Does anyone know what controls the fluid to the cooling fan there has to be a valve in the line somewhere,and something controling it ? How does one check to be sure if it is working right? My transmision oil and engine coolint go up to about 190 from 180 when climbing.

The cooling fan on the 2000 is controlled by a valve near the fan. When the engine reached operating temp the valve operates the fan at max rpm. Temperatures of 190 are normal under climbing loads. If that is the highest you see you have no worries.

Dave,
I have been told that the valve is called a 'squeese' valve and is located near the top of the radiator. It is totally heat controlled and cannot be set or changed.
