My 1999 ford escorts cooling fan is not working

These are normally easy to diagnose if you know a little about vehicle maintenance...Check the fan fuse/relay to begin with..Check all connections/wiring to fan...Also it has a sensor..The best way to eliminate if the fan is bad or not is to use simple jumper wires..Disconnect fan motor connector and take two jumper wires..the fan motor should have two connectors..Run one wire to hot battery post and one to negative battery post ..Connect one to hot connector of motor and one to ground..If fan doesn't work fan is faulty..

Radiator fan staying on with the car off

If it only stays on for about 5 minutes but no longer that isn't a problem, it is meant to do that. It is part of the thermo fan operation to help keep the car cool.
If it runs continuously and you have to take out the fuse or disconnect the battery then you have a serious problem.

99 ford escort running hot . i replaced the thermostat. flushed the radiator . had the synsors checked . no leaks no noice. is it my radiator?

You may need your radiator rodded and cored. But, before you do that check the relay that controls when your electric fan engages to pull air through your radiator. The sensors that control the electric fan are usually in the side tanks on the radiator. This sensor heats up and tells the fan when it needs to make the electrical connection to engage the fan to cool the radiator coolant. I would probably bet that is what is malfunctioning. They are a relatively inexpensive part. Good luck.

1999 Ford Escort - the fan is blowing but the air is no longer cold. How do I know if it just needs freon or if it is a bad compressor?

If the compressor is not engaging (the center is not spinning) then it's likely that the r134a is low in the system

Add a an or two to make it work better.

Also, make sure the radiator fan goes on when you turn the a/c on.

Good luck to you.

I have a 1997 Ford Escort and when I shut the car off the radiator fan keep running which causes my battery to die. What can I do

you need a new fan, they are meant to run for a while when you turn it off just to cool it down slowy so the rad doesnt crack in the cold. fords have a lot of bad earth wires so maybe this but I would check the wiring to the fan. its most likely caput!
