1992 Pontiac Sunbird 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 225000 miles
The problem I have is that the fan is always on. As soon as I start the engine it is on and never stops untill I shut the engine off. I have taken it to a mechanic and have had it looked at. He hooked it up to his computer and found that the coolant sensor was reading -39 degrees even when the engine has been running for a long time. He looked at my coolant sensor and said it was working, he also traced back the wiring and found it was all good all the way to the computer. So I replaced the computer and the problem is still there. I replaced the coolant sensor relay with a new one and still the fan stays on. I have the smell of gas as well, he told me that since the computer thinks the engine is at -39 degrees that the choke stays open and therefore uses more gas thus the smell. The thing I dont understand is why would the fan be on in the first place if the engine thinks its -39 degrees?
