The cooling fan is turned on by the computer using the output it receives from a sensor called the ECT, if this sensor was the problem the fan would run constandly by default.

SOURCE: coolant sensor location

On the 98 2.4 the coolant level switch is located on the bottom side of the coolant recovery tank. The switch contains a reed switch and a magnetic float. When the coolant level is normal, the float rests away from the reed switch, causing the switch to be open. When the coolant level decreases in the coolant recovery tank below a specified level, the float rests on the reed switch and the switch closes, illuminating the LOW COOLANT light.

2005 ford freestar if its not water pump could it be coolant? Fixed my thermostat and still temp rises


Check the coolant level, add some if needed. If you never bled the air out or flushed the system with new coolant, that would be wise to do. Air pockets in your coolant tank can cause pressure and Temps to rise. Make sure your fans are kicking on, once your car reaches a certain temp, it hits a temp switch telling the fan to kick on. Could be faulty coolant temperature sensor as well

How do I change a waterpump on 2005 ford freestar van


Remove the fan while coolant is draining into a bucket. Remove the belt. Once that's all out of the way you can get to the water pump. Remove the lower radiator hose from the pump and the water line to the heater core from the pump. Now remove the securement bolts and remove the water pump.

Hey, I'm working on a 2004 Ford Freestar van with a coolant problem. There is no consistency, it happens at low and high speeds. While driving the temp gauge goes from its normal running position,...


do you have access to a good scanner (that reads engine parameters like engine temp?)-your gauge could be bad, you might have an intermittent problem with the cooling fan (connector?), your thermostat could be hanging open or closed, or you might have air in the cooling system.

2005 Ford Freestar has started contantly beeping when in any gear except park. Sounds like it is coming from inside - in the back of the van. Any suggestions?


I have the same problem we got the van checked there is NOTHING wrong with the engine. it just randomly beeps its a set of 5 beeps about 4 times. its seems like it could be a check engine sound but no lights are on the dash.

How to replace engine coolant temp sender on a 4.2L 2005 Freestar


I am not a Ford guy but I am going to take a shot at this. The switch should be on the intake manifold around the front of the engine or in the front of the engine just below the intake where the radiator hose goes into the water pump. A few of the videos I researched for this answer showed the switch under the truck and screwed into the exhaust manifold but I do not believe yours is there but just in case the other two don't work look there. If all of this fails do a search on goggle for "Where is the temp sw located on a 2005 4.2 liter ford freestar." Hope this helps and I have not confused the issue.
