Default 99 SL1 radiator fan

I have a 99 SL1 that has developed a cooling issue.

I am suspecting that it is the fan motor, but it's currently too hot to deal with, so I'm letting it cool while I do the same.

My next step is to test the power at the fan according to the Richpin video.

Assuming it is bad, what's my best source for a replacement? My handy-dandy Autozone app doesn't show a fan or fan motor specific to my Saturn.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I got a new fan motor from one of the 3 local places. It was pretty easy to replace and cheap too. If not AutoZone then it would be Advance Auto or O'Reilly's.

I replaced mine with one from Rockauto. $30ish for the Four Seasons brand one, made in Canada too. Easy to replace, takes about an hour or so.

Based on my search results I have to assume your app is set to only show in-stock/in-store parts...

I don't need one, but this would be my choice if I did. I've been running the Four-Season's/Unimotor HVAC blower motors in my truck. I've gone through several, but I've got almost 300K miles, and I run the blower a lot...leaves too the previous one out, so that was my fault.

Thatís he problem with four seasons and Autozone. You end up having to replace them every 50,000 miles or so. Itís really hard to beat the quality available at pick n pull. When you could still buy those originally they were over $100

Is ACDelco the OEM? If so, I will pick one up from Rock Auto for my stash so I can add to my magnetic collection.

AC Delco makes nothing now, they are reboxers with maybe better qa.

I would jump on the VDO closeout deal.

AC Delco is GM. AC Delco could be something made by GM, or a supplier that actually made the original, or it could simply be what they're offering now, for an application.

AC Delco WAS GM but was spun off back in 2007. Now independent.
