Thermo fan temperature settings
Have fitted dual AU fans in my XW (with plenty of modding!) and am planning to use two separate sensors to activate them. I am considering surface mounting the sensors on the outlet radiator tank (XD 3-core crossflow type) to measure the temp of the coolant entering the engine.
As the standard temp gauge in the car is probably pretty average to say the least, I was looking at lowering a temp probe into the tank to measure the actual coolant temperature. The switch/senders I am looking at come in 5 degree increments (eg 85, 90, 95, 100 degrees etc).
So, the question I have is what value temperature switch should I select to have the first fan come on, and what value temp switch would be the best to have the second come on? btw - have no idea what thermostat is fitted!
