Mitsubishi Overheats

Fix a Mitsubishi that Overheats

Many Mitsubishi vehicles use a variable speed setup for their radiator cooling fans. The computer monitors engine temperature, vehicle speed, and detects whether the A/C is on. The computer then tells the fan controller engine cooling needs and the fan controller drives the radiator fan and the condenser fan. If you’re having overheating problems, check the usual suspects. But also make sure BOTH fans are working properly. Because if the radiator cooling fan is not working, the fan controller will kick on the condenser fan to help cool off the engine. At high engine temperatures, that single fan may not provide enough cooling to bring the temps back down. And, the same thing can occur if the condenser fan isn’t working properly.
