99 ford escort running hot . i replaced the thermostat. flushed the radiator . had the synsors checked . no leaks no noice. is it my radiator?

You may need your radiator rodded and cored. But, before you do that check the relay that controls when your electric fan engages to pull air through your radiator. The sensors that control the electric fan are usually in the side tanks on the radiator. This sensor heats up and tells the fan when it needs to make the electrical connection to engage the fan to cool the radiator coolant. I would probably bet that is what is malfunctioning. They are a relatively inexpensive part. Good luck.

Engine cooling fan not coming on ,fan motor is good

Check the fan relay, it is the only relay inside the power distribution box, under hood on the lefthand fender just behind the air cleaner box. This relay sometimes has bad or dirty connections. Also check the temperature sending unit that activates this relay, it is located in the heater hose directly under the ignition coil, the hose runs between the thermostat housing and the firewall, there are two sensors here the single wire sensor is for the dash guage. Hope this helps, let me know.

Changed timing belt on my 99 ford escort zx2 car no

if you have a no spark scenario i would check your crank sensor located at the top left side of the harmonic balance pulley.the crankshaft (about 11'oclock) a 2 wire plug with a sensor on it check to see if it is damaged or unsecured. this sensor can cause no spark if not working correctly. This sensor is based of frequency not voltage testing is difficult, just make sure that there isnt too muck air gap. and that it is secured.Lastly may want to check timing possible that the belt has jumped some teeth and she has fallen out of timing. maybe a bad tensioner The coil will adapt i think up to 10 degree, ****** or advance. Good luck

Fan does not work ,heater fan does not blow or come on to defrost window.

My first line of action would be to check the fuse for the fan motor. Your owners manual should direct you to the fuse panel location. Hopefully, that's all that's wrong.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

Cooling fan comes on late in my 1994 ford escort 1.9

My 94 Escort had a problem with the fan relay connections at the relay, I had to remove it and the wires connected to it from the distribution box, this is complicated and not normal, but to check your relay, you will find it in the distribution box on the left fender close to the front underhood. The temp sensor is located in the steel portion of the heater line bolted to the block at the back of the cylinder head under the intake tube, there are two sensors there one for the guage and the other for the fan relay. Hope this helps, let me know

Can't find a bypass hose for a 1999 ford escort

If you want to bypass the heater core, easiest was is to remove both hoses from the heater core, get a hose connector and 2 hose clamps.

Other than that, you could buy a few feet of some heater hose at your local auto parts store, and go from the water pump to the thermostat housing (although this would bypass your temerature sensors, would probablly cause a check engine light, and may prevent your cooling fan from working properly).

I don't see any parts store anywhere offering a "single" bypass hose, nor have I heard of one for this vehicle. If you do need to bypass it, your solution is above.

I hope this information helps you, and I do wish you luck on your repair.
