Answer

The fan is meant to cool the radiator even after the car has turned off. Some vehicles have a heat type sensor to activate when the fan should "kick" in, others just automatically intermittantly run for a few minutes when turned on or have a set time for after it's turned off. Maybe when you did the wiring you inadvertantly disconnected something necessary to the start up of the vehicle. Sounds like you installed the fan to work properly so I would just concentrate on what wiring you were near when you put it in...something simple might've come off or loose.

I found the problem to be a poorly connected ground. After cleaning the plug the housed the ground; my problem was solved.

Greatestmind weighing in on this. Now it seems like you are saying your fan works fine but the coolant still overheats. If this is the case check your thermostat, and hope your water pump is working properly. Feel the inlet and outlet hoses on your radiator after about 5 minutes of engine running, both should feel hot to the hand.

There is only one thing you can do if your Heater in your car is not working. You will have to take it to the dealership and have them look at it.

Your radiator is your cooling system in your car so your car would over heat if you don't get that fixed soon and if it's a radiator at a house you would have no heat because that's a heater for your house

There is no such thing as a hot stock tip. The only such thing would be insider trading which is illegal. I would only work to keep an eye one what is invested and to watch for anything in the everyday economy which may have an effect.

Food coloring and sponges is about the only thing I can think of that would work as an ink pad. Fill the sponge with food coloring and it would work as ink pad.

no.they eat up your hoses so the best thing for that is to take it to the radiator shop it should't cost no more than 100.00 to have fixed and install back on the vehicle
