General Comments:

I have a question regarding a 91 dodge shadow. The car keeps overheating. I believe that the fan is not turning on when it should. I checked it and it works, but the sensor I think is not making it turn on. And I don't have a maintenance book. Can someone tell me there the sensor is and how I can test it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Hi, it's the fan relay that's not working. They only cost around 5-10$ and are usually mounted on the right or left side under the hood against the body, usually screwed to the body. I would just replace it.

It's bad judgment to replace car parts without testing them first. You should read up on this and test it with a "multi-meter".
