I was pretty sure it was the cooling fan not coming on which was causing the over heating because once the car started to over heat I pulled over, popped the hood and found the fan NOT running.

Checked the fuses which are all fine. Then I found it....pulled the power cord that attaches to the 3 teeth connector for the fan motor and found the plastic around one of the teeth looking like a crater. All burnt out looking like a fire cracker went off in there. I would assume the connector is bad or the motor blew out.

I have photos, but not with me. I would assume it is safe to say the fan motor needs to be replaced? Any feedback?

yep, that is what happened, mine literally was in flames when it finally went...rolled into a Ford Service ramp...agent was like "can I help you?"...looking at the smoke coming from the hood, my only thought was "you can't fix stupid"...
