It's possible that an air bubble may be trapped in the cooling system. Did you allow the coolant to run low at any time? If the radiator has a cap, try ramping the front wheels and running the engine with the radiator cap off. This should allow the trapped bubbles to escape. Add coolant as needed.

Take off the negative battery cable for 10 minutes. While waiting for that make sure you have all the ground straps connected that go to the battery cable end and to the engine.

Running hot, replaced thermostat,replaced waterpump. still running hot within a few minutes of running.


if it is overheating within a few minutes of running first use a laser temp gauge to ensure that the gauge is working. if it is then next step would be to have the block tested. even with a stuck thermostat it shouldn't overheat that fast.

How can I tell if the engine cooling fan is functioning properly?


The cooling fan is made to come on when the engine reaches a certain temperature. To give a simple and general test - turn the AC on high - it your AC and fan are both working correctly the fan should come on almost immediately. If not within very few minutes like 5 or 8.
Also at operating temperature the fan will run as well. In the early morning before you start the car open the hood - fill the radiator while the engine is still cold. start the engine and wait about 10 minutes or so. The fan should come on before the engine over heats. This may take up to 20 minutes and the fan is designed to run after the car is shut off IF - the temperature is hot enough.

2005 Taurus Check Brake System Flashes Then Car Dies


I won't go into a long technical explanation of how todays high tech vehicles work.
You want to know what to do.

You can not fix this yourself. Period.

You need to take the Taurus to a repair shop. You do not need to go to the dealer

They will charge you a diagnostic fee to scan your vehicle,then quote a price to repair
