Temp-Ea cfi

Hi guys

Just bought a EA CFI Auto. I have just read a previous thread about bouncing temp guage and think i may have the same problem but i am not sure. It doesnt seem to bad when i am driving ,and when on the freeway it will stay just under normal. However ,as soon as i leave the freeway it will get cl0se to half normal and fluctuate but i find when i stop the car and get back in it 10 mins later the temp is Quite high after its been sitting. The needle drops to a normal level of just under half of normal pretty much as soon as its started again but while sitting it overheats.

Its seems like there is a build up of presure when the motor isnt running causing it to get hot when there is no water flowing but i dont understand this at all. Perhaps the guage is falty and like i said i just bought it , its is my first ford so if anyone has any advice or if anyone has had this problem i would appreciate your help..

Regards
Rossco

Re: Temp-Ea cfi

Unlikely the guage is faulty, it'll either work or not work.

Sounds to me like your fan isn't working 100%. Give it a spin by hand, does it spin freely, not spin at all or spin then come to a stop quickly?

Re: Temp-Ea cfi

Hi thanks for your reply.

I can spin the fan by hand but it comes to a stop as soon as i let go. The fan keeps it cool when running.. I do have a slight squeek now and then on start up from the belt, mainly only if the a/c is on.. Ill give the thing a good tighten and see if its ok.. Thanks mate.

Re: Temp-Ea cfi

Also check you haven't picked up a load of crap (leaves etc) between the aircon radiator and the engine radiator.

Re: Temp-Ea cfi

The fan should spin freely then stop, so going by that the fan itself is fine. Water pump should be fine, given the engine cools down when you start it while hot (cold water in the radiator being pumped through).
