That's an A/C - no A/C thing. The reason why you have one fan is because you probably don't have an A/C in your car. Cars equipped with A/Cs have two fans hanging off the radiator.

Ya i have AC and it sorta works and i only have one fan. My car always stays in the middle of the temperature gauge and i dont trust it for anything. Both of the cars my friend has had (Maxima and Stanza) had two big ass fans and they worked great, the gauge meter always stayed a little before center. Is there a cheap easy swap to get dual fans?? like a NX radiator w/fan?

This is really weird. My car has A/C and has two fans. I saw a few SE-Rs that didn't have an A/C and only had one fan. Hell, this stood true for all cars that I looked at. So now I'm baffled. :confused:

Mine came with a/c and two fans. 97 200sx SE-R. But after removing the a/c I also removed one of the fans because it's really no longer needed. The car actually runs cooler now than it did before when i had two fans and a/c. This is also with the car running a gti-r motor now with a bunch of mods and a nice forge front mount in front of it taking up some of the air. I see no problems associated with running only one fan unless you're running into some serious cooling issues.

Which fan did you remove? If you were standing in front of the car facing the engine, did u take out the one on your left or your right?

I think mine was brobably removed. I think it had an accident a while back because the bumper is an XE bumper and the radiotor is loose. The brainiac didnt remove AC so now i still carry all that dead weight around.

look up under your car right below your alternator. there should be a nice big round compressor on a bracket right infront of your oil pan.. if not then you go noo ac. and there should be two big lines running to your fire wall on the left when facing the bay. and you should have another radiator looking thing just smaller right behind your radiator....

i took mine all out lol.. soo if anyone is looking for parts i got em

Yea im not THAT DUMB!! lol

yea i got the compressor and all the lines but i dont really use AC and im really scared of overheating since thats how i blew my last motor, so i wouldnt mind having extra cooling for the engine w/ two fans and removing dead weight. I plan on having all my cooling system upgraded before the summer hits. Utah summer sux!! hot ass arid desert like 100 plus deegre temperature. Yuck!

if you remove the two fans, there is another place for just one fan to be right in the middle of the radiator. cools sufficiantly while losing weight
