Radiator

Which way does the air flow from the radiator fan, towards the fan or does it pull air thru.

I don’t know your car, but it may have two fans which may or may not be on at the same time. In any case, in nearly all cars the design uses the air coming in the grill for part of the air flow and the other fan(s) for additional cooling and they will both push or pull the air in the same direction as the air flow caused by the motion of the car.

The fan move air through from front to back, the same as the natural airflow when the vehicle is moving.

In most vehicles the fan is behind the radiator, and pulls air through the radiator.

Thanks for the reply, have a great day.
