I appreciate all your advice and guidance. If fuse is good then test to make sure fan is getting power. This is where they will leak. So, I dont know why I tuned Pepto Bismol color? The car slows down reduced power as a safety cause computer recieves a false signal telling it that it has gotten hot. The overheating incidents started as an intermittent event, but became much more frequent - sometimes daily. Turned the heat on full blast, and let it idle for about 30 minutes. My car started to overhear but only when stuck in traffic.
I have spoke to two separate representatives form Ford. It could be just starting to go bad, the worse it gets, the hotter the engine will run. The air conditioner will still run in defrost most, like normal, to remove the humidity from the air so it won't condense on the cold windshield and cause fogging, but since the air will be cold, it will take longer to defog the windshield. A worn engine will also heat up very quickly under load. If you've mixed these up, you have done major damage and are in for some expensive repairs.
You will need to observe when your vehicle tends to overheat at idle? It has helped me feel more confident talking with the mechanic. Recently I slowly unscrewed the degas bottle cap it was not hot though , and heard air escape. I have flush the engine water radiator Peaks radiator flush I've also took out the thermostat why was Flushing the radiator and Reservoir what a cooling system as a whole and the car still was overheat the only time it overheats is when I drive more than an hour I would like to know what it could possibly be the car is not smoke coming from the tailpipe and I haven't noticed eating water pump issues the cooling fan the seem like it running a little slow but I'm not sure because I never owned only can before and don't know if the fan is supposed to move it the rate that is moving the water pump does seem like it's pumping water through the system but it seems that the recovery tank is not circulate in the water to the radiator and when it overheats all I hear is the bubbling sound inside a recovery tank so what other problem could it be for as this matter I really don't have the money to do a major overhaul on this vehicle due to some personal and family issues that I'm currently going through so what else could it be I did take it to a mechanic and he put the bars stop leak in it and that didn't seem like it work the sari flush the system out again to get all that stuff from bars out the system and see if I can get it out so what else could it be to let his car overheat it don't seem I don't see any leaks when it possibly could cause everything so compact in the engine area so what else could it be like I said the recovery tank doesn't seems like it's circulate in the water through the system fill it up a couple times and left it running and it just seemed like it wasn't pumping through the system correctly so like I said the portal pump is working but what else could it be to make car overheat please reply soon thank you beatupchevy answered 2 years ago if you had the thermostat out you should have replaced it , not that it's the problem just saying , Why did the mechanic put stop leak in it? If the cooling fins crumble like a rotten chocolate chip cookie, like mine did many years ago, replace the radiator. What can be the problem? May 28, 2014 Does the system pressurize? It has a fan symbol on it. He I got new thermostat water pump got the radiator flushed and my car is still overheating. I found out that the fan is just a hydraulic motor in reverse it only spins as fast as the pump makes it spin and that is controlled by the temp.
Now, 10 months later, it is overheating again. This may not be the problem at all; just pointing out a real oddity on these cars. How do I find the fan senor attached to the engine? There is hydraulic cooling fan fluid. Other than this the car is wonderful and I love it The car runs great once the coils are fixed and has plenty of power in the V8. While driving to St Louis after about 1.
There is hydraulic cooling fan fluid. First 2 times of overheating they stated the fan clutch was bad and replaced it and it seemed to not run hot as often but still had symptoms. You may not see a leak, but it keeps it from pressurizing. I topped off the coolant in the resevoir and did a cold start this morning. I agree with Tardis as usual.
The power steering pump must be strong enough to push the power steering fluid through the hydraulic pump that power the fan that cools down the car while the car is sitting still. I also live in Texas and my problem started on a hot august day and has been staying constant even though out the repairs. Open the bleeder valve until coolant flows freely from the bleeder valve. She stated that the vehicle stalls while at a stop light. Drive steadily and you will not notice any difference from a missing brace. I suspect pressure in the cooling system is causing that hot coolant to spray over to the driver's side.
May 31, 2017 There is no relay on the cooling fan circuit. Is there a drain hose in that resevoir somewhere that would drain the coolant out if it started boiling over? This should definitely fix your problem. Oblivion, there is no fan clutch on this car. Feel the radiator top and bottom it should be the same temperature with no cold spots. So I started replacing all kinds of parts radiator new water pump ahh thermista and a new pump for the fan it self I even bought a new top for the degas bottle! It is an overheat message, but the coolant and engine are not hot. You have a hydraulic fan on that model, and it is known to be troublesome. The power steering pump must be strong enough to push the power steering fluid through the hydraulic pump that power the fan that cools down the car while the car is sitting still.
Most likely the pump or pump actuator has failed. Make sure that your radiator is flowing properly. This is costing me a fortune to keep ''fixing'' things that are not solving the problem. The current and failure mileages were 57,000. It is a tight job to replace it but it should take no longer than an hour. Usually applying greater torque to undo a corroded bolt results in the bolt breaking.
