Question about 1995 Ford Escort
I recently had the water pump replaced due to the timming belt breaking. I did not realize that the gear the belt rides on was related to the timing belt.....anyways. Since I had it replaced at first the fan motor would turn on when starting the car and then it just quit. Now the car over heats worse than what it did before. This gets frustrating and now Im trying to see if I can replace the thermostat or anything that I can.
Could someone tell me where about the thermostat could be located or sensors ? Im tired of dealing with this but can not buy a car yet.
You input would be great if you can.
Have a Great Day everyone......
No! However, save your money! This problem (engine overheating cooling fan not working) apparently is inherent to Ford vehicles and it appears that it (the complex "overheating/cooling fan malfunctioning problem) is and was "Engineered" in by Ford Motor Company! Since many such Ford vehicles are having this same problem I can only deduct that they (Ford) "built it in" to their cars! None of the repair manuals nor Ford's literature address this problem and it "secret" repair solution, although, there is a SOLUTION Ford and its dealers are keeping it to themselves! The problem is ELECTRICAL as its solution, once you have eliminated all the MECHANICAL items associated with the engine cooling system, as I have done, there remains only "SECRETED SOLUTION"! Oh for that dummy that says "thermostat controller" there is no such thing. The thermostat is a temperature operated mechanical device that opens it orifice when the water in the engine block is heated to the engines' operating temperature. Yes the thermostat can and may cause overheating if it fails to open or sticks shut, however, once you have replaced the radiator, pump, temperature sensors (plural, because there are at least two on a 95 Escort and other Ford models one sends temp to the in dash instrument and the other controlles the cooling relay and sends infor to the onboard computer and/or EEC, etc.). For the person asking where is the thermostat - Follow the top radiator hose back to the engine there in that aluminum bell shaped housing that bolts onto the engine head/block you will find the thermostat. Follow the tubing/hose that come out from that housing towards the "firewall" and there you will see to electrical connections attached to the two coolant temperature sending sensors, one goes to the dash the other either to the EEC or the cooling fan relay in the fuse box in the Engine compartment!!!
