I posted previously that my radiator was bubbling....
well I realized that this tends to happen when I'm driving slowly up a dirt road, which happens fairly frequently over here on the Oregon coast.
Not much airflow getting through the radiator, and the fan is NOT coming on.
In fact I've never heard the fan come on.
Normal driving at highway speeds, no bubbling! I do have a new rad cap arriving today I think as well.

So, how can I test the fan, and the corresponding thermostat that controls it?
Please note I am not talking about the thermostat that controls the flow of coolant, thank you.

So, 1st off fan IS working, so that's good news.
Comes on at start up as someone mentioned.
AC was on too, so not sure if that has something to do with it.
Had to order the rad cap, genuine Motorcraft. Installed.
Not completely certain but haven't noticed any bubbling lately.
Keeping an eye out. Knock on wood!
Thanks for the help!
