    Help Quick!!! Fan Doesnt Turn On

    after we finished replacing the headgaskets, the car seems to have less power. also, my temp guage and fan do not come on at all, and i am afraid that i am going to wreck something because of the heat. can someone give me some advice on what i should do?


    thanks

    Unplug the fan and run direct 12V from a battery to see if it works. If it doesn't, that may be the reason you blew the head gasket in the first place. Siemans makes replacement motors for our fans. Good luck

    the fan works when the ac is on, and the guage on the dash does not work at all, any thoughts?

    Help Quick!!! Fan

    Sounds like you didn't bleed the cooling system and have air in it.
    If you have air where the dash temt sensor is, there will be no dash reading. You have to loosen the tall rod near the t-stat while you fill the coolant until it starts to come out of the base. Take it to a rad shop and have them check it if you're still not sure. 3 things will kill your engine headgaskets: 1 over heating, 2 high exhaust back pressure, 3 detonation. Good luck
