A few weeks ago I went into ford and they fixed something that broke within my intake manifold, and since I got it back i noticed that my Rad fans are runnin alot. and when itslike -20 degrees celcious I dont think they should run all the time. I think they may have forgotten to place a sensor back in right or maybe a different sensor broke.
what my question is, what could be causing this issue? I am just curious so when i go into ford I can tell them a lil bit more information about the problem.

don't worry about gettin all the info to tell them. just tell them your fans seem to be running too much, and let them deal with figuring out why. trust me, it actually saves time to let them start from scratch

how do you know if it's running all the time? you can hear it? i've actually never heard it on in my car, but i'm sure it is running when needed.

^^ wow, thats no good, how did you find out it wasn't running? b/c of the over heat? i'm kinda nervous now because even in -40 degrees weather my oil temp (the dummy gauge) will read a little past the mid point when i'm sitting in traffic. does this have anything to do with the rad fan not turning on? or is this something else?

im fairly sure that the fan is not running because my car is overheating, i have not had any prolbems with overheating, and its like -20 degrees celcious so even if my car was over heating the cold air would take care of it,
I think its because they messed with my intake manifold at ford last week and well they prob didnt put a sensor back in right, or a sensor is broken.

i found out my fan wasnt running, cause my car was overheating, i was stopped, popped my hood, and the fan was off when it definalty shouldve been on
