Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I had the AC compressor and evaporator changed, before I drove to Ohio from Texas. Last Saturday I smelled antifreeze, temperature gauge was still showing at 3/8 mark, the low coolant light came on. We located the leak later and it shooting out under pressure when you put on the gas. Replace the fan relay fuse with the spare, but the fan still doesn't come on, and low coolant is still showing.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Even after replacing everything, that dealt with the radiator.

My brother drove the car further then before, it is now off. So it's the fan not working that I'm concern about, thanks

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
David, which side is the low speed and which side is the high speed
Pontiac Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

the low speed is the radiator fan, but should kick to high when temp gets up.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago

Pontiac Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

have you checked those fuses?

Ask Your Own Pontiac Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Just the one not sure which, do you think it could be the fan relay fuses? We can replace those tomorrow, since the parts stores are closed.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
We will change the fuses, see what happens, and any problems I could contact you tomorrow.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
David, I will do that and if anything still isn't resolved, I will come back. Thank you for you help.
