2003 ford focus, overheats when AC is on


Have the radiator checked for blockage and replace the thermostat. If the above doesn't cure the problem you may have a leaking cylinder head gasket

My SVT FOCUS temperature gage keeps going to the red. I changed the thermostat and it's still trying to overheat. I have a Haynes book on FOCUS 2002 to 2005 however; it does not explain how to change...


The radiator fan is most likely to blame. When the temp goes above the normal level the fan should kick on.. If it does not, you need to troubleshoot the rad fan. (Under hood etectrical box, fuse / relay/ etc.)
Also there are 2 of them (fans). The 2nd one is a booster for when the AC is on, to dissapate more heat. Try turning on the AC and see if 2nd fan kicks on. This can often help prevent serious overheating.
Good luck.

Ford 2002 focus blower motor only works on switch


You may have 2 separate problems, check the bower motor resistor first, if it's bad replace it and THEN you should have the fan blowing on the lower settings.

If the ac turns on after you fix this then problem solved, if not it may be unrelated have a pro look at the ac.

2001 Focus overheating


Both of them works when the ac is on? If so the fan motor is good. This means that maybe the temperature switch is bad. It is normal for the temperature to go 3/4 of the way up, then the fan should kick in. If it doesn't kick in then the temperature switch is bad.

Fan will not kick and wants to overheat.


I assume since it is a GT, you have ac. If you turn on the ac to max with the car running the fan should turn on no matter what the temp of the motor. If it does not, warm the motor up to OT(operating temp). You should here the fan relay click when it wants to turn on. If you dont here the click you might want to check the relay. A seperate fan relay should be under the hood in the power dis. box. It will say what relay it is. If it clicks, you might need a fan motor.....

Overheating


hello, have you ran a scan tool on it yet to see if its not your coolant temp sensor or other temp sensor if you don't own one you can have any place like auto zone run one for you for free you'll have more of a idea of whats wrong even if your cooling fan is at fault it'll let you know. when your chevy is at idol if the cooling fan is'nt kicking on then that's a good starting point,also check to make sure your anti freeze is'nt low and easy but over looked problem and your anti freeze cap could be bad and wont force the right amount to pressure through the cooling system also make sure you dont have air in your system when you changed the thermostat did you bleed the system through the bleeder valve mounted on the coolint system.and make sure your drive belt has proper tension even though you replaced the pump the drive belt has to be in good condition it drives the pump.also check your cooling fan fuse and the relay for it.

2002 Chevrolet Impala overheating while idling


the thermostates on the 3400 engines are late because the fans kick in at the last moment. if you run your ac on you will notice that the gauge stays in front of the half mark or right on the half mark. that is because when you turn on your ac your fans will kick in earlier and stay on the whole time the ac is on. if you run your car with the heat on or nothing on that leaves the late thermostate to kick in verus you turning on your ac and it by passes the thermostates and runs the fans once the engine gets at at lest 120 deg. i use to have a 2002 and i had the same problem. this will keep your engine cooler. also if you don't want your air on just turn on your windshield defrosters (not the back windshield) and that helps keep your engine cool because your defrosters use your air compressor which is really your ac. so it still kicks the fans on earlier.
