    I have a 2005 Mustang GT and have been having this problem for a while now. Whenever I drive the car, my fan to cool the engine will initially turn on but after it shuts off, it will not turn back on. This causes the car to begin to overheat when idling. I am not running any A/C when this...

    Im working on a 86 gt that has been sitting for about two years. At first it wouldnt even start so I replaced the starter and got it running however it still overheats while idling and driving. Last time I worked on this car I replaced the thermostat (which was about two years ago) however I...

    Hello, im new here and trying to get my 86 gt running with no problems. Currently it overheats and also stalls randomly (I think it might be the TFI module). Anyways I’ve already changed the thermostat, pulley belt, some radiator hoses, and radiator cap but no solution. I think I might’ve...

    Hey all, I've got a SBF 302 in a road racing car. I'm overheating after a couple laps on track, and im not sure why. Cruising around city streets at low/mid RPM it is bouncing between 150-160F as the thermostat actuates. On the race track after a couple laps at WOT it'll get up to 240F+ before...

    Hey everyone, need a little help with my 94 Mustang GT. So last week my dad was driving my mustang home from a 2 hour trip and all of a sudden I started seeing white smoke coming from the tail pipes and the car was losing power. We pulled over to find the radiator had cracked but it wasn't...

    Within the last few months my mustang had been giving me problems about overheating, it would only overheat after about an hours worth of use on the car. Today I decided to finally change the thermostat. I drove it to the gas station & immediately noticed a puddle of coolant under the car. I...

  9. Classic Mustangs & Fords
    I know this has been covered about a million times, but I can't solve the problem. I have a 1966 Mustang with a late 80's 302 (5.0L). The engine installation was done before I bought the car, so I'm learning what parts were kept original and what wasn't. The engine was kept carbuerated and as...
  10. SVT & DOHC
    I was driving my 98' Cobra on a hot day and the overheating light came on when I was driving, it started to run really bad so I shut the car off and got it towed. Antifreeze came up out of the top of the tank. I don't know if there is a leak or what but the car starts and runs and idles fine...
