The switch for the fan will be on the radiator or the thermostat housing.
It looks like a bolt head with 2 wires on it.
Connect the 2 wires together to test the wiring and relay/fuses.
If the fan works then the switch is at fault.
Simply unscrew and replace if thats the case.

Check your hose clamps for the hose that goes to the radiator and houses the thermostat. i had a loose hose so whenever the engine got hot the coolant would blow over the clamp causing it to spill everywhere. was the craziest thing however it is an inexpensive fix.

2000 lincoln ls v8 overheating again


Some cars have 2 water temperature sensors with one operating the cooling fan and the other operating dash indicators.

Since your A/C stopped working it sounds like the power may be off in a relay. Want to say go to reputable mechanic so you do not fry your engine.

You also do not want to be taken for an A/C recharge you may not need. Cooling fan should work whether A/C is off or on.

Some fans have 2 speeds so it is possible to need a replacement if only 1 speed works. You need someone to know the power routing. For instance, is the relay getting a signal from the temperature sensor? If the power is going to the relay, does it go to the fan? Is the fan bad on 1 speed or both speeds? This is independent of whether the A/C has a full charge.

Be careful of the spinning cooling fan blades if the fan turns on without warning.

What is the name of the liquid to put in the radiator to stop the overheating.


that would be coolant or anti freeze,but it dont over heating it helps keep the cooling system rust free and helps prevent overheating but it dont keep it from overheating,if your overheating there is a problem you need to deal with,check the water level,check the thermostat,are the fans turning on,is there signs of leaking around the water pump?

A/c blows out hot air


Hi,
I had a similar problem with my Corolla. My compessor clutch wasn't engaging when I turned on the AC and the fuse was good. I suspected the worst and prepared to face a replacement of a compressor, but found out the fault was an AC relay switch.

This link from Autozone, will give you a picture and price of the switch:

My relay switch was located under the hood. Check your users manual.
I hope this is your fix... a compressor is costly!
Good luck...

2004 Lincoln LS V8 overheating!!


check your radiator fan if its powering on when engine runs hot. Test if there is power at the fan's electrical connector when car is running and temp guage is at half. If there isnt any power on, check your relays and fuses. Hopefully this helps
