Radiator cooling fans stopped working 1998 ford contour 2.5 liter

some of you might be familiar with me as i asked a couple questions about this particular car's transmission last week. its a 1998 ford contour GL. equipped with a 2.0 liter zetec 16 valve 4 cylinder and a 4 speed automatic transmission. i bought the car last week to fix it and sell it. so, today i finished giving it a mild tune up. ive changed the oil and filter, transmission fluid, fuel filter, air filter, added lucas transmission stop slip, and fuel injector cleaner. so, after finishing up the transmission fluid change, i let the car idle for about 10 minutes until it got up to its normal operating temperature. then it started to overheat, then its temperature went back down into the normal range, but yet it was too close to the hot range for comfort. i turned the heater all the way on and it didnt make too much of a dramatic difference. as i looked over the engine compartment, and felt the upper radiator hose to see if the thermostat had opened up fully, i noticed that the electric radiator cooling fans werent on at all. so, im assuming that thats what the problem is. my question for you is: besides checking the fuses, what else is there to look for to see why the car's cooling fans arent kicking on? im still really unfamiliar with fords late model cars. im pretty fed up with this one already. thanks for your input.

I need to know the engine size of my ford contour 1998. It has 4 doors and 4 cylinders

the 1998 ford contour came with two engines the 2.0 engine which is a four cylinder or the 2.5 engine which is a v6 engine, if your not sure how to tell the diffrence then this will help you, take your insurance card for the car and look at the id or vin # some call it the id # and some the vin # look at the number and there are letters also in the id #, start at the left of the id# and count to the 8th digit and if its a G or an L then you have a v-6 engine which is a 2.5 liter, if the 8th digit is a 3 then you have a 4 cylinder engine which is a 2.0 liter, hope this is helpful, good luck.

Does changing the oil on a 1998 Ford Contour require any special treatment?

No, none whatsoever. Just drain the oil, oil the filter gasket, and install a new quality filter such as Motorcraft, Bosch, or Purolator. Pour in the correct amount of the correct weight oil and you are done.
