Experiencing Engine Over Heating Problem?

How to Test Engine Fan

The fan is a two speed fan and one wire will run it in high speed and the other will run it in low speed. Off the top of my head I can’t remember which wire color is which speed but there is a distinct speed difference.

The black wire is ground.

All you may need to do get; cooling fan relay ($30.00), (top of radietor), crey & black, super easy to change. I had problem to have AC always keep cooling (trafic red lights) and working when driving, until quit completely & over headed. I worried as it may head gasket gone, NO ITS this silly a little part…since that, cooling fan works as it should be as AC. Very a little known thing. Even my friend AC professional was not aware of…there you see, what these guys know…they will change every part in your car & a lot money, for almost nothing! I hope this will help & people read this very usual problem!
