SOURCE: radiator fan does not come on, overheating lamp blinks

Disconnect the two fan plugs leads from the fan sensor switch in the thermostat housing bridge the two plugs with a wire if the fan starts then you will need to replace the fan sensor switch if not the fan will need replacing ,as for the temp light flashing with the indicator light maybe because they share the same fuse and they could share a common earth as well?
Cheers Michael

SOURCE: 1977 Honda GL1000 Goldwing. I replaced the water

I have a few 1977 GL-1000 bikes.
I thought one was overheating but it turned out that the 9 volt regulator was fried and was putting 12 volts to the temperature gauge. Temperature was really OK. The fan switch is probably not lying

from what you are describing the fan is drawing too much power, check to make sure there is nothing else connected to the circuit,

SOURCE: 2008 R1 cooling fan not

I have a 2002 ducati monster S4, it's fans come on at 212 degrees F, that is about 108 degrees C, They only come on in city traffic, and they have only come on twice in 8 years. Your coolant boils at 265F in a closed system, so depending on what the thermostat is set at, they are probably just getting ready to come on at 103. I kinda wish I had a switch that I could turn them on at any time, so it sounds like your bike is running normal, also, my bike runs at exactly 100 degrees hotter than the outside air temp, always. Hope this helps.

The most common fan problem Honda has with over heating is with the two wire fan switch on the radiator not working correctly. I think you have nailed it.

1991 Ford tempo gl overheats when in idle and how do I replace power window motor?


Overheating at idle is usually due to the engine cooling fan not working. Could be a bad fan relay (most common cause), bad fan thermostat, or a bad fan motor.
Replacing the power window motor is quite difficult, I would leave this to the pros unless you are really mechanically inclined. I replaced one on an Aerostar, but I don't think I'd try it again.

How do you remove a transmission 1991 ford tempo


It would take way to long to tell you a step by step procedure in here.
You can get a haynes auto repair manual for that car, it gives a step by step procedure on most major removal and installation jobs. Most auto parts stores stock them, about $17.00.

How do you replace motor mounts


2.3 L engine. Helps if you have air tool's. Any way, from under neath support engine point to the mount that you will be taking off. If the front trans mount, then you have to remove the complete assembly, and replace the mount then re-install the assembly. The rear trans mount is easier. Front engine mount, support under the engine and remove this from the top.

Location of auto trans dip stick on 91 Ford Tempo 4 cyl.


It's right next to the air filter and behind the radiator fan and to the right of the oil dipstick. The transmissions is black and the oils is yellow. If it's a manual, there's no dipstick there. If not check close to the forewall towards the back of the engine.
