SOURCE: Cooling fan wont work

The water temp sensor is located near the thermostat housing. This sensor is what tells the ECM to turn the fan on/off. The water temp sending unit is located near the same area. You know you have the correct sensor is because the water temp sensor has a 2 prong plug. The water temp sending unit only has 1 prong.

SOURCE: fuel pump relay was burnt out on mk4 escort rs

The fact that the relay was burnt, might mean you have a short in the
wiring leading to the fuel pump. Check the wiring under the car to the
back, to make sure nothing cut or damaged it while driving.

2005 ford freestar if its not water pump could it be coolant? Fixed my thermostat and still temp rises

Check the coolant level, add some if needed. If you never bled the air out or flushed the system with new coolant, that would be wise to do. Air pockets in your coolant tank can cause pressure and Temps to rise. Make sure your fans are kicking on, once your car reaches a certain temp, it hits a temp switch telling the fan to kick on. Could be faulty coolant temperature sensor as well

Check the radiator and the cooling fan. open the hood as the engine temperature rises does the fan come on. if not that the problem, Also do this As the car is warming up(from a cold start) near operating temperature, turn off the car, watch out for the fan, engine of key in your pocket fell the radiator is there any hot or cold spot? if there is the radiator is plugged. Also if the radiator isnt plugged new doesnt mean it works, the water pump itself can be faulty. and dont forget the most important device the Thermostat you did timing belt waterpump they should of done thermostat.

Sounds like you need a temp sensor for the gage. There's 2 under the hood one is a 2 wire in the intake manifold driver's side & a single wire one under the exhaust crossover pipe,also driver's side. You want to change the single wire one. Yes,it's tough. If it's still overheating quick, then it's a head gasket.
