Hi All,

I am a new proud owner of a 1997 GTV V6 Turbo, which has a few problems. The first one is the radiator fans coming on right after start up. As I have only had the car for a day, and the temperatures here in the Czech Republic are late 70's, perhaps I am expecting too much, but to my knowledge, fans should switch on after 90 degrees or so.....

Any ideas?

FYI, the car has had the crankshaft refurbished and the bearings replaced, and there is a tapping noise coming from the engine (as you might have guessed, I am no car mechanic!), but it does seem to run smoothly.

Just had a quick search around the forum, and found some info that states that the fans come on immediately, if you have the aircon selected. Is that true, and am I worrying about nothing?

The temps were reaching about 95 on the way back today, but on the motorway at about 90mph it was sitting at just over 90.

I was also wondering whether the poor aircon temps (not hot, but not cold though) might be connected with this.
