Question about 2005 Ford Thunderbird
Welcome to Fixya
There are 3 possible problems:
1 Sticky thermostat
2 Inaccurate temperature sender.
3 Failing head gasket, making steam bubbles in the engine.
It would be best if you scan the engine using a scan tool. Provide me the error code that you will get for us to determine what is causing the problem.
Thank you for using Fixya!

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. I do know of the noise you are hearing. You usually hear it when you are taking off? If so, check all your vacuum hoses on the engine. Make sure none are damaged or loose. Make sure you air filter is not clogged also Angela. It may need changed. As for the slight overheating, check your coolant fluid and make sure it is the correct level. I want you to check your fans. Make sure they are working. Check the fuse that is in the fuse box labeled radiator fans. When you turn the AC on, the fans automatically turn on. That is why it is cooling down when you turn it on. You might have a bad fan or a bad wire or connection to the fan. A blown fuse may be the cause also. You still want to check all your hoses though. If it begins to overheat, do not drive the car. It can cause engine damage.
