Ok, here´s the problem. The fan is not working. I jumped it directly to the battery and it works, so the problem is in the wiring. Would it be the temperature sensor, or the temperature switch that controls the fan? I am leaning towards the switch, as I changed out the sensor yesterday and the fan is still not working. To top it all off, I discovered that the filler neck for the top radiator hose is broken in half. Instead of a plastic tube to connect the hose to, I have a plastic LEDGE!!! So, I snugged the hose down real tight and slapped some gasket sealer on it for a quick fix, which lasted about halfway to work this morning. Water, Water everywhere, and not a drop to cool the engine cause the stupid hose slipped off! So, will a radiator from a ´91 scort fit a ´98 scort?Or am I going to have to shell out the $150 that AutoZone wants for a new radiator? Stupid plastic radiator...what was Ford thinking? or smoking....

yeah plastic sucks but its how they get their costs down in the manufacturing process. Look at it this way, buy a new radiator and it will be a metal one, then it will be fixable in the future.


sorry only trying to be an optamist for once

Well, I checked the part #´s on the autozone website, and they match for the radiator on my 91 and my 98, so it looks like I will just be able to swap them. Not I just have to order the switch.
