Cooling fan failure. I would have the system checked. The fan is a common failure.

Yourself. You might investigate whether it is coming on, or not. This would be your starting point!

Connectors--Fuses--temp switches---and relays. Usual problems. Fan motor could be bad too, but not a "usual problem"

If you need assistance in locations. We "may" be able to help

Your owners manual and fuse box lids may offer locations

Let us know how it going. We're always here to help if we can. This could be simple!

I do anything to avoid a shop, If it can be done by me.I prefer eating well, at McDonalds, over feeding the Mechanic at Outback Steakhouse!

ASEMaster6371,

I AIN'T TRYIN TO STEAL THE GLORY, OR NOTHIN'!

I KNOW WHY I CAME ON HERE THE 1ST TIME. FOR FREE HELP!

THERE'S ANOTHER FELLER ON HERE THAT CRIES OUT "THIS IS WHAT'S WRONG. GO TO A DEALER. THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN 'PROPERLY AND CORRECTLY', FIX YOUR PROBLEM. GENERALLY LESS THAN 3 SENTENCES LONG.

HE COLLECTS HIS QUARTER, THEN ON TO HIS NEXT VICTIM!

YES, SOME THINGS ARE COMPLICATED, AND WAY OVER SOMEONES HEAD, CASE IN POINT: MY WIFE'S FORD ESCAPE AUTOMATIC TRANNY. PLANS FOR THESE THINGS WERE DESIGNED AT VARIOUS MENTAL WARDS NATIONWIDE! I DO QUALIFY TO LOOK AT 'EM! TAKE IT APART, NO CHANCE IN H. ELL!

SOME TASKS CAN BE PERFORMED BY AN "EVERYDAY IDIOT". YOU JUST GOTTA MOTIVATE 'EM, GIVE 'EM A PUSH, ENCOURAGE THEM. MAYBE EVEN MAKE THINGS INTERESTING, AND NOT SO TECHNICAL, MAKE 'EM SEE THIS IS EZer THAN PUTTING A CONTACT INTO A CELL PHONE. THEY SELDOM THINK ABOUT RESOURCES AROUND THEM, SUCH AS THEIR NEIGHBOR, ALWAYS UNDER HIS TRUCK HOOD. OR THE FELLER AT THE PARTS STORE WHO ACTUALLY KNOWS MORE THAN RUNNING THE REGISTER. IF--YOU--WILL--JUST--ASK!

I TRULY BELIEVE, MANY THINK WE ARE ROBOTS.I TRY TO EXHIBIT THAT I AM 100% CARBON BASED!

YES, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. MY DAUGHTER RIGGED MY PHONE UP, I CAN ANSWER, TALK, CALL A CONTACT. THAT'S ALL! ALL OTHER FUNCTIONS, HAVE NO BUSINESS BEING ON MY PHONE!

I JUST WANT TO GIVE EVERYONE A FAIR SHAKE, AND ALL POSSIBLE OPTIONS I CAN PROVIDE. ORIGINALLY ABOUT MY 1ST 700 ANSWERS WERE FREEBIES, I ANSWERED ONLY AS A HOBBY. JUST SORTA GOT ESCALATED INTO THE EXPERT SEAT, BY THE BIG GUYS.I STILL VIEW THIS AS A HOBBY, NOW WITH A BONUS!

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I MIS-READ QUESTIONS, AND THROW OUT WRONG INFO--I HOPE YA'LL WILL KEEP ME STRAIGHT!

IF YA'LL EVER SEE A BETTER WAY TO HELP SOMEONE ON THE POSTS I'M ANSWERING, JUMP IN. THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT!

MESS UP MY CJ GUYS (DEAREST TO ME!), LOOK OUT FOR THE WRATH OF CJ MEDEVAC!
