You have a failed head gasket

The coolant is going out the exhaust
& the exhaust gases are over pressurizing
the coolant system,thus the bottle over flows

2003 ford taurus overheating


ok check these things #1 check for leaks at the radiator #2 water pump for leaks#3 check for freeze plug leak#4 check to see if your cooling fan works#5 check to make sure the water jug is not leaking#6 fill the radiator with water then start your engine and try to see if you can tell if the water flows,if its not flowing check the thermostat,now you can check the thermostat by putting it down in some boiling hot water if while in the hot water it contracts its ok but i would replace it because it is work to go back to do so,check your radiator cap also,now if the fans are the problem then you should change the coolant temp sensor for the fans ,now i hope after making these check you will be able to solve the problem

1996 Ford Taurus is heating up really quick if driven 5 - 10 minutes over 60 mph


If water pump is old,like over 70,000 miles on it,replace it when you do the fan belt and tensioner.
A new thermostat and a radiator flushing might also be in order. don-ohio (:^)

My 1996 grand prix started to register cooling temp of over 210 degrees. the motor doesn't seem to be overheating. I've replaced the water pump, thermostat, temp sensor, both fan relays, low coolant...


I would first check the cooling fans. To do this unplug the fans and use two jumper wires to hook them direct to the battery and test. If the fans are working I would have the radiator cleaned or purchase a new one. To clean the radiator take it to a professional and tell them you would like it rodded out. You can purchase a new one for about twice the price. I wouldn't worry about the low coolent sensor. By it being on it will not send a message that your vehicle is overheating. If you have changed everything that you say you have and the fans work and radiator is cleaned you may have a blown head gasket. If you have a blown head gasket you would see steam comming out of the tail pipes or water in the oil on dip-stick. Good luck.

Check engine soon and low coolant lights on


It is critical that you pressure test the system with the vehicle turned off and cooled down. Get a tool from the parts store (they can sell you a used one that you return to them and get a full refund). With the car off and cool you fill your radiator with water and screw on a special radiator cap that comes with the pressure test tool and pump up pressure in the system through that special cap. Then with a bright light you look everywhere for a leak from a hose, the water pump, or the radiator. If it's leaking or leaving stain around the intake manifold that would be a sign of a blown head gasket. A product to help with a blown head gasket is THERMAGASKET available on-line only. You may just have a leaking hose or leak by the thermostat or a leak from the water pump (in which case water pump replacement is the safest option).

Water heating radiator and water expulsion oily reddish color


Sounds like you have transmission fluid in the antifreeze. The transmission cooler might be leaking in the radiator. If it is, replace the radiator.

Ford Taurus 1996, coolant comes out throughout the cap every time when car stops


You will overheat the engine if losing coolant.Firstly replace the cap with a new one,Is the engine temperature normal when you stop ? If its over temperature it will still blow out coolant. Check the radiator for blockage of the tubes & ensure the fan belts and water pump are in good order. Worst case is a blown head gasket can test for combustion gases in the coolant

FORD TAURUS 1996 RADIATOR FAN DOES NOT WORK


Test the fan by unplugging it, and jumping off the battery. This will tell you if the fan motor itself is working or not. If it works, post back and I'll tell you how to check the engine codes, a sending unit on the engine could be nfg and causing the fan to not come on. If the fan doesn't come on when jumped, replace the fan motor.
