The engine suction fan speed is controlled electronically based on demand. It will always run when the AC is on, faster when cooling demands rise. It will also run fast when the coolant temperature rises above 90C.

Yes sir thank you, but i noticed that when i changed the a/c compressor the fan started going faster than normal and on the button inside the car labeled auto when i press it the fan goes really fast it sounds like a plane is about to take off

Is it very hot outside and is your AC running on "max"? If so, the fan is doing what it's supposed to - draw as much air possible across the condenser for maximum cooling.

That actually may be normal. The fan speed is adjusted according to demand. When you say the AC is set on "three" do you mean the fan speed? It's more the needs of cooling to reach the set temperature that is the issue. It's a function of outside ambient temp and cabin temp.
