Re: electric cooling fan help ?

usually fan problems are relay related but if it isnt overheating then i wouldnt worry just yet, if its right in the normal range then the thermostat is handling the temp fine. that car is made big enough to handle a 5.0 V8 so the radiator is big enough to handle average driving conditions without the fan. turn the a/c on and see if it runs.
