Complete Fan Systems
How does a fan system work?
A car’s cooling fan system works by forcing air through the radiator. It facilitates and support the engine’s temperature management. The engine fan system is usually located at the front of the vehicle, either in front of or behind the radiator.
Parts of a fan system:
- The support: fixes the fan to the vehicle. On some cars, the support acts as a fan shroud that helps improve airflow
- The electric motor: controlled by the thermoswitch, pressure switch or Engine Control Unit (ECU), the motor often has two speeds (low or high) and is specifically designed
- For each vehicle to avoid overconsumption
- The fan
