    Fans wont kick on until a quarter to hot.

    the water pump in my car froze up causing my timing belt to break. I got it repaired at the shop however now if I sit in park too long my temperature gauge rises but the fans wont kick on until the gauge reads at a quarter to hot. what could be wrong? I already replaced water pump, timing belt, all heating sensors, cooling sensors, water pump housing, thermostat, etc.
    Please help!

    It sounds as if you need to replace your fan or fans. Some cars have one, others have 2. One or both of your fans seem to not be working to keep the radiator cool. And most importantly, get a SECOND opinion. Do not keep taking it to the same place that has made so much money from your car in which is still having problems. A second opinion is also needed to assure that everything that supposedly has been replaced really has. Unfortunately, there are some crooked mechanics out there. Good luck!
