should I have an electric fan???

1996 Cherokee Sport 4dr auto 4L

I have a clutch fan that covers 1/2 the radiator...should there also be an electric fan?

I purchased the XJ partially assembled and there was no electric fan..

Thanks for the help!

Peace.........................BartG

Re: should I have an electric fan???

I'm not 100% sure about the newer HO XJs, but I have a 87 4.0l without AC that didn't come with an electric aux-fan.

If your Jeep has AC, it is missing the fan... there should be a relay and a connector plug for it somewhere nearby. The factory hookup will power up the fan whenever the AC is turned on, or when the coolant temp sensor sees 210*(ish?)

If yours has no AC an OEM XJ fan should slip right in: Add switched 12v through a relay to activate it when you need it, and be cool.

That....

and if you are going to add one get the newer style fan with more blades, its a lot more efficient. My 95 has it but its one of the first years, i think 94 or 95 was the first year.

What are the specs on the new style? Is the footprint/mounting the same? The fan my '90 is about shot and I didn't know there were two styles.

If it were me I would go to the junkyard and look for a mid 90s+ XJ with those parts intack. Everything should bolt in as far as I know.

This is what it should look like under your hood (Not my XJ)
