The parts that are needed to fix a car radiator depends on what is wrong with the radiator. It would be best to have the radiator fixed by a professional.
There are a few ways you could make your radiator fan turn on. You could fix the wiring for example.
Check the thermostatic switch
check the cooling fan sensor somewhere attached of the fan housing.
Fan motor..Water pump..Radiator
You will have to be specific about which fan you mean- the radiator cooling fan(electric or mechanical) or the heater fan. It might help too if state what is happening(or not)
No, the radiator fan is electric.No, the radiator fan is electric.
Need more information, is the fan just not working? I would first check the fan relay and temperature switches.
The most common causes of engine overheating (in no particular order): 1) Blown head gasket - fix = replace blown head gasket; 2) Blocked radiator core - fix = chemical clean &/or radiator back flush; 3) Stuck thermostat - fix = replace thermostat; 4) Faulty water pump - fix = replace water pump; 5) Non-functioning cooling fan(s) - fix = check wiring to fan(s) &/or thermo switch; 6) Broken / loose fan belt - fix = replace or tighten fan belt; 7) Lack of water / coolant in radiator - fix = top up radiator; 8) Retarded ignition timing - fix = check / adjust ignition timing; Hope this helps!
Before you fix the Fan Relay, look for a "RAD FAN" fuse (30 amp - orange). Normally, the computer diagnostic shows the problem is the Fan Relay, but, in my case was the Radiator Fan Fuse ($5). I waste $60 paying for the Fan Relay :-[
Check the temp sensor. Also, if the AC compressor is on the radiator fan will be on, so turn off the defroster and the AC.
I'm not a mechanic but, I had to replace my radiator to fix the overheating problem on my 1994. That was the last thing I replaced after replacing the water pump, thermostat, and replaced my fan with a clutch fan. have not had anymore problems with it overheating once the radiator was replaced. Flush the coolant first then replace the radiator. Hope this helps.
Thermal relay is stuck. Replace it.
Try fixing it with your car engine or ask a mechanic to fix it for you, best of luck to you
Depending on the vehicle, the cooling fan may strike the radiator shroud, the cooling fan may also strike a radiator hose and you may end up with a cracked/leaky exhaust system.
If the question is about the motor fan or engine fan, the main function of this fan is cooling the radiator of the engine which in turn is cooling the water circulating inside the engine unto the radiator and back. This keeps the engine at a fairly operable temperature without overheating and damaging damaging its parts.

to add to this, a big YES,on the radiator cap .the radiator cap needs to be specific pressure rating. radiator caps do wear out. also the cheapest fix to start It is doubtful a radiator cap would cause a car to overheat. Common overheating causes are insufficient coolant, leaking coolant (into or out of your engine), faulty thermostat, blown cooling fan fuse, faulty fan temperature switch ( sender ), faulty fan, or a faulty fan relay.
Yes. Cooling fan, engine fan, and radiator fan relays are all the same thing.
Radiator, fan, water pump, hoses, heater core, thermostat, engine block, radiator cap,...
The radiator coolant fan fuse can be found in the fuse box. The radiator fan fuse will be in the second column, fourth from the top.
The first step that you can take to fix a radiator is to see if it needs to be bled. To bleed a radiator you will need a radiator bleed key. Unscrew the valve at the side of the radiator and when the first drop of water comes out, close the valve again. If this does not fix the radiator you will need to call in a plumber.
