Hi Yogi. Glad to hear you scored a cheap fix on that :-)

I just finished putting the entire fan assembly in ours. It appears that I didn't screw it up, it comes on at ~195 degrees and scales.

Couple of questions though.

A) If I lost about a half pint to a pint of coolant out of the radiator top end while doing this, do I have to worry about air lock in the cooling system?

B) Is there anything that needs to be done RE the engine management system for the unit and the vehicle computer to "sync"?

Replacing the fan was quite the pain in the ass. I was sweating getting it in for a bit. Car has 171,000 miles on it, still seems to be doing good. I noted another vermin had crawled into the space under the manifold cover and started storing crap there, second time for that but the prior one had gotten baked there and mummified. Tech sent me a photo of it while they were fixing a power loss issue, which was due to said rat eating through something under there...

I would worry about any excess air in the system! Just keep the coolant level up to the seam on the reservoir and you should be OK.

No. The main thing is to get as much air out of the system as possible, otherwise you'll be having overheating problems. Let me know if you need more info on air removal.

I hope that the rat didn't eat through any of your wires??
