Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
I have a coolant leak underneath the drivers side of my 2000 Ford Taurus engine. I have refilled the radiator 3 times and it leaks off and on. It appears to stop when the car is parked and running. But when I initially park in the garage it is leaking. There is no moisture coming from the overflow or the water pump area. Is this coming from the coolant line that goes to the transmission? Or is there another coolant line on the drivers side of the engine?

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.

is it possible it is your overflow bottle leaking or too full? If not These cars are bad about headgaskets. Start your car remove radiator cap and let it idle till it is up to temp and top radiator. If you have a leaking gasket or cracked head you would most probably see bubles and the water will try and come out of the radiator fill. What hapens on many is while your driving, combustion gases force the antifreez out into the overflow and it fills up and spills over.

SOURCE: Coolant Problems
ok I would try this.... I would replace the radiator cap once morewith a new one. when I do this I would look at the radiator where the cap seals. is there any anomally there? I would look into doing a pressure test on the coolant system.
