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?

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
