SOURCE: 1992 Ford Taurus with a 3.8l V6 the cooling fan

The Taurus has Two temp sensors. One for the dash, which is isolated, then one for the PCM, it also controls when the fan relay should actuate. Its a 2 wire sensor, just above the thermostat. If you remove the harness from that sensor, and the cooling fan comes on, at any temp, (should take 5- 10 seconds) then thats your fault.

Never hot wire a cooling fan on a computer run car. Check the relays fuses and resistor connector in between the two fans. They usually melt the connector. I fixed mine with two female spade connectors

My 2003 ford taurus overheats when driving around town, stop & go, but on highway temperature goes back to normal


I had the same problem with my 99 ford taurus. My ford taurus did exactly did same things that your vehicle is doing. runs cool on the freeway because the air is going through the radiator and cooling the water down.I checked the cooling fans, radiator and hoses for leaks also replaced my thermostat. nothing solved the problem. turns out that the new antifreeze does not come with a lubercant property any longer. you have to buy the lubercant additive separately and then add it to your cooling system when you replace the antifreeze. the lubercant protects your freeze plugs, water pump, radiator, thermastat from rusting out. Meanwhile because of the absents of the lubercant, my water pump impellers rusted out and dissolved. so the water pump had no fins to circulate the water. Luckly for me, I discovered that my car was still under warranty due to an extended warranty I had purchased when I bought the car. ford dealership replaced the water pump. Problem Solved.

2002 ford taurus overheats. Just replaced radiator, waterpump, thermostat and heater core. what else can i do to repair. also, ford flushed the system.


About the only thing that you didn't list is the cooling fan. Are you sure that it's working properly? Drive the car until the engine starts to get hot. After awhile you should hear the cooling fan come on. After you have driven the car for a while, park it and open up the hood. If the upper radiator hose is almost too hot to touch, then check to see if the coolant fan is running. If it isn't, then turn the AC switch to "AC MAX". If the fan still doesn't come on, then a malfunction is indicated. Try to locate the fan control relay and swap it with another relay that has the same part number. Use a relay that will allow the engine to run. Allow the engine to reach operating temperature and see if the fan comes on after switching the AC switch to "AC MAX". If the fan now operates, then replace the relay. I hope this is helpful to you. Thank you for trying Fixya.com. If this does not solve your problem, then post a comment and I will respond by getting into more advanced diagnostics.

The cooling fans are still running after car is turned off and they wont stop


There is probably an ac or cooling fan relay somewhere in one of the fuse boxes or on fan shroud. try removing it and see if it stops. If so replace relay with new one and recheck.

Does the fan always run


Cooling fans only run when the temp,of the coolant get to about 215 to 218 degrees,and shut them selves off,when the engine cools down,if they do not cut off,the engine is not cooling down,now,if the ac is on,the cooling fans will stay on until the ac is shut off.

Are both cooling fans supposed to come on with AC or is 1 temp controlled? Car starts to run warm and AC blows warm air when stopped at light. Cooling system is full with 50/50 mix


if the fans are not coming on then i would start with that, might be a problem with the fans or with what tells the fans to come on, if it runs cool while driving and warmer when sitting then it could be a couple of different things, need to check the front of your radiator/condesnor, its the thing behind your grill, make sure it nut plugged / clooged of full of bugs, if air flow cant make it through then it wont transfer heat.
