I burnt out my radiator fan motor yesterday. I wanted to know if I should replace it with a stock unit or if I can go with a single speed aftermarket unit with an adjustable thermostat. If I should go with a stock unit, please list some places where I could get one for CHEAP :) I looked at www.autopartsgiant.com and they list it for $289.77.

These are the part numbers I have seen posted for just fan motor replacement:

Radiator Fan Siemans 89-93 Auto Zone 99.00 PM254 Motor only
Radiator Fan Siemans 89-93 JC Whitney 80.00 07DY5228N Motor only

I believe the PM254 is the actual Siemans part number, so you might be able to get the motor at other stores. This is for the early style only. You will need to remove the fan blades and reuse.

That used fan motor from the Escort or Taurus,same thing, lasted about a year before the bearings got sloppy and I had to throw it out. Bought a new motor at Autozone when I was in Carlisle for $99.00. This new Siemens motor is quite heavy and rugged, it's a direct bolt in, just remember to use the little sleeve they inlcude for the motor shaft or the fan blade will mount with a too much play in it.

don't quote me on this, but when i was looking into getting a new motor. advanced auto parts quoted me $35 for the new fan motor. i'm not sure if they made a mistake when looking it up on the computer or not, cause i just ended up taking the one out of my parts car and never bought the one from them.

Got the Siemens from Auto Zone for $99.99 and lifetime warranty. It is a really heavy duty "feeling" motor and was a direct bolt on as Les Borda said. Thanks who all that helped.
