Overheating car!?

I think the cooling fan in my car isnt working, which would make my car overheat, but how do I check the coolant fluid? I have a Daewoo Leganza and couldnt find it in the manual. Also, if it is the fan, do I have to order one from like Japan, or are there places in the US that have or make them? Would I have to order a whole new one, or would I just get the current one repaired? Is there anything I can do to prevent myself from getting an entre new fan?

Take it to a dealer and have them check it out or if you have a good auto repair shop in the area. There a r e few things like a bad thermostat, water pump, or a problem with the radiatior. So you need to have some one look at it befoer you just go buy something.

It's probably not the fan, but the sensor that turns it on and off. Start the car and put the AC on, if the fan runs, it's OK. Now turn the AC off and let the car idle until it gets hot. If the fan doesn't come on, it's the sensor.

I had an overheating Jeep Cheorkke once (1996). Coolant level was OK. Turned out the bottom 40% of the radiator was clogged with rust. Regular flush didn't cure it, but the power flush did.

There is a kit you can buy at any auto parts store that will test the temperature that your coolant is good for. If that comes back ok then check you fan belt for slippage and then check your thermostat. If you can not find a thermostat right away take your old one out and cut off the bellows from the bottom and... More
