I have a possible solution... Have you had the cars computer checked to see if it may be that the computer is not telling the fan to turn on? I will also look into a possible alterantive answer to this as well.

Overheating


do a full system flush on the radiator and engine and the lines to the heater. flush them out. also change the thermostat and the temp switch, the temp switch sensor is the one with only one wire on it with either a 11mm or 13mm head on it depending what one was fitted. after it is flushed reconnect the pipes add the water and antifreeze, when all clean in the system the water should come out clean. 50/50 water antifreeze should be used. leave the top off the header tank and run the engine with the heater on number one. keep squashing the pipes as the engine warms up to help get the air out and keep the header tank full to the top. when the fan kicks in to cool the rad turn off the engine and leave to cool down when cool top up to the line and put the cap back on. wile you are doing the bleeding you should see the temp go up. if the heat goes to or above a 100 and the fan does not come on then the fan switch or motor may need changing, thermostats last for around 5 years, temp switches can last up to 5 years temp switch for the fan can be around 3 to 8 years.

Ford Escort 1.9L - The fan for the radiator does not come on and the car overheats. I have checked the fuse & its fine and there is water/coolant in the radiator. What can it be?


if the car is overheating whist driving it normally and not sat in traffic then it could be as simple as the thermostat needs replacing, are you using water if so your head gasket could have gone as for the fan the temp sensor could have gone unplug it and short the connections on the wiring the fan should start up ( ignition on) if it does replace the sensor

1997 ford escort 2.0L engine is overheating. it has a radiator that is 3 yrs. old, a new head gasket, re-machine heads, water pump and timing belt that are 2 yrs. old, new thermostat and several radiator...


try this,wearing rubber gloves(cos its hot)undo the topmost hot hose clip and expell any air trapped.also use a hotwire to check
electric fan(s) if fitted.if they run it aint them.do they operate when idling and hot,if not then its the sensor.or if you have a viscous fan is that working.....when hot you will feel a resistance to turning by hand when the engine is stopped..another telltail that the thermostat is gone is,does the guage go down when you turn the fan on full heat for the interior??...cant think of anything else.....

Overheating,and water coming out feeder pipe


Check the thermostat and the water pump for normal operation. If both check out ok, it could be a blown head gasket.

1991 Ford Escort fan will not turn on and motor overheats.


some water from the tail pipe is normal but if the car is running bad then it is possible the head gasket is blown. on the escorts that i have owned i have found that the main relay is usually burned and needs to be replaced. it is possible that the fan is dragging and burning this relay up if this relay is good then you may be better off taking it to the electrical shop.
