The cooling fan on my 2001 Mustang runs constantly. Even when the engine is cold. The temperature gauge reads normal. The engine has 39,000 miles. What is the problem?


low engine coolant ,coolant temp. switch for the fans,fan relay shorted closed.and possibly a computer.check for codes,coolant level in radiator when cold,remove relay for fan and see if the fan stops. check to see if the ac is on or if the heater ac switch is in defrost position. ac will be on and coolant fan is commanded on also.i hope this will help.

Radiator fan


either the fan is bad or you need a temp. sensor, to check fans, run a wire from positive on fan wires to positive on battery, if need be ground fans!! if they are ok the fan should start running,,

This car runs hot when idleing but is fine at highway speeds. I just replaced the water pump and had the radiator rodded out. the electric fan is running fine and moving air well.


The thermostat might be stuck open. If it is then water running into the radiator is not spending enough time there to cool off before flowing back to the engine block. At speed the increased airflow is having a greater cooling effect while blowing through the radiator fins. With the car totally cool, open the radiator cap and then start the car. Watch the water flow in the radiator. If it is flowing straight through right from the start, you'll know it is the thermostat. It should sit in the radiator until the engine reaches opening temperature and then the flow begins. As soon as the cool water from the radiator reaches the thermostat, it closes and the flow stops. So constant flow equals bad thermostat, flow then stop then flow equals working properly.

1998 ford mustang radiator cooing fan wont come on


Check the fluid level in the radiator - after it cools down !

It sounds like you should replace the temperature sensor that controls the fan. This is usually located in the radiator and has electrical wires connected to it. Trace the wires from the radiator fan ( not the air conditioner fan!) to the sensor.

If the radiator is aluminum you may need special anti-freeze to prevent damage.

My radiator (1996 Ford Explorer) is leaking at the bottom. No problem with heating or cooling or running hot. Just steady drip


You can have it repaired at a radiator shop, or replaced with a new one. Are you sure it's the radiator that's leaking, sometimes it's the water pump or a hose that drips down onto the radiator. It can be difficult to locate due to air circulation of the fan and driving which spreads the leaking fluid around. I assume u top off the coolant often, since u say there are no issues w/ it overheating or running hot. If this is the case, the leak will eventually get worse, and adding coolant constantly gets expensive. Good luck, let me know what u decide to do, or if u have any other questions. Curt

91 Mustang GT running Hot


does the fan come on when supposed to? you could hook your fans to a toggle switch and run them manually from start to finish this may help. also did you bleed the system after replacing these parts and purge all air from cooling system? is the coolant coming out of the resovoir hose?

1990 Ford Mustang GT Still Running Hot!


check to see if you can spin the fanwhile the engine is cool it should spin freely,if it doesnt fan clutch,also I would switch the fan back to oringinal just to test if this is the problem,if it is youll have to design a different fan shroud if you want to use you new fan,if everything done above is ok with the engine cool take off the radiator cap and squeeze the bottom hose 4-5 times in burst this will make sure you dont have air in the system,if this is helpfull please vote me a fix ya
