Having problems with your 1996 Ford F250 Crew Cab ?

My 1996 Ford F250 3/4 Ton pickup overheats. I've replaced the thermostat, and the radiator fan is working.

Answers :

I would look at the water pump. Check for leaks at the pump. The water pump may have a "weep hole" and if there is any coolant leaking out of the hole the pump is bad. Hope this helped.

My jeep overheated, took it to shop, they stated it was the thermostat and radiator cap, they replaced both, now they are stating that the fan is not working, when it was working before they replaced the thermostat, is this possible? It is just hard for me to believe that fan was working before they replaced the bad thermostat, and then once replaced, the fan stops working. Please help me to understand. Thanks.

In my 1995 Ford Probe, we replaced the heater core hose and thermostat. The water pump is fine, and the radiator doesn't leak. The fan is working also. The alternator just went bad. Would a bad alternator make the fan or water pump not work well enough to keep the car cool? Until the alternator went completely, I could only get a mile before overheating.


Yes, It could affect the cooling fan. R&R the alternator. Good Luck, Ned ... 1995 Ford Probe

Overheating have replaced water pump, belts, flushed radiator, pressure tested coolant system w/ good results, replaced thermostat, replaced radiator. before replacing the radiator, we found that coolant on one side was much cooler than coolant on the other. I thought replacing the radiator was the answer. the fans all work, there is no combustion stuff in the coolant, no excessive smoke in the exhaust, and it only overheats on a hot day with the AC running going up hill. I can turn off the AC a

My radiator crack right in the middle of last summer. I patched it with a two parts epoxy glue because i didn't have any money to replace it and it was working righ until cracked again then i stoped using it. I ordered a new ratiator that i will receive next week but now the fans are not working and the antifreezer is at the same level and not going into the radiator.

I just changed the radiator of my 2001 Maxima and the fan stopped working. It was working fine before I changed it. We checked the fuse, thermostat, wires and they all good. the mechanic told me that the ECU need to be replaced, but I can't beleive him cuz the fan was working fine before I changed the radiator. Any suggestions?


The ECU drives a relay which in turn drives the fan. Trace the fan wiring back to the relay and check the plug connection. Does the fan turn freely by hand? If not, replace it. The fan needs a solid ground connection as well as power from the relay. ... 1988 Nissan Maxima

Radiator fans don't turn on when temp is reached at manufacturer temp of 212 degrees spec. The temp sensor does work and both fan sensors were replaced. Is there a possibility the thermostat could be the problem and if so, why would the thermostat prevent fans from kicking on.


The fans doesn't come on at 212 F, they come on at 225F-230F I know this from allot of field experience, if the fans work when the AC is on then chances are u have a functional system. if not then you most likely have ... Cadillac Catera

My Voyager is overheating, Ive flushed the radiator,changed the thermostat,radiator cap & temp.sending unit. The fan works properly but Ive replaced the relay that runs the fan,A/C,& temp. sending unit twice already. So as of right now I have the cooling fan bypassed to where its always on when I'm driving. But where im stuck is when it starts getting hot It will start to cool down when I drive very fast between stoplights,or when I turn on the heater.What else could be causing it to over heat?

I have a 07 chevy aveo ls 5 with a 1.6 ltr engine and it's automatic trans so here's my problem my wife was driving home from work and the car overheated and shut off when i got there i found that the cooling fan had rubbed a hole in the radiator we towed it home i replaced the rad water pump thermostat and hoses but the fan still wont kick on not even when you turn on the ac so i replaced the all the relays still no fan i think it's the temp sensor but i can't find it any help would be great


Check for power to the fan and for a good ground. If those are both present then you would need a fan. If your old fan rubbed a hole in your radiator then I would definately check to see if the fan has play in it that would case it to hit the radiato ... 2006 Chevrolet Aveo

1997 Subaru Outback 2.5l. Last week I had the timing belt and seals replaced, power steering pump repaired and the thermostat and housing replaced. Drove it home with no problems approx 70kms on mainly highways. The next day it started to overheat. The fans work, thermostat seems ok as the top and bottom hoses heat up. Have tried bleeding it with the car jacked up so the radiator bleeder is the highest point. There was been minor improvement in the time it takes to overheat whilst driving. Now u

Don't know what else it could b please give me more ideas of what it could b need this car 4 work and financially can't buy another car right now. I greatly appreciate it. Charlie


Since all the above checks point to the fact that your car cooling system is in order the fault remains that the engine overheats due to poor settings.\012So it is important to have your engine tuned up. This means that the timing is most impor ... 1991 Acura Legend
