Could be low on coolant, or a sticking thermostat, radiator fan not coming on, check for voltage there, if there no voltage possible coolant temp. sensor, relay or fuse, if there is voltage there, bad elec. fan motor.

Go to an Autozone, Oreily, or Advance auto parts store. They will scan you car for free and can reveal the Code and possible fix.

Possibly the air sensors went out of balance when there was no fresh air. Sounds like sensors read the engine as "Lean" due to lack of Oxygen and set engine to a rich setting.

The blinking engine light indicates your problems are severe and could cause more damage to the engine if not corrected. You will need to have a diagnostic scan run to retrieve the trouble codes that are causing the light to come on & flash. From those codes, repairs needed can be determined.
I hope this helps.

Making sure the fluid level is up, and there is no leaks in the cooling system, then you must have a circulation problem, Check the thermostat and water pump.

Electric cooling fan on ford five hundred not


Check the fuse for the fan and you could test to see if you have a voltage running to the fan when the car starts to overheat. If you have no power to the fan then trace the wore and see if you cant find the problem. If you have power then the fan motor is most likely bad.

Ford Taurus 1996, coolant comes out throughout the cap every time when car stops


You will overheat the engine if losing coolant.Firstly replace the cap with a new one,Is the engine temperature normal when you stop ? If its over temperature it will still blow out coolant. Check the radiator for blockage of the tubes & ensure the fan belts and water pump are in good order. Worst case is a blown head gasket can test for combustion gases in the coolant
