There are a few components involved and they need to be tested.
The thermostat and coolant need to be in good shape, does the radiator lose coolant?
Both the fans and fan relay module need to be tested.

Unfortunately, my 2009 Flex (original owner) has now also experienced the overheating/cooling fan issue that appears to be all too common. And, of course, it couldn't happen near home ($175 tow to the dealership). For a female without car knowledge, its a bit scary to have what appears to be a significant amount of smoke suddenly billowing from under the hood of the car. The dealership said its going to cost me about $925 to fix! Does that sound right?
Unfortunately, I've had experience before of being overcharged as a female who knows nothing about cars which is just aggravating and ethically wrong.
Thanks in advance for any helpful responses!
