Well the problem that I had was that something went wrong with my car's ECU, and the electric fan it came out with never received a pulse to switch on when needed, resulting in a blown headgasket and cracked head Now the cost of repairing that was rediculous, so I had the autoelectrician just make the fan run with a relay, so it's on all the time on full speed.

I can tell you, that noise was killing me. Last week I had it ripped out and replaced with a clutch fan. That's me, happy
