My engine fan runs alot on my 98 contour Whats the deal?

5 posts in this topic

The other day all I did was drive a couple blocks to micky D's and while I was in the drive thru my electric fan kicked in and I'm trying to figure out why? As soon as it kicked in I looked at temp guage and was just off of cold a little and it had not been run all day before that. Could it be a sensor of some sort??? Because my check engine light has been on for quite some time and last time it came on and everything was working fine all I did was disconnect the battery for a few minutes and then it stayed off for a few weeks.

Did you have the A/C on?

Are the heater controls set on defrost?

Did the cooling fan shut off a short time after?

Might be a normal concern.

There are a couple different concerns with this vehicle in the cooling system. Yours I believe can be fixed by reflashing the pcm and replacing cooling fan relay if needed. There was a recall about high speed cooling fans coming on when not needed, but this was a old recall and will not be valid any more, but there is a tsb for it now. #98-19-4.

You didnt say engine size! If it is a 2.0 they have had lots of problems with water pump impellers falling apart, you would need to replace the water pump. But I think the reflash and relay will fix your car!

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
