Steps in Buying the Right Radiator Fan
One of the key components of your engine's cooling system is your radiator fan. It pushes or pulls air through your radiator core to ensure that it is properly ventilated. So when your engine starts overheating more than usual, it's time get a new radiator fan. But don't just buy the first one you see on your auto shop. Make sure you get the right one with these three easy steps:
Know the type of radiator fan that you need.
One of the most important factors to consider when choosing your radiator fan is its type. There are basically two kinds of radiator fans-manual and electric. Manual fans are cooling fans that are mechanically driven. This means that the moment your engine starts running, your cooling fan will start turning consequently. Mechanical fans, such as clutch models and flex fans, tend to be more fuel efficient because they stop when there is already sufficient air passing over the compartment. However, if you prefer more control on your radiator fan, then an electrical one would be a good buy. This kind of model is thermostatically controlled and is set to move only at certain temperatures, making it more convenient when it comes too cooling your engine.
Determine your budget.
The fit of your radiator fan will largely depend on how much you want to spend for it. If you've got quite a big budget, always go for an OE replacement part. Its original-like fit will give you a hassle-free installation since you can expect that it was made to be compatible with your system. This will also ensure higher quality and a longer life span for the cooling fan. If you're strapped for cash, though, you can always choose to purchase direct-fit parts. Although they are inferior in terms of quality, they will do about the same job as OEM parts.
Inspect the radiator fan that you want to purchase.
After you've determined the type and fit of radiator fan for your engine cooling system, the final step is to check the specs and features of the part. Just like any other auto part, your cooling fan has to function well in order to make the entire system work more efficiently. You will need to check different things depending on the type of fan that you'll get. When checking a manual radiator fan, for instance, see to it that it comes with four bolts, which will connect the fan to your radiator. If your radiator fan is a clutch model, make sure that it is built with a spring inside. Carefully check the specs of the part, and ask your supplier for details just to be sure.
Radiator Fan Installation Made Easy
A radiator fan helps in the vehicle's cooling process and draws air into the radiator to prevent the engine from overheating. Since the radiator cannot do the job of cooling down the engine on its own, a radiator fan is positioned between them so that a greater amount of air will flow easily into the radiator. A radiator fan usually has around four or more blades spinning rapidly to pull in more air. Over time, these blades may break and get damaged, causing the radiator fan to stop working. Replace a busted radiator fan right away to avoid overheating problems in the future. Here are the tools you'll need and the steps in replacing your faulty radiator fan:
Difficulty level: Moderate
Tools that you need:
- Ratchet and socket set
- Wrench set
Step 1: Disconnect the car's battery and all electrical wiring connected to the radiator first. Make sure the engine is off, and the fan blades have stopped spinning before removing them. Be careful. Don't let anything touch a spinning fan blade, as the fan will force it out of your hand and send it flying to any direction.
Step 2: Detach the fan shroud from the radiator using a wrench. Remove the bolts keeping the shroud in place and lift it to gain access to the fan. Disconnect any wiring connected to the fan.
Step 3: Loosen the bolts holding the radiator fan housing in place and remove the old fan. Some vehicle models require you to disassemble the fan clutch and take out the fan assembly first before you can install a new one. Either way, simply loosening the bolts will do the trick.
Step 4: Secure the new radiator fan in place with the set of mounting bolts you removed earlier. Reattach the wiring connected to the radiator and monitor your engine's temperature after the installation to ensure the new radiator fan is working properly.
