Question about 1996 Ford Taurus
If this is bad will the service engine light come on. I have an overheating problem. Thermostat has been replaced and water pump is good. Guage inside car is halfway up, when car is cold and unused. Car overheats when driven, not while idling. Thanks , Have A Great Day!
Temperature sending unit perhaps?
I doubt if it is the temperature sensor if the gauge is working. Check to see if the fans are coming on when the engine is hot. The fans have two speeds and should come on in low speed and change to high speed as temperature gets hotter or when air conditioner is turned on. If they are working correctly. I would guess the radiator is partially plugged up between the air conditioner condensor and the radiator. These cars are bad about getting dirt, lint, and what ever trapped in this area.
