I have a 1998 Ford Escort Wagon and my AC/HEAT works but it doesn't blow out. IT trickles out faster the faster I drive, but it seems the fan is not working. Also, I thought I had a radiator leak but it seems that my radiator fan just isnt working and from what a friend said it may be the reason I am losing coolant. Apparently it is overflowing do to the fan not working and the coolant boiling. Does this seem logical? My questions: Is the radiator fan and AC/HEAT blower fan the same? Do they wo
Your friend is right. To answer your other question these are two totally seperate fans but that does not mean that one fans fuse or relay did not affect the other. You should check your fuses and which ones, if any, are blown. It is likely that d ... 1998 Ford Escort

Your circuit is simple--I will paste it below. suspect the blower has shorted and caused the switch to burn up. remove the blower and hotwire it to the battery to see if it works. If not, replace the blower. Then run continuity tests on the swoit ... 1988 Ford Tempo

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

On 1998 ford contour 4 cyl. I replaced the switch for radiator fan checked all fuses and links yet the fan does not engage until (on gauge ) that says normal in a box, until passing the l on word normal. Then only one fan goes on for about 30 seconds. This fan is the same one that if a/c is on goes on automatically.( fan is on passenger side of car that works) other one never runs, so if at lengthy stop seems like it will over heat. How do I remedy this? On same car I have to drop tank to clean
Both fans should turn on together. Try to turn the one that's dead by hand--has it seized it's bearings? Replace that fan with one from a wrecking yard or buy a new one. If it seems that the fans turn on late (according to the temp gauge) replace th ... 1998 Ford Contour
