            Preventing engine overheating is a matter of keeping your engine cooling system in top shape. And we're not just talking about your radiator. Because as useful as your radiator is, it can't cool your engine without a dependable radiator fan and Fan Blade. You see, the radiator fan hastens the engine cooling process by aiding the radiator in dissipating engine heat. Naturally, when its blades crack, this fan won't function properly-and that affects the performance of your entire engine cooling assembly. So if you've got worn radiator fan blades, make it a point to replace them immediately. But before you purchase the first fan blades you find online, know that these components differ in terms of design, material, and as a result, benefits. In terms of material, expect to find fan blades that are constructed from plastic, nylon, aluminum, and stainless steel. All these blades are built to be long-lasting, but plastic and nylon blades are usually cheaper and more lightweight compared to their metal counterparts. You'll also find OE replacement and performance fan blades on the market. Replacement fan blades are direct-fit components that offer the same type of service as your original equipment. Performance fan blades on the other hand, may have an rpm rating of up to 10,000, making them ideal for performance and race applications. These specialized fan blades also lower engine drag to give you better fuel mileage and an increase in engine power.

            Tips to Consider When Buying Fan Blades

            The radiator fan is an important component of the modern automobile's cooling system, so once they conk out they need to be replaced immediately to avoid heat-related problems with the engine. However, buying a new set of radiator fan blades isn't as simple as walking up to the auto parts store and picking one whose color you like. Fan blades come in many different types, and buying the right one is crucial in ensuring that the radiator and the engine perform as they should.

            When buying a new radiator fan blade, take note of the following points:

            Engine-driven vs. Electric

            One of the key pointers to consider when buying a new radiator fan blade is whether the blade is powered by the engine or battery. Engine-driven fans, which are also known as manual radiator fans, only function when the engine is running and spins at the same rate as the engine. Electric radiator fans, on the other hand, are attached directly onto the radiator and use the car battery as a power source. You cannot mount an engine-driven fan or fan blade on radiators designed for use with electric radiator fans and vice-versa, so make sure to verify the parts before purchasing.

            Number of blades

            Another factor to consider when purchasing fan blades is the number blades the fan has. Radiator fans can have anywhere from 4 to 10 blades, and the more blades a fan has the more air it is able to push to the radiator. However, more blades also means the fan will have to compensate for the space and weight. Thus a fan blade than is meant for a 10-bladed fan is different both in weight and appearance compared to a blade designed for use with four-bladed fans.

            Flex fan blades

            When buying fan blades, you may want to give flex fan blades a try. One of the latest designs in fan blades, flex fan blades flatten once the fan reaches a certain RPM. This reduces resistance of the blades to almost zero and cutting down energy consumption in the process. But once the engine slows down, the blades return to their original state and work to keep the engine cool.

            Steps on Replacing a Fan Blade in Your Car

            The radiator fan is one of the key components that keep the engine cool, so once any of its blades snaps you can expect engine overheating to follow suit. And changing the radiator fan blade, or any cooling fan blade in your car for that matter, is quite easy enough for you to do without the help of a mechanic. In this guide, we have listed down the steps to replacing the fan blades in your car.

            Difficulty level: Easy

            Tools:

            • Ratchet set
            • Clean rag
            • Degreasing solution
            • Fuse (optional)

            Step 1: Before you start, shut off the engine and let it cool down. The heat from the engine and radiator can still burn your hands even with protective gloves, so it's best to leave it to cool for 30 minutes to an hour. We also recommend parking the car in the shade and opening up the hood to speed up the cooling process.

            Step 2: Disconnect the wires. This only applies for electronic fans, so if yours is engine-driven you can skip this step. With the ignition off, unhook the wires snaking out at the bottom of the fan. A slight tug should get the wire loose. In addition, we recommend taking this time to check the condition of the fuses of the radiator fan. The fuse is usually included along with the rest of the car's fuses in a box under the dashboard or in the engine bay.

            Step 3: Detach the fan blades. The blades are usually held in place with metal bolts, so use a ratchet of an appropriate size to twist the bolts loose. Once the bolts are gone, the fan blade should detach from the base without a hitch. Be careful when pulling out the blade to avoid hitting the fan shroud or radiator itself.

            Step 4: Clean the fan. Check if there is any grease, tar, or other residue stuck to the fan or fan blades. If there is, wipe off the stains with a rag dipped in a degreasing solution. For those hard-to-reach areas, use a pipe cleaner.

            Step 5: Attach the new fan blades. Slot the new blades onto the radiator fan base and bolt it into place. Once the blades are mounted, test it by starting up your car.
