Default 1993 Protege radiatory fan no worky

Just posted this in the general forum. Sorry for dual posts. I'll try deleting the other...

Hi,

Here I am approaching another summer with my trusty beater. 1993 Protege with about 280k miles, and it looks like every one of those miles were hard. I should post pictures so you all can have a good laugh. Been with this girl for fourteen years. Paid $1400 for it back then. It's been super cheap transpo all these years. Anyhoo...

I've been living with the radiator fan not working for about three years. I keep thinking I'm about to be done with this car, but I just keep on keeping on with it. About a year ago I did the jumper test that confirmed the fan spins, so I bought a new relay but that didn't fix it. A year later (Today) I tried that jumper test again and fan no spinny, so I disconnected the fan and ran 12VDC directly to it and it spins. I then did the current test, supposed to be 6.6 +/- 1, and it read 4.3. My fan motor seems out of spec, but is that enough for it to not work at all? I hate dumping even a penny into this car, and don't want to buy a fan motor unnecessarily. But at the same time I loath going another summer with the radiator fan not working. What do folks here think?

BTW, the temp gauge works.

Thank you!
Gary

Still hopeful someone might have an idea on my radiator fan issue. It's going to be warm soon. I'm thinking about just putting in a new fan and see what happens.
