Dear BMRFIXIT the engine will overheat unless I have the a/c on. I read some other posts with same problem what I needed to know is the guage on the dash reads right, (I know when engine is getting hot) but the fans don't kick on at all. Could this still be the temp. Sensor even though the guage reads right. Thanx for the quick reply last tme. Blazin24
