Re: I let the smoke out of my cooling fan motor...

I agree Dorman stinks, there just don't seem to be many options out there. That being said, the Dorman on on Amazon shows a 12 month warranty, but the NAPA one is lifetime. They use the same pictures so I'm assuming they are the same part. but at least you can take it back to NAPA for an exchange......

Re: I let the smoke out of my cooling fan motor...

Trying to find something local for a quick fix... I see a few options for new aftermarket ones: Autozone has a VDO one for about $153 (VDO is OEM, right?) Napa has their own brand, (but the pics are the same as the Dorman one) for $162 Amazon has a Dorman one for $127 (2 day delivery though...) Oddl...

1998 S/V70 I let the smoke out of my cooling fan motor...9497929

Hello all, I just pulled into my house and it looks like my radiator fan has bit the dust. Smoke coming out of the motor, fan blades frozen, wires melting, relay is HOT... I quickly disconnected from the harness, but I need a new fan. Do I need to look at replacing other item that might have been da...

Two things to explore If the cabin temp sensors get clogged ECC will be erratic If the fangordses k THis is what happens when you post after being up for 36 hours post red eye flight..

"surging" HVAC fan and random heat...

Hey guys,

My HVAC has started behaving badly... After running fine for a while the fan will slow down, then go up 100%, possibly blow some hot air, and then drop back down to normal, all in a span of about 5 seconds. Any thoughts on what could be causing this?

Re: POLL: How did you buy from FCP?

I have certainly purchased a great deal from FCP over the years, both for my Volvo, and my various BMW's. I, by habit, just type FCP into my address bar and go from there. Hell, I've been doing this so long that I typically type fcpgroton.com and go from there... I'm sorry to hear that they are not ...
