Ok so my fan switch isn't turning on my fan anymore, everything was working fine up until I noticed my gauge going past where my fan turns on. The fan works thru the ac, so the relay is good, and if I ground it from the fan switch it also turns on. So I want to replace it with a lower 210-200 temp fan switch just because, even tho its fine with the stock one lol. So anyway what car does this come in so I can go and pick one up after work?

Oh this is for 87 SE 2.8

you hould be able to go to any parts store and get a factory temp one, fairly common on numerous GM vehicles. If you want a lower temp one order one from rodney. http://rodneydickman.com/ca...h=22&products_id=235

Thanks, yeah I know. But I wanted to be able to just go down and pick one up after work. That's why I wanted to know what cars came with the 210-200 fan switch.

I think the best you can do is a TS136 (oe is 03053190 I believe) from various 3.8l turbos (Grand National, etc.). It's like 210 on and 200 off, or similar. Below that you get into the aftermarket - look at Hypertech as you can get them to come as low as 176 degrees.

I found this when looking to cure the same problem, but I currently believe my gauge is just wrong.

This switch is like $30 vs. the $5 or $10 the factory switch is.

Thanks, but wow that's alot. I was looking online at napa just cus that's about the only auto parts store in my little town lol and found this one

http://www.napaonline.com/C...-ECHFS111_0365985334

Coolant Fan Switch Temp Rating : On At 204-220 Deg. F.

Coolant Fan Switch Thread Size : 3/8" x 18

Terminal Type : Round Female

Does that mean that it turns on at 220 and turns off at 204? Or is that the range that the fan MIGHT kick on as it doesn't list the off temp like it does below for the stock one?

this is what comes up as the stock one at napa.

Coolant Fan Switch Temp Rating : 224-236 Deg. F, Off 212 Deg. F

Coolant Fan Switch Thread Size : 3/8" x 18 NPTF

Terminal Type : Round Female

Oh and I will be running the stock thermostat, just want the fan to come on a little quicker that's why looking for a lower fan switch

I am running a Derale 180 degree switch management unit. It works well. The car liked 180 when it was a 2.8 and it still likes it as a 4.9
