Default a funny thing happened on the way to the forum

The fan came on. It was just for a couple of minutes. It was while I was on surface streets going from the auto parts place to an appointment. I am only driving it in emergencies and with the heat on full blast. Which sucks because it's hot out. It ran for a few minutes so I parked to pull the hood up to verify and it WAS on and then it shuddered and died. The fan not the engine. Is that confirmation the fan needs replacing or... ?

Maybe something's loose or a relay is cracked.

Wish it had been that easy but it was the fan after all. I have had problems ever since I replaced the fan about a year ago but I chalked it up to my crappy install. I am still a crappy installer this year too but this time the fan works like it did when I bought it. And only 2 bolts leftover this time!

I hope they were small bolts.

Good to hear it's repaired.

The fan housing is slightly warped but after spending hours trying to make the original bolts join the housing to the radiator I gave up and let the four top and bottom bolts get the car running well enough to run the ac. Then I bought some longer bolts. Waiting until my knuckles heal before putting those suckers on. I thought there were child labor laws? Those had to have been installed with baby's hands 😡
