Yeah that’s what’s up next for replacement. Any recommendations for good electric fans for relatively cheap? Are fan shrouds necessary or just the fans? Btw I’m out in Arizona with an average temp of 101 most days currently so that’s probably a contributing factor.Might just be the electric fans don't flow nearly enough to keep it cool.
Noted, so then best solution seems to be upgrade the alternator and get contour fans?Problem with electric fans is that any fan worth anything will draw at least 20A and the stock 5M alternator isn't very oversized stock. And yes you want a shroud if you want the fan to work correctly. Not the prettiest solution, but on a budget Ford Contour fans are a decent choice. You can get them at the junkyard or there are new aftermarket ones around $100.
