Question about 1996 Ford Thunderbird LX
The radiator the hoses an thermostat have all been replaced in the last month...the car heats up to the point that the lite goes on then comes down...there is know heat either...i checked for an air pocket an there r none
Possible that you have a headgasket leak. When the vehicle is cold open the rad cap and make sure the coolant is at the top of the rad. With the rad cap off start the engine. leave the cap off and and warm up the engine till the thermostat opens and you should at that point need to add coolant if there was any air the the cooling system. with the cap still off and the rad topped up wait until are the air bubble out of the cooling system then replace the rad cap. If this solve your problem your are OK, but if the bubbles keep coming and the vehicle keeps over heating it is possible that you have pressure from a blown heat gasket entering in the cooling system thus have the system pressure checked.
