you have an electric fan, make sure that there is voltage going to the fan itself. there is also a fan relay which is mounted under the right side headlight that may be faulty.

02WJ, Please stop posting on

02WJ,
Please stop posting on old threads. I'm not sure why you would do this but it doesn't help anyone. If you're just trying to rack up points, be advised that there's no contest on the site any longer.

Deep Dive,

As a reader and member of this site I think what you have stated is both incorrect and obnoxious. Why would you be so insulting to someone that feels that they have info that could help others? I assume you leave the old threads up to help other readers with similar vehicles and or problems. Am I right?

Just because the thread is old doesn't make it useless. The more info the better. Instead of being rude to a member you could consider other options... If posting on old threads doesn't help others in your opinion then TRY TAKING YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR @$$ AND DELETE OR LOCK THE OLD THREADS!

You let Bfree throw in all his BS one liners even when there was a contest.

You blast a member with a total of 50 points??? WTH? Are you a moderator or a hall monitor?

You folks have gotten rude!

drivability,

Sorry that this upset you. However, 02WJ posted a bunch of these. I deleted the rest of them but left this one up so that I could ask him to please stop. I don't really think that this qualifies as "blasted".
