Here is a simple 1 speed on/off dependable electric fan set up.

FAN MOUNTED IN STOCK SHROUD




FAN PULLEY AND BRACKET REMOVED





DIAGRAM HOW TO WIRE







DRILL OUT BOSS NEXT TO TEMP GAUGE SENSOR AND TAP WITH 3/8 NPT THREADS (MIGHT BE 1/2 MPT) FOR THERMOSWITCH





I PERSONALLY USE A CLOSE AT 205 AND OPEN AT 195 THERMOSWITCH, SORRY NO PART NUMBERS.

SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE BUT WILL NOT FIX A CLOGGED OR WORN OUT RADIATOR. IF YOU NEED TO REPLACE RADIATOR, I HAVE USED A SINGLE AND 2 ROW ALL ALUMINUM RADIATOR FROM EBAY AND HAD NO ISSUES WHATEVER. I HAVE PULLED SEVERAL HILLS IN HOT AMBIENT TEMPERATURE IN 4 LOW BUT I ALSO RUN A BY PASS AS MENTIONED IN SOLOMIATA.

JUST MY 2 CENTS.

Thank you I do appreciate the reply but I have had too many bad experiences so for now I will go with the replacement,maybe down the road. BTW upyourkia I emailed you through your site a while back and never got a reply. I was looking for a lift.

I did have some major surgery in Feb and recovery in March so if you sent it around that time frame it is possible I missed it somehow. Resend it and I'll get back to you.

As far as bad experiences, the clutch fan in a Kia Sportage is a weak area so hope it works out for you.
