The fan could just be dead. To test the fan apply 12 volts DC directly to the correct wires of the fan. I just replaced a dead fan in a PT Criuser.

Radiator fans randomly shut off

  • Relays carry high-amperage current controlled by a low-current switch
  • When a faulty relay is not replaced, the circuit will either be non-functional or remain engaged. here's your relay you need.

2002 ford escape temp guage says normal water will blow out of the degas bottle when engine reaches temp had to replace radiator trans cooler was leaking into radiator also replaced thermostat

Blown radiator hose? Might have blown a head gasket right there,which would continually send hot bubbles into the cooling system and degas bottle. If you see bubbles continually,it's a head gasket probably.
Might be the degas cap not releasing at 16 psi or your cooling system has air in it, OR your cooling fan is not actuating. Many things.
Also I have gotten 3 out of 5 bad thermostats from aftermarket stores. Get a Motorcraft thermostat. Did you replace with a NEW radiator?

The water tank boils a lot when the car is driven for about 15 to 20 minutes and it begins to spill out. this prevents the cars from running smoothly and easily. what should be done to solve this problem?

First check to make sure you have no oil reidue in your cooling system. What you describe is a common symptom of a blown head gasket or other combustion chamber leak. Also check your oil and make sure it doesn't have a milky appearance. If both of those check out, run the car with the radiator cap off and let it get up to normal operating temperature. You should see the coolant flowing through the radiator. If you don't see the flow at normal operating temperature, suspect the thermostat. When the car reaches normal operating temperature, the fan should also cycle on and off. If it doesn't check your fuses and relays to make sure they're OK. If they're good, try applying a seperate 12V source to the fan. If it powers up then suspect the fan's thermostatic control. Good luck.

After the vehicle is running for an hour, the vehicle get hot and shut itself off.. After it cool down, it start up. We were told it might be in the steering column.

have you replaced yor thermostat? have you checked your radiator cooling fans to see if they are coming on while your car is heating up? when your temp. guage is halfway up your fan should come on. you can check fuses and relays in fuse box[black box under hood drivers side] check those to see if fuses are blown or if fan relays are coming on[ticking while engine heating up]radiator could need flushing out also, just narrow your search some by elimination. if you open radiator cap before you start engine,then start motor, let it warm up.look for circulation,,flow of fluid,bubbling, then thats a sign it's circulating,thermostat is good. no flow means that thermostat not opening,thats bad thermostat.replace the thermostat.if not that are fans coming on? when engine at mid range on temp. guage does fan come on? if not check fuses @ fan relay. if fan comes on ,it's good.check water pump pulley for wobbly pulley while motor not running, shake pulley back @ forth for play. any play in pulley means bad water pump. are the belts on? i went through everything i would look for myself. hope this finds your problem!!!!

Radiator fan doesn't always turn on when engine gets hot

check fuses #25 and #6 (both 30 amp)
the fan thermostat is on the left side of the rad.
turn the ignition on, and after pulling back the boot, short across the two terminal with a screwdriver.

if the fan runs, fan and wiring are both good.

if it only runs when thermoswitch is shorted like this, switch needs to be replaced (get the low temp switch to prevent overheating - your temp gauge will not go over the middle position even on the hottest days; also get a low temp thermostat,and ALWAYS get a Saab stat, not an after market!)

if the fan doesn't run when switch is shorted, check for valtage between green wire and ground at the switch.

Voltage indicates faulty fan, if no voltage then check the fan relay J in the main fuse box.
