There are a couple of systems on a Jeep, 1 system has a regular fan that is driven by the engine and an electric fan that is turned on with the A/C, the other system has a fan that is driven by the power steering pump and no electric fan, and the last system I've seen has 2 electric fans, one is turned on by the engine temp around 220 degrees and the other fan is turned on with the A/C. So what system is yours?

@tennisshoes - we get to buy Yankie cars too, but they get changed to KPH instead of MPH and C instead of F and litres instead of gallons. I was TRYING to be funny; [was NOT pokeing fun]..... hey- I've answered questions on this site from South Africa,Australia and England ( and I think one was Russian)
