Whats this?

Postby Wedgbury » 29 Mar 2014, 18:20

The raised air hose had come apart in the back off the van so refitting and behind the hose I found what looks like a fan motor?
It looks like an intake hose goes up the rear pillar next to the air filter hose and then a Ali heating duct hose goes to the bottom of the engine.
The van is a 1.6JX LHD.
So what is it and can it be removed as the electrical connections are no long attached.
Thanks

Thanks for that, better get the wiring sorted out and I might get an extra 1mph out the old engine.

It dont really do much, only comes on when the ignition is off and the stat says the engine is too hot (think it is on the same circuit as the aux coolant pump)

Squirrelly...my advise is junk it...the weight loss won't gain you an extra mph but it is some tat out the way at least...the fan only runs when the engine stops if its extra hot after a huge climb or similar...I think it's fair to say they almost never work and normally the steel bits on the manifold have long since melted away..

I was coming to that conclusion, also a possible place for a electrical problem looking at the wiring.
At least the metal all looks good the only problem was the foam hose going from the snorkel into the air filter disintegrated.
Getting to learn the thing with syncro's is fix one thing something else crops up.
