Re: Help Please
If you didn't get the coolant flushed when your T-stat was replaced, chances are there's an air pocket in the system that's not allowing the coolant to flow properly. Either that, or there's something in the system blocking flow, either through the rad, heater core, or a smaller cooling hose. It's best to get the system flushed.
Electric cooling fans are a mixed bag. I know on my Taurus the one fan will come on to keep engine temps in check, and the other fan comes on only when the A/C is turned on for better engine cooling in traffic, or when stopped and idling.
