My '94 Firehawk is starting to show her age...

She has a duel fan setup and the passenger side fan is not running. Not sure if it is the wiring, the motor, etc... When replacing the fan, I will replace both of them...might as well replace the entire setup while I have it all apart.

I have looked and there seem to be a few different sized fans and they claim to put out a really good range of air flow - up to 3500 CFM. My questions are...

What are the original fans size?
What would be the best setup to go with? Replacing the fans individually (piecemeal) or buying a kit that has it all
How much air flow do I need, versus how much will help keep it cooler, thus better performance?

Thanks for any and all responses. I know she will appreciate it!

Jim

I highly doubt the fan itself is bad. I'd put money on the fan switch or a relay.

A stock replacement fan motor will be just fine. No need to reinvent the wheel here.
