I have a 1998 taurus dohc that over heats when you put it in gear or turn on the a/c then stalls. We changed the thermastat but that wasn't it. Was told it could be water pump or blown headgasket. It also does not leak water frem anywhere that we can see.
Do you
have the same problem?

1st check and make sure coolant system full and not low
start and run engine, put A/C on
does the coolant fan run
if not check fuses and relay and fan operation
if fan run and engine still overheat
have to check if water pump pushing and circulating the coolant through the system,
put the heater on do you have heat
does that help in cooling down the engine
let me know
