The electric cooling fan on my 1997 Saturn SL1 is not running which obviously causes my engine to overheat within 5 minutes. If I run my heater on medium high, it dissipates the engine heat. But in 80 degree and higher summer heat, this is not a viable option for the entire summer. A repair garage informed me that the part and labor to replace the faulty part that will engage the cooliing fan will cost $320. Does this cost sound excessive to you?

High price. Try fuses and see if the a/c turns the fan on first its not like changing an engine you or friend could most likely figure it out. If not find a cheaper mech. Good luck.

I actually had the same problem with my Saturn when I first bought it. I also did the heat trick in the summer. IT SUCKED, but yeah $320 sounds about right to me. The part is about 120 I believe and the rest is labor.
