Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
Coolant was leaking from my vehicle, so water pump and thermostat was replaced. A few days later, I noticed smoke when I parked my vehicle, and discovered that coolant was coming out from underneath, which slowly came to a stop after a few minutes. After adding water to the coolant compartment before going back home, I looked underneath, and discovered it was coming out. I got home quickly, parked the car, and noticed that it was coming out, but diminished and eventually stopped. After letting the car set for a while I checked the coolant compartment, and opened the cap, and the leak started again. Upon tightening the cap, the leak slowly stopped. We have been looking for the source of this leak, and cannot find it. The head gasket is ok. What could this be? Thanks for any help
I don't have the same coolant system that Ford has listed, my is different for my 2000 Ford Taurus SE 6cyl 3.0L. Where can we find the right part. I want to the junk yard 3 years ago and find one but the problem with that one is the top keep popping off. I have replaced the top three times and I am pissed because I love my car but I keep having to spend money on this system. H.E.L.P!!

It's coming from a pipe that gos from water pump to a connection for heating , it gets rusting and small holes in it . It leaks more with cap open because u r letting air in system and let the coolant ce out more !

It is most likely the block core plug also known as a freeze plug, Ford screwed up on the design of the cooling system on 2nd generation Taurus and they corrode out the core plugs, if it is not the one behind the trans on the end of the engine it will be fairly easy to fix, but you will need it up in the air on a lift, and they exhaust may have to be removed.
