How do you troubleshoot and fix a Lincoln LS fan The motor is V8 and the car runs hot while idling it looks like the fan is not coming on?
Hook up direct wire leads from the battery to the fan terminals to check the fan operation. If they don't work, then the fans are bad. If they do, then check the fan relay.
it would help if you said what engine. Goto rockauto.com and look up your car, you will see an illustration of what it looks like, but basically its black, has a vacuum tube coming out of the top, shaped like a bell, and has an metal tube coming out of it. On the V6 it is looked on the passengers side of the engine compartment, towards the front of the engine bay.
