Question about 1996 Mercury Mystique
I have a 1996 mistique and after heating it for 10-15 minutes the heat meter is showing overheating, but when i checked the engine or radiator it is still cool. My mechanic told me the he replaced the head valve cause he thought it might be some air is leaking but it did not fix the problem. And also their is no heat when i turn on the the heater. The car has 108,000 miles already.
Replace the thermostat. top up coolant using is it dura something ford 50% mix and leave the cap open run the car about 2500 while sqeezing the hoses - your assuming there may be an air lock in the waterline and you need to remove it. it wants to go to the highest point. so leave it open and drive around. make sure your over full it will stopn
