i'm not sure if i'm just supposed to dive right in......i really do need some help trying to figure out what's going on with my a/c...actually,the heat too,but i'm not worried about that anymore! i hate watching my mom sweat as i drive her to doctors appts! i have a 2001 ford escape. his name is vincent von hammond. he likes to be called vinnie.he's a 5 speed.he gets touchy if he hears anyone say bad things about him....so i'm doing this while he's asleep!
i really do love my car....suv...it's the nicest one i've ever owned.i try to take good care of him,but my finances are limited. a nice guy @ a repair shop changed out a relay because my fan wasnt blowing...it seemed ok for a bit.now it's doing it again.the temp guage reads hot after about 10-15 mins,and it just starts blowing air....altho not cold air.i can turn the car off...wait a bit...start it and get the same all over again.usually while idling @ a light, i may get some cold air again.the temp gauge fluctuates.it's freaking me out! am i killing vinnie by driving him anyway?! do these guys have thermostats? well, after reading all this,if you haven't decided i'm nuts,please give me some advice.....about vinnie. thanks!

Soooo, we have a 2001 Escape, the temp gauge suggests overheating after 10-15 min., which also seems to affect the A/C. Any idea if it is a 4 cylinder or a 6 cylinder ( 2.0 or 3.0). Also how many miles are on the odometer?
