Going to check oil filter adapter gasket. Thanks again.

How to install a replacement for electric cooling fan.

It randomly comes on or doesn't come on at all. It does not work manually at all. I suspect the dash unit itself may have a problem, but I'm not sure. When it does function, it has to be on auto and sometimes the fan runs on after the engine is turned off.

The light stayed on until I turned the car off, and has not been on since. Do I need to have the car looked at? The manual says that if the light comes on while driving, that something is wrong with the Passlock system. Does that mean that the car will continue to start?

Can this be a do it yourself job with limited tools?

2006 Explorer sounds like a Jet Engine lately. Rev's real high more and more. Seems like a fan or something but I can't pinpoint it.
Temp gauge spikes sometimes not very often but sometimes. Also I have heard what seems to be fluid in my dashboard sloshing around.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
