Yeah my rad fan isnt engaging untill 2/3rds of the way up the scale. Working on putting an adjustable thermostat control in, out of a old freezer or something.

My plan with the fan was to just install a 30A relay and switch it on manually. After what I've been reading, I don't trust the computer to do it.

Yeah those wasps are annoying as hell. I knocked a few nests from out of the door and I've been standing there with a can of WD-40 waiting for them to try landing on the car again. Got a few, but the others seem to clue in and wait until I walk away . Once I start driving it regularly they'll find somewhere else though.

The fan quit working one day, but if I grounded the wire then it would come on. (Obviously not the fan but the sensor was bad) I replaced the sensor but the new one looked like it had been installed by someone else previously. It also came out of the box with the threads wrapped in teflon tape which maybe insulating the circuit. I realized after installing it and still having problems that they maybe due to the tape.

I do also remember thinking that one of the front calipers was behaving strangely. It would pull to one side under heavy braking.

You should have seen the wasps nets I cleaned out of the fenders last year, they were bigger than my fist.

Flex-A-Lite makes an adjustable fan controller. It's sold at lordco for like $35 bucks or somthing. Makes it a little easier to keep your engine running cooler than it would as stock. look it up on the flex a lite website

So Craig, your dad totally wants to fix it right
I'm sure it would be no problem, he's done it before. But keep in mind, it's not free. p.s. where did it crack?

$55 is the price, looks identicle to the one that was on the Impulse. Swapping in the Ford 3.8L slim fan on the AFC to keep under hood temps down. Stock fan just isnt cutting it.

that'd be worse than front and rear with no side.

*edit: that's what she said.
