Check the temperature switch, which is mounted on the rear of the cylinder head (driver side, upper engine area), and also the cooling fan control. Both of these signal when the cooling fan should come on, and it sounds like it's kicking on too late.

Make sure the radiator pressure cap is the correct one and that the hose is not soft--check the lower hose and heater hoses for softness as well. They should be firm, but not hard or cracking. The temperature sensor is reporting normal operating temperature, so it and the thermostat are working correctly (hot water would blow out of the radiator if it were stuck). Check the cooling fan for free turning and no noise. Check it's grounding connection. Check the fuse box for blown fuses to the fan and to the A/C compressor. Make sure all the relays and fuses are firmly pressed into their sockets. Check the A/C compressor clutch winding for resistance--should not read infinity. Does the blower motor for the heater/A/C run when either is turned on? The A/C switch on the dash may be defective.

Hi Bajil, Have a diagnostic scan carried out and have the coolant temperature sensor and relay inspected for correct operation. It sounds as if a cable has become disconnected or that the operating circuit has become defective. The cooling circuit operation is correct when the fan operates when the engine temperature raises a fraction above normal. The fan will run for a number of seconds and then switch off, thereby maintaining the 'normal' operating temperature. Regards John

I would suspect either the temp guage or the coolant temperature sensor being inaccurate. The new thermostat is probably working good, or else you wouldn't have a very warm heater. If you have electric radiator fans, you might check to see if they are running all th time. Electric cooling fans should only come on when the temperature sensor reaches a predetermined coolant temp, or when the a/c or defroster is turned on. If the fan runs all the time, the engine would not reach normal operating temperature.

The cooling fan on my 2001 ford escort SE will not work normally


Check the coolant temperature with the car stopped. At idle with the hood up keep the thermometer in the coolant. Confirm if the coolant is not overheating but the engine is!!

Run the A/C keeping the thermometer in the coolant and allow the fan to kick on.

If with the A/C on the engine doesn't overheat then it confirms that the low speed on the fan motor is not working. Read the description of the Taurus where the low speed is used for normal operation when temperature is required but the high speed is activated when the A/C is on. The circuit is simple.

In your case the low speed has to be activated for the A/C to go into the high speed. The fact that the high speed is working and low speed is not indicates the low speed of the fan is defective.

Other problems such as the thermostat or plugged cooling system(radiator clogged) could be the root problem!

Hope this helps?

Cooling fan


there are relays not just fuses for the cooling fan. look under the hood there should be a black junction box open it and you will see several little black cubes those are relays. if you have the owners manual they will show what each one is for. start the vehicle and let it get to operating temp 180-190 degrees your fans normally kick on at this point what i normally do is take the relay for the a/c clutch and swap it for the radiator cooling fan if the fans kick on you know it was the relay. if they don't kick on then you know that the temp sensor on the radiator is bad., but before you go replacing anything make sure that there are no loose or missing wires. that all mplug connections are tight and not coroded and that with the engine off that the fan blades spin freely. once checking everything and you still have an issue then the fans are bad and need to replace it.. please rate this thanks
