You have an Electric cooling fan. Most cooling fans have 2 speeds and if the high speed is not working, eventually the low speed will not keep up and you will overheat.

The cooling fan depends on Electric relays and a temperature sensor on the motor. This sensor on the motor can be different than the sensor that makes your dash gauge work. Go to Autozone or Orellys for a free scan and view the part you need.

If possible, when the engine is cold take off the Radiator cap and have it tested for the amount of Pressure it will hold before letting the coolant go to the overflow. When the engine is running turn on the heater in case you have an airlock in the water system.

I have a 2002 Ford Explorer Sport no heat but the fan works,what could the problem be?


Could be that the thermostat has packed up...

Check all your coolant levels are correct and then take her for a good run out....keep your eyes on the temperature gauge,,if your temp gauge hardly moves then your thermostat is at fault....replace it.

If temp gauge works fine, you may be airlocked in your heater matrix... Try setting heater to full heat with fan on full power,, whilst car is ticking over, remove radiator / expansion bottle cap carefully and start squeezing your coolant pipes. This should force any air out through your rad/bottle top..

Please be aware that as your temperature rises in the engine. Your coolant will expand and start to flow out of the rad/expansion bottle..at this stage quickly replace the cap....check your heater...leave engine to cool....unscrew rad/bottle cap, check coolant levels, top up if necessary and squeeze pipes again..start car with heater/fan on full and repeat above.....

Hope this helps..

How do i replace the coolant in my 96 dodge caravan after i flush the system


Make sure all the drains are closed, start filling the rad and allow the coolant time to drain down, then fill again. Keep filling the rad unit it no longer drains down, just make sure to stop filling it when the level in the rad is just barely visible when looking down inside it. Now fill the overflow bottle to the lowest level mark. Start the car and turn you heater on to full heat. Let it warm up to proper temp, may/may not need to put more in rad. Keep an eye on the level in the rad it will expand and may overflow, if it looks like it will overflow use yout tester to remove some fluid. Once you see the coolant flowing throug the rad wait a few minutes, then put the rad cap on. Let it run a few more minutes to get the rest of the air out, then drive like normal. Check the fluid level in the overflow bottle (engine cold) over the next few days fill to proper level as needed.

Replace ther fan rad water pump even put elec fan on still heating up


Have you replaced the rad cap or the thermos stat? If so you may have an air lock within the system which would require you to run the car for 10 to 15 mins with out the rad cap on this should remove the air lock..

My son's 95 ford taurus keeps overheating and he doesn't have any heat, seems to have coolant in the radiator, would it be a thermastat problem?


It is probably low on coolant or is air locked. Make sure the rad is full to the top and there is coolant in the overflow bucket. When you put the rad cap on, do not tighten it all the way. Just turn it on past the first stop. Run the car with the cap loose like that for a couple days and keep checking the coolant level in the rad. Keep the heater turned on as well and the cooling system should fill and force the air out. After a couple of days the rad should stay full and you can tighten the cap to it's proper position. Hope this helps.

Cooling system problem


well it might overheat because air got into system, replace the thermostant and then fill system, run van keepin an eye on the temp, it will start to run hot because coolant has not filled the motor just the radiator, when it starts running hot shut it down, wait 3 minutes and start, now this is done with cap off,after restart coolant should get sucked in get filling radiator as needed,may get messy but got to bleed cooling system. hope thius helps.

No heat /new heater core / new control /new thermo/ ?


Did you re-fill coolant with heater turned on ?(not defrost) Leave rad or coolant return bottle cap off when engine cold, and turn heater on and add coolant as needed to keep level up. Let engine get to normal operating temperature, and wait for rad fan to kick in and out, indicating thermostat has opened, and coolant is circulating. Let that fan kick in 2 or 3 times and keep adding coolant as needed, and check heat periodically to see if starting to throw heat. When your getting good heat, put cap back on, top up return bottle, and you should be good. I suspect an airlock in heater core. I don't see the year anywhere so I'm guessing you have a rad cap, and if that is the case, leave it off as described, and watch for increased flow in rad when it gets up to normal operating temperature, which tells you thermostat is opening. Watch for that flow, 2 or 3 times, and you should be getting heat by then. If that isn't cure, get back to me with more info on year, engine etc. Keep me posted on your progress.

Location of thermostat


Did you run the engine with rad cap off & heater (not defrost) on while topping up the coolant. If not, do it & let it run that way until your rad fan comes on & off about 3 times, then top rad up to a inch or 2 from top, and put cap back on, & check level in return bottle.
