Have you changed the thermostat lately? I did and mine still ran very warm, but didn't over heat completely. After looking at several sensors and relays I changed the thermostat again (Honda part this time) and it fixed it. I was told by the Honda parts guy that the after market parts do not let enough coolant flow to allow the fan sensor to work properly. So you have a resticted thermostat flow along with no fan (until the ignition is OFF) both helping the car run much too warm. Hope this helps.

Can a Blown catalytic converter cause mustang to over heat?

No, it cant. Check your thermostat to see if it is functioning properly. Next and the most important check is to do a fan clutch test. 1. Shut of engine 2. Spin the radiator fan blade. 3. If your fan clutch is working ( dampened) it should only turn 1/2 to maybe 1 revolution. If it continues to spin, then the fan clutch is shot and you are not pulling in any air to cool the radiator. If this is the case, replace the fan ( clutch comes with the fan). This answer does not pertain to electric fans

Your Renault 5 engine fan isn't kicking in Any idea why?

Dead fan motor, bad connetion to fan motor, faulty swith on radiator. To check, pull connetion to fan apart, this is a two spade connection found close to fan. Run a live wire from battery to connection and another wire from connection to negative pole on battery. If fan starts to spin, the motor is fine. This test can also be done at the thermostat switch on the radiator. Fault must be at radiator switch. This switch is located half way down the right hand side of the radiator. Drain radiator, remove switch, replace switch, refill radiator, bleed cooling system. Problem solved.

Could it be the thermostat if you have changed the radiator fan on a 1998 Plymouth Breeze and checked the fuse but it still doesn't work?

If it is a clutch fan, it will only spin when the engine gets hot. You should be able to spin it with your hand but not freely like a household fan. If it is an electric fan, it won't come on until the engine is HOT. Or sometimes with the A/C. You can check with a test light to see if you have electricity to and through the thermal switch on the radiator. (When Hot) You can also supply 12V manually to the fan to see if it is good. I blew a fan, in the process the fuse blew too. Check the fuse box in the engine..
