frown (92 Taurus GL-Vulcan 3.0) Overheating Problems?

Alright, I'm back with another problem. :) I got my car running awesome.. new rotors, plugs, wires, fuel filter, radiator hoses, injector cleaner, power steering conditioner, radiator flushes, etc..

Anyways, all is fine except for the fact that on semi-hot to hot days, the temperature guauge goes just past the L on "NORMAL". Seems to be running very hot... Would changing the temperature sensor or thermostat help this at all? What else could it be? I know the fan is operating (at both speeds) at the appropriate times, however this happens when I am going 35+ down the road as well and the fan ISN'T on.. So.. I need to either hook the fan up to the ignition, and leave it on, or find out what is wrong with it in the first place.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

--Micah

have you replaced the Thermostat? Very straight forward thing to do. That would be the first thing I would look at especially on a car of its age.

Have not checked the thermostat yet. And yes.. it looks easy enough to replace. I need to buy a thermostat and gasket and its right on the side of the engine near the battery. Looks super easy. I'll check that out today and replace it since its a nice cheap thing to do.
