit.
