Question Aux fan?

Is the fan really needed?

Im curious as I never use the heat or AC in my car anyways and with the fan refusing to spin I was wondering if I needed to replace it or it didn't matter I live in PA by the way so Im unsure if it gets hot enough to where it'll make any difference.

its good to have for those just in case traffic jams on the hottest day. but no you dont need it if you do not use the ac. the aux fan is designed around the ac condenser more then for engine cooling.

thanks, however yesterday I did the test and found out the fan spins I just was dense on waiting ony 15 mins to see if it'd turn on lol.

I had no idea it had to get really hot before it would run.
