I bought it online on summitracing.com or try thepartsbin.com depending on the fan speed and style the price varies. Also u need to get a temp control to activate the electric fan.

My heat sucks too in my Lincoln (LS 2002) Idk what's up. It all started about two years ago when I had my radiator power flushed, (supposed to do as part of the "maintenance") All the crap in there made my thermostat stick so I had to by a new one. Ever since then my heat sucks! I live in New England and I need heat! I start my car and let it run for 15 minutes in the morning and my temp gage is right in the middle but it's blowing barely even warm air. Once I start driving it eventually will blow warmer air but it's still not right. It really sucks. Could it be something simple like adjustng my thermostat? did you ever get your heat working again??

They are susceptible to air pockets and have a very intricate bleeding procedure. I suspect that, since it started when work was done that required bleeding. Top it off and follow the procedure to a T for a possible free fix. If you had that much crud in there, consider a heater core flush before bleeding.

It sound like your secondary pump I forgot what it was called but had to replace mine . Its a pump that pumps water through your block at low speeds or at Idle mine did the same thing for years.until I took it in and found it wasn't working . I replaced now my car heats the cabin normally .

i got a mechanic that install a bunch of parts to see if the car stop overheating and in the end i burn the engine,then i take it to another mechanic to re-build the engine and hi find out that the cause of the overheating was a clog heatercore.

That doesn't sound right. A clogged heater core would prevent the heat from working, but alone, should not cause the car to overheat. It's a loop at the top of the system, sort of like a cul-de-sac is to street. Coolant still flows normally without it. Granted, it does serve to further cool your engine when the heat is on full blast, because it's alike a second miniature radiator. That's why they tell you to blast your heat when you're overheating. But alone it won't cause overheating. Sounds like you're getting bad advice for the second time. (A good mechanic doesn't just start replacing parts willy-nilly.) I'm also suspicious that the mechanic said you needed a new motor. The LS has a fail safe that shuts the system down at critical temperature spikes. A mechanic told my buddy the same thing and it was a $120 collant reservoir. I think you're gettin played bro.

has not been over midway on temp guage since i did the bypass. have had to replace the water pump a month later. still tends to loose some coolant occationally so i still check coolant level daily but yes the car has not over temped at all since the bypass.
gonna get this thing cause i know its some matter of resetting systems, clearing codes, purgeing coolant circuit and getting it all in the correct order to satisfy every possible senario. i do know this system is a piece of crap but i think it is possible to master it. the car is to nice to scrap, yet!!

I got the same problem and the mechanic change the water pump.termostast,radiator,and like 2 sensors and in the end it was the heater core that was block
