We had a mobile mechanic come out to check the car over. He said the cooling fan needs to be replaced after he started the car with the A/C on and the fan did not come on. I tried it myself after he left and it did come on for about four or five minutes. Without buying all the special testers, how can I find out if it is indeed the fan or a fuse, relay, wiring, etc?
A little more detail, because some things I have read via Google asked about the A/C. The A/C did cool when I tested the car, but it smoked and sprayed a green fluid under the air intake hose (it looked like anti-freeze) and I was told it was refrigerant dye to find an A/C leak and the guy I bought the car from unplugged the A/C wire at the compressor. Since then, no smoke. The mobile mechanic connected the wire again for the test and left it connected.
So back to the question at hand. How can I find out if the fan is bad or if it is a fuse, a relay, the wires, or whatever without the tools of the trade (computers)?
