The electric fan that cools the radiator does not come on unless

Customer Question

The electric fan that cools the radiator does not come on unless I am in stop and go traffic or driving up a steep hill. Normal driving the temp gauge stays at what I call a normal temp. When i am in stop and go traffic, etc the needle starts goin up to a point that I get concerned. The fan eventually comes on and the temp does not get any hotter and may come down. Normal driving the fan does not come on.
JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Buick. The Buick Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: I would like to fix this myself unless it is complicated.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Buick Mechanic should know about your Buick?
Customer: no. My 2002 buick century #.1 L V6 only has 73K miles on it
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Buick Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
