ok, thanks

Thanks for the reply, but my question is this.. If its the middle of winter and I start the car, put the heat control to defrost, the fan will come on and in my mind, the car will take for ever to get the coolant up to temperature. So is the best thing to do is to warm up the car with the heat control on HEAT and then when you are ready to do, switch the control to DEFROST?? Other than driving this car when it needs service I do not drive it so I do not really know its personality.

Sorry for not keeping you guys posted, work and school...

Anyways the CCRM is indeed in the right passenger fender well of my 1997 3.8L like WMBurns suggested. I have a Haynes manual that confirms this as well, I'm just learning my way around that book. I replaced it and the fan functioned normally. The inner fender liner was a task of itself but was brutally muscled in place. Again, thanks for the diagnosis and advice guys!

I stand corrected. Guess it only must be the 94-95's that have the CCRM there. Anyhow, I'm glad you got it fixed......
