Turn the A/C, if the fan doesn't come then it's suspect. Now disconnect the fan connector, put an DC volt meter into the plug, start car and turn on A/C, it should read 12-14V, if so then your fan...

Re: ECTS & PCV Costs

Make friends with a Service Writer or Parts guy, you'll get parts for even cheaper than SaturnParts and you won't have to pay for shipping.
