When is the last time the oil was changed? Is the coolant level OK?

comment What is the Magic ON temperature for Electric Fans?
Not sure how old your car is, Brian, but I know the chemical characteristics of the goo those sensors use can change characteristics as the parts get older. You might be able to change out the sensor and have your fan turn on when it is expected. Also, if your car is like my truck, it could have a separate sensor for the gauge in the dash. In that case, the gauge sensor could be off.

A 1994 Nissan D21 w/ VG30e. Did not come with electric fan, but I am installing one from a 1993 Nissan Altima. So far, I have it installed CLICK and this thermoswitch relay ready to go on. Just ran out of time today.

Are you just guessing at 185°? That's how I came up with that value. I'm looking for a definite answer. When a car manufacturer builds a vehicle with an electric fan, that fan is set to turn on at a specific temperature. Given a 180° thermostat (optional 170°F thermostat), I'd like to know what temperature an electric fan should be set to turn on.

comment Does “DOT and SAE approved” apply across the United States?
+1. To add, you could find SAE and DOT stamps for side marker lights, but that doesn't mean you could use them for brake lights or turn signals.

Why'd you take an upside down picture?

comment shifting stops when critically low on gas
I doubt it. But, I spend a lot of time on the Nissan Hardbody forum, and Nissan has coded in some strange behaviors whenever it gets bad readings from sensors. It could be that you have water in the bottom of the tank.

comment Steering Wheel Shake New Car Performance Tires
I'm voting for a bad rim. The balancer shows everything is A-OK, but the inside is still a different weight than the outside.

comment Why do tires get bigger over the years?
I say it's all a sham! Tire places know you have to pay more for their 20-inch tires than the standard 14 and 15 inch tires, so they buddy up with the auto makers to ensure they stick oddball sized wheels on new vehicles. Everyone makes money but you.

How low is this? I have seen auto manufacturers wire up some odd stuff in the electronics to ensure the owner's do something, but this is certainly odd - like an unknown bug!
