faulty sensor one is for turning fan on at correct temp and one is for shutting fan off when not needed,
Check the fan sensor and relay for the Contour fan. Check the fan motor next. One of these three will most likely be the problem.
by Tigercadd:The drain plug is at the bottom of the radiator, passenger side facing the engine compartment. Im not a Big mechanic or anything but i know a few basics, not every car has a drain plug for the radiator, if it does, it will be on the bottom of the rad. if it doesnt a simple way to drain the coolant would be to disconect the bottom rad hose and let the coolant drain through thatI have looked at the manual and from what I can remember, on the Ford Contour, you have to remove the plastic splashboard underneath the front part of the car before you can see the radiator drain plug on a 1998 Ford Contour. I have not actually changed the radiator fluid on my Contour but I know you will have to remove the bolts that hold the splashboard on and remove the splashboard before you can see the radiator drainplug.
depends what year it is, normally it would be on the right top by the head just follow your upper radiator hose all the way to the end
Question is not clear. WHAT letter? Why would the sender have to initial it?
to add to this, a big YES,on the radiator cap .the radiator cap needs to be specific pressure rating. radiator caps do wear out. also the cheapest fix to start It is doubtful a radiator cap would cause a car to overheat. Common overheating causes are insufficient coolant, leaking coolant (into or out of your engine), faulty thermostat, blown cooling fan fuse, faulty fan temperature switch ( sender ), faulty fan, or a faulty fan relay.
One contour can not cross another because a contour is one exact elevation; if it crossed another contour it would show that it is higher than the second contour on one side, but lower on the other side.
I would first inspect and clean the connection at the sender. If that did not improve the problem, I would replace the sender. I suspect it is a sender problem.
The word contour does not exactly have an antonym, however, it you use contoured, the antonym would be flat.
Defective radiator cap?Fan temperature sensor defective?
Notice the pattern around that contour line. Then determine the interval that the surrounding contour lines are increasing or decreasing by. Ex. 50 100 150 200, the contour interval would then be 50
I don't think its the sender in the tank, or the speedo sensor, it's gotta be somthing in the gauge cluster... maybe they share the same fuse...check a manual for the circuit dave
The wider the contour lines on a map, the gentler the slope.
There may be a hole in the radiator?
The road followed the contour line around the mountain. The contour line was smooth and created good air flow over the wing.
If the radiator was not fitted in properly or the pipes were not attached correctly, the radiator would leak.
A household radiator is cast iron. An automotive radiator would be aluminum or copper.
They are almost identical. If the style of contour is the same, i would say yes. IE - Contour GL.
you would draw contour lines, and include a legend, and some landforms such as rivers, oceans, mountains, valleys... etc
contour lines, contour intervals, slopes etc....
When contour lines are close together the land is steep
The Quarterback would be the sender
Contour lines denote the boundaries between levels in whatever data they're representing. For example if a map has height contours plotted on it, then the area between any two contour lines has a height that is above the lower contour value and below the upper contour value. If contour lines crossed that would indicate that the place where they cross has two separate values for the same measurement - in this case the land where the lines crossed would have 2 different heights, which is impossible.
I would check under the reservoir
