Question about 1998 Mercury Mountaineer
How much trouble is it to replace the plastic fan on 1998 Mercury Mountaineer. Just pull off the shoud and remove the bolts holding on the fan?
If it's anything like my 1999 Mercury Mountaineer, you will probably have to pull the fan/clutch assembly off with the fan attached. Then you can remove the fan. You can purchase a fan/clutch wrench set at a local auto parts store for around $20. The fan/clutch assembly can be removed with the fan shroud at the same time.

Physically look in the radiator under the cap when cool, for coolant level, and check the valve in the cap for sticking. If air is present in the radiator it can't get out, and more coolant can't get in,(from the overflow). Either clean the cap or replace it and check that it is the CORRECT cap.
If radiator is low on coolant fill it to overflowing, replace cap, and check that coolant overflow is filled to the COLD line or mark. The overflow is normally where you would add coolant.
Radiator fins dirty, clean with a strong stream of water, not high pressure water.
Radiator clogged, try backflushing it, or replace.
Thermostat stuck open or shut, replace it.
Water pump worn out, can no longer move enough coolant, replace it.
Fan shroud broken or missing....
Electric Fan(s) not working, Check the fan, relay, fuse and engine temperature sensor's.
Belt driven fan, belt slipping, fan clutch is bad, fan blades have flattened out.
Air dam under front bumper is gone, loose, or broken. It actually has a purpose other than scraping on the driveway or curbs. It forces air up into and thru the condenser and radiator. If it's loose, airflow can actually push it out of place making it useless or blocking the airflow. Along with that, there may also be a plastic piece attached to the bottom of, and wraps up behind the bumper. If it

Hold the fan clutch steady with a fan clutch wrench and disconnect the fan using a fan hub wrench. Notice the fan remains held in the engine compartment by the fan shroud...
Remove the two bolts securing the fan shroud to the radiator, with a ratchet and socket. Pull the fan shroud and fan blade assembly from the engine compartment.
