Question about 1991 Ford Aerostar Extended
I have a 1991 Ford Aerostar Eddie Bauer Edition with a 4.0 Engine in it and it is also Automatic 4 Wheel Drive. Recently, it developed a short in the steering column, mainly the turn signals while I was driving it home from a family gathering. By the time I got it home, the engine had overheated and the head blew on the motor.
This is a recall on these cars and I was wondering if the short in the steering column would have caused the overheating in order for the head to crack because prior we hadn't had any problems with the van at all. The previous owner never had the recall taken care of, but I doubt they would fix it now???
Does anyone have any insight on this???
I am no mechanic, but I cant see a direct correlation between an electrical short and overheating.
I had a bad water pump on my van and never overheated due to the mechanical fan that is on the main shaft that turns the pullies and such.
Sounds, unfortunately, like a freak coincidence. Sorry
