Also.....now that I have the rest of the info on your car.....there is a recall on the cooling fan...interesting. I have all of the recalls below. The dealer may fix these for free. Please contact the dealer service department, give them the VIN number of your car and have them check on these to see if they apply to you.
I printed out the one on the cooling fan for you to look at...
Mfg. Campaign No: 01S30
Number of Affected Vehicles: 00069526
Beginning Date of Manufacture: 1994 04 13
Ending Date of Manufacture: 1995 08 11
Vehicle description: Taurus/Sable vehicles equipped with 3.0L and 3.8L engines and mustang vehicles with 3.8L and 5.0L engines. It is possible for the engine cooling fan bearing to seize.
Should this occur, excessive heat could be generated which could melt the fan motor electrical connector. Components inside the cooling fan motor could ignite potentially resulting in an underhood fire.
Dealers will inspect the engine cooling fan assembly and install a circuit breaker. If the cooling fan is inoperative, the fan and motor assembly will be replaced. Owner notification began December 28, 2001. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact ford at 1-866-436-7332.
