SOURCE: 1992 Ford Taurus Overheating

Thermostat is faulty.
It can be found by grabbing the top radiator hose and following back to the engine. The housing this hose is clamped to is the thermostat housing. Remove the 2 bolts, and the cover o reveal the thermostat.
It should cost less than $20 for a thermostat and gasket.
Replace it and your overheating isues will go away.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated.

SOURCE: overheating engine in 24 valve 96 ford taurus 6 cyl

the thermostat can be easily changed from up top, the T-stat is located at the engine end of the upper radiator hose under the flange the hose connects to. Make sure u follow manufacturer's cooling system bleeding procedures when you refill after the T-stat is changed out.

It sounds to me like your radiator fan(s) may not be working. There are 2. Both should come on when the A/C is turned on. If not, then the fan circuit needs to be verified for proper function before replacing the radiator fan motor(s).

Change the sensor. Check the electric cooling fans and Relays. Some fans have 2 speeds and may not kick into high speed.
The radiator operates more or less closely to the block temperature. A Laser thermometer would tell you what the operating temperature is.

The cooling fan on my 2001 ford escort SE will not work normally


Check the coolant temperature with the car stopped. At idle with the hood up keep the thermometer in the coolant. Confirm if the coolant is not overheating but the engine is!!

Run the A/C keeping the thermometer in the coolant and allow the fan to kick on.

If with the A/C on the engine doesn't overheat then it confirms that the low speed on the fan motor is not working. Read the description of the Taurus where the low speed is used for normal operation when temperature is required but the high speed is activated when the A/C is on. The circuit is simple.

In your case the low speed has to be activated for the A/C to go into the high speed. The fact that the high speed is working and low speed is not indicates the low speed of the fan is defective.

Other problems such as the thermostat or plugged cooling system(radiator clogged) could be the root problem!

Hope this helps?

You are mis fireing on cyl 1 and 3 if you replaced plugs and wires and coil this is going to be a fuel injector issue or valve issue. See if you can swap the injectors with known good cyl. and see if it changes. Or have a shop do a fuel injector service on it to see if it helps. It may be to late for the fuel injector service.

1996 ford tarus location of coolant temperatue sensor?


I doubt if it is the temperature sensor if the gauge is working. Check to see if the fans are coming on when the engine is hot. The fans have two speeds and should come on in low speed and change to high speed as temperature gets hotter or when air conditioner is turned on. If they are working correctly. I would guess the radiator is partially plugged up between the air conditioner condensor and the radiator. These cars are bad about getting dirt, lint, and what ever trapped in this area.
