yep, new bits can fail straight out of the box.
now if the fan isn't coming on why do you think the engine is running hot?
there's no reason to have to buy a motorcraft unit
the electric fan doesn't usually run that much, usually only after idling
for ages and then only for a short burst (unless there's something wrong of
and I think there are different switch temperatures depending on whether the
car has aircon or not (the granada does)
hope this helps
