On my 89 Gti motor in my 91 firefly running without a thermostat, the rad fan doesn't kick in till its about to hit the hot notch in the temp guage. Is tht normal or is it supposed to come on just after half?

It's normal... the fan will turn on if the engine is idling for too long time... maybe 10 minutes... depend on the weather... I don't know exactly number of the temperature...

So the fan turning on just before the overheat line is normal? Uncomfortably hot for me haha
