Are the fans coming on when you reach temp??? Did you run any flush thru the raditor? The raditor could be clogged....

Fan motor is burned up and don't come on and haven't flush radiator because radiator is not that old

Replace fan motor.

How sure are you that the fans gonna produce? If going down the road over 50 mph and motor still overheats with the plastic fan rotating? Jw no doubt on your knowledge

REPLACE THE FANS........... i do agree with #bender

I just had the same thing happen to my '01 SC2 and I had a crack in my radiator and the Radiator fan motor needed replaced. It was also overheating and blowing warm air from the AC. Glad I took it in!
