I just brought my 09 Flex this past June and I am experiencing the same problems with the overheating and air conditioning not working when the car is not moving. Has anyone come up with a solution to these two problems or is it going to be trial and error and a whole bunch of money to get this problem solved

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!

I just bought my 2009 Ford Flex used from a Ford dealer and got an base warranty. I am experiencing these same issues with overheating and come to find out, the cooling fans are NOT covered under my warranty. Surprised? Not after reading this! It is going to cost me almost $1000 to fix this. Very disappointed in ford. If they know about the problem, why don't THEY fix it????
