Engine Cooling problem
1993 Saturn SL2 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 165000 miles

I've learned that you guys on this site is very smart but I already have 3 questions that haven't been answered so I really don't know for sure. I have never got a response since I joined this site. Anyway, here's my problem again. My engine fan doesn't come on. My car can over-heat at idle if I'm in a traffic jam and it only takes about 5 minutes or so. I need those fans to work. I checked the maxifuses and instrument fuses and they are fine. Thats a start anyway. Yall know exactly what a underhood relay looks like. I took it off but can't tell if its shot because its not transparent. The prongs looked okay. I really don't think the relay is what it is but I understand that would be the first thing to check(which I will replace of course). Where would you guys go from here?

Do you
have the same problem?

First of all put that cooling fan relay back in they hardly ever fail. Does ur a/c clutch kick in when u turn on the a/c meaning when u turn the a/c on does they center of ur a/c compressor spin?If so when u turn ur a/c on does ur cooling fan come on?Also do u have a multimeter or test light?

Was this
