Engine Cooling problem

Where is the cooling fan air directed, to the engine or to the radiator?

It is positioned on the engine side of the radiator to pull air through the radiator. The fan is not there to cool the engine. It's there to cool the fins in the radiator.
It's only needed when the vehicle is not in motion because when it is, air is being forced through the radiator anyway.
