Will a non-functioning fan cause coolant reservoir to overflow?

    Are you saying the electric fan in front of the condenser is not working or that the fan clutch is so worn out that the belt driven fan will not spin as it should? When idling for over 30 minutes (in Miami temperatures) my temp gauge never goes above half and never gets hot enough for the electric fan to come on, until I hit the A/C switch. A bad reservoir cap will cause the coolant to over flow and a bad fan clutch will cause you to over heat when idling. A bad thermostat will cause the car to run too cold or too hot all the time. A bad water pump will make the car run too hot all the time.

    Yeahm just look at the water temp when it does it. You could get an electric fan.

    Only if it causes an engine over temp, but you'd see it on the gauge... hopefully. :barf:
