SOURCE: ford ranger truck overheating

I have had this happen with my ranger. Changed everything I could to try to fix the over heating. It turned out that I had a small leak in my head gasket and it was allowing exsaust gas to go into the cooling system witch was over pressurizing it. Also the air from the exsaust will heat up much faster than liquid making your thermostat to read hot and will not be able to blow hot air in the cab because there is no liquid going to the heater core. This happened to me when my blet came off and I tryed to make it home. If you had it over heat for a long peirod of time it may have ripped the head gasket.

SOURCE: my ford 2005 explorer sport trac the windows don't work.

You may want to check the relay that goes to the primary window. This will provide support to all the other windows. However, it may not just be the window relay, it could possibly be that between your window relay and your main switch there is a short or cut wire that is causing this problem. Unfortunately, you may need to visit your Ford Dealership to run a diagnostic on your wire or if you know an electronic shop that can run one to see if it is receiving and sending power. Have them check the main door fuse and window assembly to see that you are getting power.

SOURCE: where is the resistor in a 2001 ford explorer

You have to remove your glove box and it is behind there. Here is a picture of where it is. This particular picture is from a 4 X 4 so if you don't have that it won't have the 4X4 part. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for using FixYa!5877c26.jpg

DOES 2001 SPORT TRAC HAVE A COOLANT BLEEDER SCREW


Is it possible you only recently noticed this? All vehicles have a "lamp test" and or gauges test when the key is first switched on, Check your owners manual. If the engine isn't overheating you're chasing a non-problem and that's good because you can stop without spending another dime on the issue.

2004 Ford Explorer Sports Trac overheating. I cant find anything that shows any signs of leaking. I've changed the thermostat twice, flushed the radiator and also changed the clutch in the fan to...


Did the engine overheat before the water pump was replaced? If so, you may have a warped cylinder head and/or blown head gasket.

Was the radiator full of rusty-colored liquid before you flushed it? If so, your radiator is probably restricted with rust deposits in the cooling tubes. Flushing WILL NOT get this stuff out. The radiator MUST be replaced if this is the case. Your heater core is probably not in real good shape either, so you should be expecting some heating problems this winter.

If the above is not the correct answer, then you should check to make sure the temperature gauge is not "LYING" to you. This could be caused by a defective gauge, a bad temperature sending unit, or faulty wiring.

The way to check this is with a scan tool that can read engine data and an infrared thermometer. While reading the coolant temperature data from the computer, check the cylinder head temperature with the infrared thermomometer. The readings you get should be within 5 degrees (F) of each other. If the computer data does not match the thermometer within the 5 degrees, then the sending unit for the computer should be replaced.

Then look at the gauge to see if the gauge reading is appropriate to the temperature readings that you took. Normal operating temperature is between 190 and 230 degrees. This should place the gauge at slightly to the right of center to about 5/8ths of the way to HOT. If the readings you took are OK and the gauge is reading higher than this, then you should try replacing the temperature sending unit for the gauge and see if that fixes the problem.

Please note that there are TWO temp sending units: One for the gauge and one for the computer.

Ford Explorer 2006 Overheating


Who determined that the water pump and radiator needed to be replaced? If it was the dealer or an independent garage, bring it back and tell them they guessed wrong. You paid to have the problem fixed and they need to stand behind their work.

This is a problem that's hard to diagnose without being able to check a lot of items and ask questions, but the obvious things to look for if you have a new radiator and water pump (and hopefully a new thermostat) is for air in the cooling system which keeps the coolant from circulating. Also check to see that the cooling fan(s) are operating properly.

Leaking anti freeze


Sound like the tube that connects your heater core to the water supply from radiator. On Fords these tube are metal and very oftern rust out and need to be replaced. This is located behind and to the right (passenger) side of the engine.
