  1. Overheating 1990 Alfa Spider Quad

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    I’ve just replaced the relay fuse and the therm switch fan in the radiator. Temp still reaching 175 quickly then within minutes close to 250 triggering red heat warning light on dash. Fans not turning on. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated
  2. 1990 Alfa Romeo Quad fans not working.

    I have ordered the relay fuse for the fans which are not turning on once car gets above 176, I was also told that it could be my coolant temp sensor. I have no clue where this is located or how to replace it. I am a novice to this car so any pics would help as well.
