Most of the time the cooling fan module (or controller) is to blame for the overheating on the MKZ. Have you got it swapped out yet?

Ok thanks. While I look into this, please take a quick moment to rate my assistance.
Ok. Your vehicle is a 2007. And the reason you do not have that module is because on the 3.5 engine the cooling fan module is part of the fan assembly. On the 2.0 or 3.0 engines they have the module. That is why it technically fits the 2007 mkz.
According to the shop manual the cooling fan will be commanded on anywhere from 206-222F. And remember that fan is duty cycled by the computer, meaning that it can be put on slowly, or it can be on fast. Depends what the computer wants. It is not just a high/low fan.
Ok. Just wanting to see if you were getting anywhere. Thanks.
