    Default Query About Raidtor

    AOA

    Guys i have Toyota Corrolla GL 99 model (EE100 / 1300cc ).
    Recently it started over heating i went to mechanic and he suggest that radiator needs to be changed.
    So i've got it changed.
    The new radiator was of different model and slight bigger in breadth then the old radiator. and also the mechanic said it is dual vien (??). and also i noted that old radiator cap didnt fit on new radiator so mechanic asked to get cap for xli and that cap was perfectly fit So now the engine is not over heating but i have noted that when my old radiator was working fine the temp needle remained in middle , the auto fan switch kept it there
    but now with new radiator the fan automatically starts when the needle is way below half. and needle remains below half

    My Question is : is it alright that way ?? cause i've heard that at half temp (optimum temp) the consumption is good.

    there is a chance that your mechanic turned your fan to direct other than automatic(genuine and fan starts when engine warms )...better to test with the following procedure

    turn the ac off and turn your ignition key at level 2 .dont start the engine just turn your ignition level to 2 see whether the fans turns on ...if fans turns on then mechanic turned your fan to direct
