electric fan temp sensor
Somebody help! I have an '89 Mustang LX convertible with a 2.3L, automatic. While I would love to have a 5.0L, this will do for now.
My problem is that while cruising on warm or hot days the engine will start to warm up, as normal. But the electric fan does not kick on when it is supposed to. If I notice that the temperature gauge is getting too high, I kick on the A/C for a few seconds (which is apparently enough time to kick on the electric fan) and the engine cools down as it should. But, the fan will not run by itself when the temp gets high, only when I kick on the A/C.
While I love driving around with the top down, I don't want to always worry about the car overheating. I have taken it to a couple of "mechanics", but they just scratch their heads.
