Question
Hello Skip

I hope you can help me with this simple question.
I have a Honda Accord year 2000 model. At the grille there are 2 fans, one bigger (the left one) than the other fan. May I know what fans are they? Also I could not find the fan belt. Is it true now they don't use fan belts anymore.

Thank you. Your reply is very much appreciated

Eddie,
  I read this last night and printed it out so I could take it to work and look at some photos of the fans on your car. You didn't tell me which engine so I just guessed a V-6.
  The fan that sits by the radiator is for engine cooling. The radiator can be identified by looking for a large (1 3/4") hose going to the top of it. I didn't think to look, at work, but it probably has a cap on top of the radiator.
  The other fan is for the Air Conditioner condenser. It probably won't come on unless the A/C is on.
  Since the fans are electric, they are NOT belt driven. You still have a belt for the accessories such as A/C, alternator, water pump and power steering... but no fan.
  If you would like to see photos of your fans and possibly a better description, you can go to WWW.DormanProducts.com and look at photos 620-226 for the radiator fan and 620-228 for the A/C condenser fan.
  I think that is about it. If I have forgotten anything, just contact me again. Thank you for your question and I hope I answered all your questions to your satisfaction.

Heretofore, I will NOT answer any mechanical question. I am not qualified and can only offer speculations. You are better served by others that are true Techs. With that being said, please only ask about parts and locating obsolete Auto Parts. Thank you. I have the ability to locate quite a few mechanical parts for American made vehicles fron the 1900`s to present. Some are OEM and some are aftermarket. This would include engine, brake and chassis parts. Body parts and trim are VERY difficult to find but you may inquire. If you need assistance in repair, I have illustrated books for major American manufacturers that show some illustrations BEFORE 1974. If needed, I can supply repair manuals for your specific vehicle. PLEASE REMEBER I'M A PARTS SPECIALIST, NOT A TECH!! Thank you.. Skip
