You could do this ... if you can stand it ... turn off the AC and turn on the heat. Open the windows. This should add about 15% efficiency to the car engine cooling system when so employed. This was the technique I used on cars I had as a new teen driver because I couldn't afford to put in a new radiator (longer ago than you want to know).

You could also remove the trans cooler (dont actually remove it ... just stop using it by installing ... ) from the radiator and install a aux cooler.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com

Can someone help me on locating my c?oling fan switch on my 2003 ford escape.


Cooling fan switch ? The cooling fans on your vehicle are computer controlled . Relay's energized by PCM - engine computer . Coolant temp sensor is a input to the PCM ,when the temp. reaches 212 degress the PCM will energize the low speed fan relay ,if temp reaches 250 degress the PCM will energize the high speed cooling fan relay . Hooking up a scan tool an checking coolant temp. sensor data to the PCM and checking control from the PCM ( energizings relay's ) Is how to diagnose this . Not replacing parts and hope you fix the problem . Your best bet take it to a qualified repair shop.

Lady friend has a 2006 escape hybrid; she just had problem of overheat; same as I had with my 2007; she went to Ford Dealer; they said it was a recall issue; fixed it for free. I paid a "Christian Brothers"
garage to fix mine; had no idea about a recall; (and bought mine from a Ford Dealer;!) but was not near a Ford Dealer at the time; both problems were the same and related to the hybrid system.

Temperature guage not working and engine overheated when stopped in trafic


The powertrain computer turns the fans on through the cooling fan relays, based on information from the coolant temperature sensor. The fans will only come on when the coolant temp. is pretty high-varies by manufacturer, but it is over 200 degrees, some as much as 230 degrees. So the fans will not come on when engine is started, but they should come on before the engine overheats. You should have them checked. Also find out if the temp. gauge sending unit is separate and different from the coolant temperature sensor-on most cars, they are separate, maybe not on yours?
Free advice from a shadetree-not worth a lot, eh? lol.

2003 ford escape fans do not run in till the a/c is turned on.


There are four relays for the cooling fans .low speed control , medium speed , high speed fan control relay 2 , high speed fan control relay 1, there is also a engine cooling fan resistor .The engine coolant temp. sensor would most likely cause the check engine light to be on . There is also a dual pressure switch , this is for the A/C . The cooling fans will be turned on at 213 degress low speed , high speed at 226 degress . If you had factory scan tool or a professional type you could view coolant temp data in pcm , you could also energize the relays to see if the system is operating normally . There are other repair shops beside dealers

2001 mustang...6 cylinder. Car overheats at slow driving speeds with ac on. Temp goes to the H on temp guage, but not over redline but almost. Electric fan running. Ford dealer flushed radiator and changed...


Check that the water pump drive belt is tight
Check that the cylinder head is not blowing.
Check the impleor on the water pump is not eroded
Check theair flow through the radiator is ok.
Check electric cooling fans operates if fitted.
Are you driving in to low a gear?
Are the brakes draging?
Check to see if you have some contaninated fuel
Check that the correct ignition time is ocurring at all engine speeds.

Best of luck Cliff UK

Air Conditioner stops blowing cold air when vehicle is not moving


plus one on the cooling fan problem. if it was low on charge then as you slow down, condensor temps and line prressures would raise therefore it would cool at low speed and and not when moving since the incoming air would drop system temp,reducing line pressure and then cusing compressor to cycle. the auxillary cooling fans must be on whenever a/c is on, if not, thats your problem. get this taken care of because if you get stuck in traffic, your engine will overheat also if fans are not running
