Yes a sensor will cause this also just a fuse replacement can correct this for you.. follow the hose from the radiator cap to the block, some are located there, also some built in to the radiator itself.. lower day tank on the bottom of the radiator.usually two wires + and -

Radiator fans are not working


With the switch on cross the 2 wires going to the coolant temperature sensor and if the fan comes on then replace the coolant tenp sensor.You check the fan relay by switching it with another with the same part on it in the fuse panel.

Both Cooling Fans are not working in a 2000 Taurus.


Check at the connector going to the fans for current, also connect a hot wire to the fans there to see if they are burned out.
If fans are good you may have a problem with one of the coolant temp sensors, there is one that runs the gauge, and one that signals the fans to come on

What could be causing my 2000 ford taurus to run hot


The most common problems are low coolant level, stuck thermostat, fans not working and plugged radiator. If your coolant level is good and the fan turns on when the engine gets hot, then change the thermostat and flush the radiator at the same time because the thermostat needs to come out to do a proper flush. Hope this helps.

Overheating,reserve coolant tank boiling I have a 2000 Ford Taurus with the similar problem. I had my water pump replaced then this started.


Ford 2000 Taurus

To solve the problem you have the things to do in this order;

) When the engine is cold top off the radiator with fluid. (When the pump was replaced the fluid should have been also)
) Make sure the radiator fluid has anti-freeze in it. This is also anti boil also !
) Add fluid to the overflow reservoir.
) Make sure the drive belt was replaced on the water pump.
) With the engine running, you can add fluid to the radiator for the first minute or so. You want to get air pockets out.
) Replace radiator cap.
) Let car warm up. When it's hot you should get the radiator fan coming on.
) When it get hotter the air-conditioning fan may come on.
) If the fan does not come on, the heat sensor is probably bad.
) If all fans come on, and it overheats, you may have a bad thermostat. Trace the upper radiator hose to where it connects to the engine. That's where it located.

Do not operate the engine when it overheats, You will damage the head gaskets and cause radiator fluid to leak into the cylinders.
If you smell radiator fluid in the exhaust fumes, it may already be leaking.
