My 01 ford escape is registering a problem with the radiator light coming on but the temp remains on half.the fan seems to run constantly and sometimes the radiator reservoirbacks up to overfull


I think that your temp gauge or sender is faulty. Check that the radiator isn't blocked with corrosion. Pop the cap when cold and start it. Let it warm until the thermostat opens and make sure that you have plenty of flow in the radiator. If the radiator is blocked, you will get a sudden flow of water out of the cap when the thermostat opens. Another issue can be a broken/corroded water pump impeller.

Were is the thermostat to a 2001 ford escape


Look for "upper" radiator hose about 2" hose, follow back from radiator to engine block. The outlet from the engine which feeds into the Radiator hose contains the Thermostat (for the Engine) underneath it. But are you sure you need to change it?

The bearing may be failing in the fan motor causing the noise, there could be a restriction in the air flow thru the radiator too.

FORD ESCAPE 2001 CONTINUES TO HEAT


Have you checked the thermo fans are cutting in and out. It may be the switch at the botom of the radiator or someone may have left the wire to the fan disconected probably when replaceing the radiator. or the A/C condensor might be blocked with grass stopping the air flow.

I have a 2001 Ford Escape. The warning light for the rad comes on after the truck has run for 10 or 15 minutes - have checked all the levels and everything is good. Any ideas?


You may have a bad sensor in the resevior. You can try tapping on the resevior and see if sensor comes free and light stays off. The coolant level sensor or collant temp sensor could be bad.

Changed expansion tank but light still on any ideas 03 ford escape low coolant level light on dash stays lightup


bad low coolant switch or still low on coolant.

Engine Cooling The cooling system components are the:
  • engine coolant temperature sensor (ECT sensor) (12A648)
  • radiator (8005)
  • degas bottle (8A080)
  • radiator draincock (8115)
  • water pump (8501)
  • water temperature indicator sender unit (10884)
  • water thermostat (8575)
  • dual speed fan motor assembly
The water pump circulates the coolant.
The water thermostat:
  • controls the engine coolant temperature.
  • allows quicker engine warm-up.
The degas bottle:
  • provides a location for fill.
  • contains coolant expansion and system pressurization.
  • provides air separation during operation.
  • replenishes the engine coolant to the system.
The fan motor (8C607):
  • operates only when the ignition switch is in the RUN position.
  • will not operate with the switch in the OFF position.
The engine coolant flows:
  • from the lower radiator hose (8286) to the water pump.
  • from the water pump to the engine block and the cylinder heads.
A closed water thermostat returns the engine coolant to the water pump; an open water thermostat allows the engine coolant to flow to the radiator.
Engine coolant provides freeze protection, boil protection, cooling efficiency and corrosion protection to the engine and cooling components. In order to obtain these protections, the engine coolant must be maintained at the correct concentration and fluid level in the degas bottle.
When adding engine coolant, use a 50/50 mixture of clean, drinkable water and engine coolant.
To maintain the integrity of the coolant and the cooling system:

After replacing the thermosat, is there a special procedure to refill the radiator, since there is no radiator cap


No, just put it in the container marked coolant on the cap to full line, start engine, wait for thermostat to open, (getting heat), then refill to full line.

Check coolant level in the recovery tank, if full probably a bad level sensor. Part of the tank.
