Re: [DML] Re: Cooling fans

I have a fairly stupid question.  Feel free to mock me if I am way off 
base, but...

Don't the cooling fans sit behind the radiator, and blow air forward? This 
seems all fine and good while sitting still, but when the car is in motion 
the airflow is entering the radiator from the front.  Doesn't this mean 
that using the cooling fans at highway speeds is actually 

On "old-fashioned" cars, this made more sense, since it would be silly to 
push the air through the radiator and into the engine compartment.  But on 
the DMC, there is no engine behind the radiator.  Besides, we have 
electric fans and not belt-driven fans, so they can be deactivated at 

I think it really gets nutty when the A/C condenser and engine radiator 
are strapped together, so that no matter which way the wind blows, one is 
always heating the other!
