2001 olds intrigue: runs radiator, new fan, thinking..adjust

This answer was rated:

I have a 2001 olds intrigue and it runs hot or it takes to long for the fan to come on. Here's what I've done so far, new radiator, new fan, thinking about a new thermostat. Is there anyway to adjust when the fan comes on?

Hello and thank you for choosing Just Answer.


You cannot adjust when the fan comes on, that is computer controlled. You should check the thermostat by putting it water and boiling the water. See at what temperature the thermostat opens up. The thermostat should open up at 180 degrees. If it does not open up at 180, you need to replace it.


If you want to adjust when the fan comes on you need to purchase an adjustable cooling fan controller as seen in this LINK
