Thanks for the reply's.

Just to clear things up... My car runs perfect. No problems what so ever, even when I get this spike. No burning smell, no weird noises, no heat if I turn off the A/C. I do get an ozone smell from the A/C, but this always happens when I idle for a bit.

Last time I took my car in, the dealership told me they replaced some items, but when I questioned them further they admitted they didn't do anything. It seems they had some ideas what the problem was, but couldn't replace anything since they couldn't replicate the warning. I was pissed to say the least. Then they tried to charge me for a week of a rental car since they couldn't charge anything to Ford.

I like the idea of a faulty fan, it makes the most sense. I'm going to try my luck with a different dealer (benefits of living in a big city), and see if they can reproduce the over temp.

Can a dealer charge Ford for repairs based off of my video, or do they have to do it in their shop?
