What did you do to your Mini today?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, been a little while... this Thanksgiving morning, I plugged my scanner in and took a drive. I wanted to check that my radiator fan was working properly. I determined that it does seem to be working fine. I wasn't sure whether my 1st stage had failed again, but it appears it has not. I think the fact that the weather is cooler and my new CSF radiator is so good, the coolant temp is staying below 200, more like in the low 190's. So, the first stage doesn't kick in until something over 200, I don't remember precisely what.  Anyway, this is good news!


Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

My 2006 runs at about 195-200 with some creeping up to 205. If I sit at idle it may occasionally get up to 221 where the fan kicks on. You’re in good shape. You can also check the fan operation by turning on ac. 👍
