    I noticed on mine that if I turn on the AC the electric fans kick on and the engine cools down. I have to do this all the time to keep the engine cool. How do I get my fans to come on automatically? I have replaced the thermostat and no change?

HI,
Also have a 1998 Contour with 225,000 miles and just recently started to over heat. Over the years I replace most parts thru routine maintenance but never recalled an overheating problem. I read in another forum that a slighly clogged catalytic converter can cause this problem by not properly exhausting hot gases.
Have you solved the problem ? What was the cure?
Like to know, Rich

    HI Again,

    Make sure you properly bleed cooling system !! Otherwise steam will find its way to the temp sensor to give you a bogus reading plus air in the water pump with not move coolant.

Replace thermastat to start flush cooling system out at same time

Why is my 1998 ford contour over heating and my heater no longer works


Radiator is corroded, plugged up due to age. Same with the heater core. You door vents might not be working, which could also result in a no heat situation.

1999 ford expedition. smells like antifreeze in the cab, worse when I turn on air conditioner ?? I saw a leak today at the firewall. I drove it about 5 miles stopped the car and it hasnt leaked...


This is likely the heater core leaking. Once it turns cold you will have foggy windows too.

When the heat is turned off the antifreeze stops flowing through the heater core, once it was all gone the leak would have stopped until the next time you need heat.

"check engine" light is on in vehicle


A bad MAF (mass air flow) sensor can cause this issue. If you know what you are looking for, unplug the sensor and see if the car runs better. If it does then the sensor is bad.

1998 Ford Contour......having a problem putting gas into it. Either shuts off too much or overflows way before full.


The tank is not venting properly during the fill procedure. Check the coupling hose between the filler neck and the tank fitting. It may be collapsed or twisted.
