Ok well I went back to the Salvage yard I was at 3 weeks ago where i found a smashed up 5.9.. Thank god it was still there... traffic was freakin horrible today tho... What usually takes 40min to get there took me 2 1/2 hours... i wasm oving like 2 mph for 15 miles... Had to turn my A/C HEAT on full blast to get the low speed fan to kick on and also the heat in the cabin to help cool the Jeep... that helped keep it at 210 or below while i was sitting in traffic..
Anyway the wrecked 5.9 which is the same one i got the amplifier out of 3 weeks ago, had both sensors on the upper and lower hose.. So i just pulled the T fitting out with the sensor.. The bagdes on the 5.9 were gone so i guess another 5.9 owner took em after last i was there..
Hooked up the upper T fitting with the new sensor from the dead 5.9 and the electric fan turns on... However it seems to act differently then my old one did... It comes on at around 203-205f (im watching the temps with my OB2 reader) and then it cools it down to about 194f... but it stays running constantly.. If the temps manages to drop to about 191-192f it will shut off and then turn back on at about 200f again and stay on forever if and when the temps get to 191f which hardly ever happens.. My old one turned on at about 210f and cooled it down to 200 and then turned off. It would only stay on for like 20-30 seconds.. And im talking over the last 2-3 years so prior to it dying on me.. This one litterally stays running for like 10-15 minutes while i was sitting the parking lot watching how it was working..
Is this new sensor faulty as well or is this normal for the fan to come on and stay on for like ever... It does turn off when im driving without stopped and coasting at like 45mph for a few miles before the next stop light... Seems like its staying on a little excessivly.. Im debating on trying the high speed sensor i grabbed as well.. I managed to get it and my old sensor on the T fittings out by using a vice my firestation had.. So it would only take like 10 minutes to swap them and see how that one reacts
It deff keeps the Jeep cooler then my old sensor did.. Both kept the Jeep below the 210f mark on the dash... However my old sensor kept the needle between the middle dash and the dash to the left of it.. This new sensor almost drops the Needle to the dash on the left spot on... Its about 8f cooler then before and like i said runs almost 24/7.. Shouldnt it cycle on then off... Do your electric fans stay on pretty much forever if your sitting idle parked ? Just doesnt seem right to me
See how cold the engine gets because the fan is staying on forever and almost never turns off unless it reachs 191f or so
