First post but can anyone help me? Have an i6 in a '97 NL Fairlane Concord which is not getting hot at all and the termo fans are coming on early and staying on (bl***y cold in Winter as the heater is not getting hot because the motor is not getting hot). I have changed the thermostat and the temperature centre unit but this has not helped. :? HELP PLEASE !!!

Try checking/changing your temp sensors, if your fans are coming on early then they may be stuffed.

I take it since you have done the thermostat that there is coolant in the system.

any trans mods? i know taking my auto out and swapping for a t5 keeps the thermos on 24/7... if not it'll be a fault in that circuit if you've done the sender already (try putting in a manual switch for the thermo's)

turn your A/c Off, fan speed to 1 or off, crank the temp up, leave car idleing, thermos will kick in when engine temp requires, let the car sit for a bit, IF after doing this it still does not get warm, you need to start looking at the heating side of the car, heater core, assoc plumbing.. etc...

BTW, welcome to Fordmods.

Even with the a/c off both fans still going at low speed. Engine won't get hot enough to get the fans at high speed and thats with it idleing for around 30mins or more
