Escrt FanCheck for a shorted fan switch

I fixed this today 3-2-2011----I chnged my cooling fan sensor and sending unit---not sure of the names of the parts --but they screw into the metal pipe just under the distributer (where the 4 spark plugs come together)----they have a small electrical connecter on EACH one and scew in like a spark plug--and are about the size of a spark plug--use a 3/4 inch deep well socket ---this worked for me and my coolant light went out after the second start------I looked all over for a fan relay----there is not one in my 1998 escort-----It must be in the computer. The parts cost me 27$ at auto zone------I took out the air filter housing ( a snap off ring-- no tools needed) and removed the upper hard plastic hose----bent up the remaining rubber corrigated hose and there are the fan sensors---side by side---easy--------good luck and i ---I looked for hours and got all kinds of answers----this worked for me---no relays--no messing with the computer thing----------
