Yes, both of those could cause overheating. Have a look at the parts microfiche at Ron Ayers, it shows where your thermostat is located in relation to your radiator hoses.

V6 3.0 getting hot


thermostat is on the waterpump. Follow the lower radiator hose to the housing. there should be three 10mm bolts should be holding the housing to the waterpump with the thermostat in between. If you are going to change it, then drain your cooling system first.

Overheat after waterpump replacement


Did you change the thermostat? If not it may be the cause. You can check the thermostat by removing it and immersing it in hot water. If it is working it will open. The thermostat is usually located under the upper radiator hose.

Location of the Auxiliary fan switch


The auxillary fan is used for AC cooling purposes, and your vehicle under normal circumstances should not overheat regardless of the status of the auxillary fan.

That being said, the auxillary fan is controlled by the PCM based on AC switch position via a fan control relay in your fuse box under the hood. There is no fan switch for it, as it is turned on based on PCM observance of AC control switch position.



Some things to look at regarding your overheat condition:

When the vehicle begins overheating, what are the conditions of the radiator hoses? Are both firm, or only one and the other soft? Are both hot, or is one hot and the other only warm?

Both a failed waterpump and a failed shut thermostat will show a hot hose on one side and only a warm hose on the other side of the radiator.

A failed (stuck shut) thermostat will also result in one very firm hose (highly pressurized and nowhere to go with the thermostat shut) and one relatively soft hose.

You can take the radiator cap off (BEFORE it pressurizes) and watch the water level as the car runs. If the thermostat is opening and waterpump is pumping, you will see fluid flow once it gets to operating temperature.

Watch your engine fan and see if it is engaged or just spinning freely. When warm and the engine shut off, the fan clutch should be engaged making the fan more resistant to turn. If it spins freely, the clutch is failing.

Check the area around the radiator and between it and the condenser for obstructions to airflow.

Obviously check the condition of the coolant for heavy scale/sludge. The 3.0/3.5 engines are notorious for turning coolant into thick rusty puddy.

Hope this helps!

Car over heating. tempature gauge fluxuates


Your overheating problems can have several possible causes.
1) Airlock in heating system - solution - bleed air from cooling system. Method is dependent on make/model of vehicle
2) Radiator blocked - solution - drain and flush radiator
3) Failed waterpump - solution - fit new waterpump
4) Engine thermostat stuck in closed position - solution - fit new thermostat
5) Electric cooling fan (if fitted) failing to operate - solution - check fan, fan operating switch, all wiring and connectors
6) Not enough coolant in system - solution - check and top up to required level. Also check all hoses for sign of leakage.
7) Faulty temperature gauge giving incorrect reading

Car runs real hot


Make sure to use OEM parts and drain the air out of the cooling system. The 3.5 especially is very touchy regarding OEM and aftermarket waterpumps and thermostats for whatever reason. Simple solution to bleed out the air is to drive the car 5-10 mins without the pressure-cap.
