Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1995 grand prix se and the fans don't come on at all and the while idle, the temp hand goes redlined and while driving it almost redlines and then comes back down.  What should I do.

first off check if you have any coolant cause you will blow your engine if you keep driving it like that, second if you have an ohm meter ( electricians use them to measure the current in a circuit) test the connections at the fan and see if they are getting any voltage, if not then you will have to probably replace them

... all the while bearing in mind that if they are not getting any voltage they wouldn't operate even if they are in working condition. In other words, before you start replacing things do some proper troubleshooting. If there is no voltage to the fans find out why. There are a bunch of relays and sensors involved and one of them having failed is far more likely than 2 fans having failed. If you're not up to the task, (Like I wouldn't be) get someone who understands auto electrical to find the problem for you. It's worth it in the end. And yes. First things first. Check your fluid level.
