THE UPDATE:
Didn't get to pulling the T-stat. The overheating weirdness has not recurred. I cleaned and inspected all connections for good measure, and she's been fine ever since. I'll post any findings when I change the coolant.

For future reference, if the cooling fan resistor fails, get yourself a quality resistor that's in the 0.2 - 0.25 ohm/50 - 75 watt range and an aluminum heat sink. That way, you won't need to replace the whole fan assembly.

Thanks!

Actually, the same resistor with a different first 4-character segment of the P/N, is used in radiator fans of many Euro Ford models. It looks the same, and the remainder of the P/N is identical. I am guessing that the first 4 characters have something to do with the region/OEM installing company, or whatnot.

The first 4 of the engineering number are year and model. So yes, can be similar just for another vehicle, and there is code for replacement parts.

Doesn't mean they are the same though, because the middle number is usually same across platforms for same general part, and then the revision at the end means many things.
