    Good Day All. Driving a few nights ago, and car ran up to about 230 degrees, which is one notch after half way and two notches below the red at 270. Fan has not been working. I managed to get to a parking lot and shut it off. Let it cool down for about 30 mins, and was back on the road with...

    Hello everyone. New to this forum. Proud owner of a 2006 V6 Automatic Stang. I'll start off by letting you guys know I'm not very car savvy. I'm having some issues and I have no idea what's wrong. Issue #1: My car has been leaking coolant from time to time. As far as I know, it only leaks when...

    Hey guys! I just bought a 1998 mustang gt with 185k miles on it. It's a nice car but it overheated the other day so I checked the thermostat and it was bad so I replaced it. It ran fine all day yesterday but tonight it overheated again! The fan works, I tested the thermostat and it works, there...

    I have a '68 Mustang with a 302 out of a '73 in it. I've posted a couple of threads about the cooling/overheating of the car. It has never overheated but as I've said in my other posts, it gets a little too warm for comfort when driving in the city. I bought a 5 bladed fan from the salvage...

    So I've been trying to do research and I keep getting mixed answers wherever I look. I have '68 Mustang with '73 302 in it. I only drive it in the spring/summer. I live here in Illinois and it gets pretty warm here in the summer. The car has never overheated, but sometimes when I'm driving in...

    Today I installed a SR performance CAI. when i started it up for the first time (2004 v6 with no other mod) she not only was leaking something (from behind the catbacks in the exhaust) that i thought was just water (but a lot), she also was heating up very quickly(the engine meter was almost at...

    Hey guys, New to the site and I need some help. I have a 03 4.6 overheating on me. Previously it was overheating only when idling for too long but not when driving. The other day I was performing a couple donuts(dumb I know) and when I stopped spinning around, the car died. It tried to turn...

    Hi all and thanks for any help or advice i may get. I have a 2003 gt with a 4.6 sohc engine. It all started with a pin hole that I found in my radiator (how it got there is beyond me) I didn't have the money to fix it right away but I needed to use the car for work so I added water every day to...

    okay so i got a 1999 ford mustang v6 about a month ago and i started to drive it recently and today it started to over heat so i pulled off the road and let it cool down. i even turned on the heat but it would only blow out cold air. the fan also only works if the AC is on, not the heat. so i...

    I have a 2003 GT and am having issues with it overheating. The cooling fan won't run unless the a/c is activated. The thermostat and CCRM were both replaced, but the fan still won't kick on. Anyone else have similar issues?

    Hey everyone, I don't usually get on forums so if I'm in the wrong section I apologize. So here's my dilemma. A couple days ago I was driving home from a buddy's house when all the sudden my AC all the sudden got warmer. I thought it was weird because my AC has always been ice cold. Anyways a...

    I have been looking through the forums and haven't found an identical situation, so I figure it's ok to post. Lately my 1998 GT has been having oveheating issues. When I am driving it, it will still stay at the R in NORMAL but if I let it idle for very long then it goes all of the way to the...
