Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Just got it back from from shop last week was running great but when i tried 2 drive it its started running hot over 3/4 when i got on an incline then only dropped when i came 2 a stop. i put it in the shop cuz i had blown head gasket and header seals.
Take it back to the shop for more repair. There are one or two sensors for the water temperature. One operates the dash gauge and the other operates the electric cooling fan. They could be improperly installed or connected.
If the shop replaced the cooling fan, and if it is good, then it may not be activating properly. Some of the fans have a relay on the fan shroud, some have a relay in the Powerbox for the Radiator fan. If the Relay was bad, then that may have caused the whole problem in the first place.
You can get a diagram of the wires and powerbox by registering your car at Autozone.com for FREE. But you usually get 3000 miles or 30 days minimum on a repair. 90 days is more common because most parts will have at least 90 days of Warranty.
