Read Running Warm

Hey guys please help,I am working on a 96 contour with a 4 cylinder.Temp gauge runs at 3/4 while going down the road.Put a new radiator and t-stat fair amount of rust in cooling system.Anyway no change still runs 3/4 I have never seen that fan come on.When I had the fan out to do the radiator it had 3 pins.I ran battery voltage on the 2 end pins and the fan worked.Could it be the sensor that tells the fan to turn on ?

Re: Running Warm

It could be the sensor. Not sure about your contour, but most have 2 sending units. One for the gauge, and one for the cooling fan. Make sure you get the right one. Does it seem like the fluid is circulating good through the radiator?
