Fan stopped working...things to check?

I haven't even popped the hood yet (gets hot at a stop, cools off when I start moving, 99% sure its the fan tstat and radiator are new), just checking if there is anything anyone would recommend checking so that I may be able to fix it faster.

Your coolant temp sensor is probably bad. Itis a brass sensor screwed into the top of the upper intake manifold and is an easy repair

Why would the temp sensor show a different reading at a stop than moving?

I am almost positive the temp sensor is not the problem...

There's a recall on the 95's I don't know if any 94's are included. See if you can turn the fan by hand. The bearings go bad and cause the wiring harness to melt.

See my reply in the other forum.

The ECT going bad is very common on SN-95's. It gets hot when you stop, because no air is moving through the radiator. The air is moving when you are moving. If you have a working fan, when you stop, air will still move....

trust me...this is most likely the problem. It is a commom problem and easy/cheap to fix. The recall does not include the '94. Only '95
