So just got my 98 running after finding the timing had jumped. Everything back together and the front fender and grills done. Took for a nice drive of a few miles and never had the fan turn on. Most riding was at a decent speed so not sure if it was needed. Since buying last fall I actually have never seen it run so I need to investigate if the system is broke, don't want to overheat in warmer weather and do damage. The oil temp light does come on with the key but have never seen it come on during driving. Does that mean the thermal switch is good if it lights? I would like to test the fan itself and have read to take the blue wire off the thermal switch and ground it with the key on. If the fan is good it should run. The blades do spin freely so will see what I can come up with. Seems from doing some reading the fan is a common problem on these models.
