Question about 1995 Ford Taurus
When I start my car and then drive it very briefly, when I park I get steady drips of coolant which look like they are coming from the radiator tank.
Also, after some drives, when I'm stationary, smoke come from the radiator cap side of the radiator which looks like is dripping on the exhaust or belt system.
Any help is appreciated.
Well this might be not too bad to oh ****. When the engine is cool have an assitant start your car. You stand with the radiator cap in your hand. Make sure the water level is at a level you can see it. When you start the engine look to see if you have bubbles coming up in the water/coolant. I have seen the bubbles from a small stream to boiling out of the top. So pay attention. If you have bubbles it is very possiable that you have a head gasket that has a crack from the cylinder head to the water jacket. If not have your cap checked. Now if this doesn't get to the problem, why are you saying dripping on the exhaust system. If you think you have a water leak in your radiator then you might find a water pressure checker. It is a device that allows you to pressure up the cooling system without starting the engine. Get a mirror and follow the water/coolant.
