Engine fan starts after shutting car off?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

After a long drive home last night (not spirited!) my temp reading was the usual between the 8 and the 0 in 180 (maybe touching the left part of the 0.... so not hot at all... anyway, I finally get home, shut the car off and after 10-15 minutes I go outside and the engine compartment fan is at full blow. I put the key in the ignition and remove it and the fan stops.... is that normal? This is the second time it does that in 2 weeks.....:confused:

Thanks!

I read a previous post where Loren detailed how the engine compartment fan works. Apparently the car takes temp readings every few minutes after you shut it off, and it it stays above a certain temp, the fan will kick on for 20 or 30 seconds (I can't remember which he said) at a time ever few minutes until the engine compartment is below the designated temp.
