At what temperature is the electric cooling fan on the car suppose to call come on?
Typically the fan switches on when the engine temperature reaches anywhere from 200 to 230 degrees.
Racer your link contradicts itself. The 4th paragraph says 195°-215° ...then on the bottom it does say 200°- 230°. Seems to me 230° is a bit late for the fan to come on. Wouldn't you agree?
Hmm? I didn't notice that at first @ FordNut. Not sure why it gives 2 different temp. ranges in the same article. Agreed that 230 degrees is a bit late for the fan to kick in! Guessing that 195-200 degrees makes more sense...Thoughts?
A cooling fan that won't come on until 230° is like the analogy of closing the barn door after the cow got out. It needs to PREVENT it from getting that hot. And @ heavychevy1 -- does you car have one or two fans? I did a search and found both set-ups for 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier Z24 Coupe. If you have two, one of them should come on whenever A/C is on ..and what engine do you have?
