Radiator Fan Assembly

By Bret B, April 15, 2008

The radiator fan assembly, which helps to cool the hot coolant in the radiator, is comprised of cooling fan(s), cooling fan motor(s), and a fan shroud.

Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Radiator Fan Assembly

  • Fan may become noisy
  • Engine may overheat, especially when idling and driving in traffic
  • A/C may perform poorly, especially when idling and in stop-and-go traffic

Radiator Fan Assembly Related Repair Advice

  • If a new fan assembly is required, the engine may have been overheated and should be checked for damage before replacing the fan
  • If only some parts of the fan assembly are replaced, those that are not should be thoroughly inspected to make sure they are still in good shape. If not, the parts should be replaced, too.
