Mine was doing that too. In the mean time, grab some "Bars Leak Liquid Copper™ Block Seal Intake and Radiator Stop Leak" fomr autozone or wherever. I haven't had a leak yet.

I was under the impression the FSR only effected the blower speed not temperature, I replaced mine when the fan was erratic.

You're correct, and you've answered your own question.

If its cold outside, and the the fan doesn't blow the selected temperature, then it could make for a cold ride.
