I just recently bought a 1996 Ford Probe. Fan only comes on when A/C is running. Is the usual. It is running hot but only in City not on Highway and A/C stops blowing cold air when car is running hot. I just replaced the thermostat anymore suggestions????

There is probably a bad wire to the fan or a fuse has blown. use test light and probe wires with key on and see if power, BE CAREFUL FAN CAN COME ON WHEN KEY IS IN ON POSITON. Is car over heating? it usually has to get really hot for the fan to work. try letting car run while in park and watch for fan to activate. Good Luck
SOUND LIKE COOLANT FAN NOT COMING ON.WHEN YOU ARE IN CITY.YOUR ENGINE RADIATOR NOT GETTING MUCH AIR FLOW IN THE CITY.BECAUSE YOU STOP AND GO ALOT.DUE TO A LOT OF STOP LIGHTS.CHECK COOLANT FAN RELAY AND FUSE.IF BOTH GOOD.COOLANT TEMPERATURE SENSOR SENSOR.IF ALL IS GOOD HOT WIRE COOLANT FAN TO SEE IF IT RUNS.IF NO FAN MOTOR BAD.IF YES FAN MOTOR RUNS WIRE CONNECTOR IS OPEN OR DAMAGED.
YOUR ENGINE IS RUNNING HOT.IF FAN KEEP RUNNING WHEN ENGINE IS OFF.CHECK COOLANT MAKE SURE ITS NOT LOW. REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.YOUR RADIATOR CORE COULD BE BLOCKED AND THE RESTRICTED GRILLE FULL OF BEBRIS AND THE.ENGINE BLOCK COOLANT PASSAGES COULD BE BLOCKED OR IGNITION TIMING COULD BE OFF.ALL THESE PROBLEMS CAN CAUSE YOUR ENGINE TO OVER HEAT.
sometimes my 1996 ford probe has problems starting - have to try several times and most times it just starts without problems. it doesn't matter whether it has been driven or just sits for days. i've had starter and starter solonoid replaced. battery is fine. it runs perfect though.
Did you run the engine with rad cap off & heater (not defrost) on while topping up the coolant. If not, do it & let it run that way until your rad fan comes on & off about 3 times, then top rad up to a inch or 2 from top, and put cap back on, & check level in return bottle.
When you are running the car,do the cooling fans come on? What was the reason for replacing the radiator? After you installed it did you have the system pressure tested? Something as simple as a bad radiatior cap can cause an overheat.Another thing to check is the temperature the coolant temp sensor is sending to the on board computer. The noise you are hearing, is it coming from the valve cover? Send the info back and include the engine and the transmission type. Thanks
