I had some issues with the engine starting to overhead when idle so checked the fan and saw it wasnt turning on. Checked the fuse and it was blown. Fairly straight forward. I replaced the fuse and everything seems to be working fine.

My question is should i be concerned that something was able to blow the 50A fuse that protects the fan? Any other fuse i wouldnt be that concerned but i know that there was a campaign on this model over the cooling fan and just wanted to see if this is something to keep an eye on, or something not too out of the ordinary given its age.

Thanks

Your fan is old and worn and needs more amps to keep it turning... In my 87 taurus it blew the relay in my Constant control relay module... Id say just replace it. The fan moter will most likely run you 40 dollars, you'll have to take apart you fan assembly and replace the motor. It's pretty easy if you know what your doing. but if you want plug and play replacement you can buy the assembly for about 200-300 dollars.
