Question about 2004 Ford Freestar
Posted by Anonymous on
Check the coolant level! You may be so low that it isn't able to circulate between the engine block and radiator. Add water / coolant mixture to the radiator when the engine is *cold* and then start the engine. Continue topping off the radiator as the engine reaches normal operating temperature. Finally, add water / coolant to the warm / hot level indicator on the coolant reservoir.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Offhand it would appear that the radiator fan is not working. In some versions, either the A/C or the heater must be turned on for the radiator fan to work. In some other incidents, the fan utilizes a clutch. Common design makes use of the inverse property of silica oil to serve as the clutch. Still others have a relay that actually does the switching on of the fan. Of course it would be to your advantage to likewise check the temperature sensor on the radiator.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

your fan is the problem...it's not turning fast enough to cool the engine off. I need more info on what type of fan you have....elec fan or a clutch fan?

This is a common problem with Malibu's. It is due to cheap metal in the fuel gage that corrodes. Chevrolet knows about this but they refuse to issue a fix. The check engine light staying on and the faulty fuel gage are related. This is a defect and they need to recall this part! Raise hell with the dealership!
