As a rule, car radiator is paired with a cooling fan that blows air through the radiator to perform one of the most crucial tasks, and it is to cool the engine. The fan increases the air mass that flows through the radiator core and thus prevents the engine heat from destroying the radiator itself, as well as seals, gaskets, hoses, etc. Belt-driven and electric fans are two general types of cooling fan systems. The latter type is more beneficial because it doesn’t rob so much horsepower from the engine.
The Flex-a-lite electric fan is made of the most durable materials to provide years of hassle-free service. This apparatus is a great way to get back the horsepower and torque that your stock, engine-driven fan takes away. Besides, if you’re the one who drives a ton of miles every month, you know that fuel is an issue. The Flex-a-lite fan will help you optimize gas mileage as well. The package also includes the aluminum shroud that covers the entire core ensuring the maximum temperature drop. The shroud has one more important purpose: it secures the fan blades and thus protects other essential components in your engine from potential damage.
Replacing your leaky or non-functioning fan with the Flex-a-lite unit is that easy. Meticulously crafted by the Flex-a-lite experts, the part bolts right in place of your factory power-robbing blades. After a hassle-free installation, you’ll enjoy the many benefits for the years to come. Besides numerous significant advantages over your OEM fan as well as those average no-name versions, the Flex-a-lite Electric Fan is backed by an unbeatable one-year warranty that will give you the confidence you deserve.
Flex-a-lite® is a third-generation business that has been in the automotive industry for over half a century. In 1962, Eddy Davis, who was an Army Air Corps pilot in England during the Second World War, set up Flex-a-lite with the original ‘flex fan’ concept. The company is currently based in Fife, Washington, and run by Lisa Chissus, Eddy’s granddaughter. Lisa is the one who invented the now patented Flex-a-fit radiator sidetank design that provides superior heat transfer. Though Flex-a-lite continues to look for innovative performance cooling solutions, one thing that hasn't changed since the company's foundation is that all products are still engineered and manufactured in the USA, with American hands.
