  1. hey guys so i just jumpstarted my car (cuz i left the lights on...otherwise the car's been running great recently) it was after that that i noticed i was overheating (like almost in the red) i checked out the radiator while it was still running and the fan wasn't running. is it supposed to turn on while the car is running or just once the engine is turned off? it looks like everything else works (no leaks or anything) but i havent checked out the thermostat or anything like that cuz i dont really know anything about how those work...womp womp... anybody got an idea of where to begin looking for the problem? oh also the temp gauge rises mostly when im idling but once i drive around a bit it tends to go down a little bit but not very much
  2. hey so the other day, my car stopped starting. the mechanic says its the control module under the dash. i have a few questions about this. a) what exactly is the control module? what does it do? is this what im looking for? and will it fit on my 74 Z? c) if not where can i find a control module? any help on this would be much appreciated!
  3. Hey I just discovered today that my coolant reservoir tank fell off its little hanger thing and ended up getting a huge hole melted into it...I have a few questions about what to do next... 1) I've tried looking around for another one but I can't seem to find one...is there a specific name for this part that I'm supposed to look up to find it? 2) I think I may have found something suitable, (http://www.zcarsource.com/content/p/9/pid/54932/catid/7691_8764/Coolant_Recovery_Bottle_75_78_used) but it's $95...is it supposed to be that expensive?
