This could be due to poor maintanence -the coolant in there just broke down. I am willing to bet your coolant bottle is almost a black color, and not opaque like it should be - - I have the same car and noticed this substance when I changed the thermostat - I just flushed the entire cooling system and refilled it with new coolant.

Check list for answers to my Montero overheating...


Methods to trouble shoot
(1) check thermostat device. if thermostat is stuck - not working half the water used in cooling system is missing once engine heats up which can lead to over heating. (may need mechanic to check this)
(2) check radiator has water in it . if it is low there may be a leak in cooling system somewhere check rubber hose and radiator are not leaking.
(3) check fan belt is engaging fan in front of radiator
(4) if electric fan check if fan activates once car has heated up
(5) check oil level of engine on dip stick. If low oil add some oil and re check oil dip stick. DO NOT PUT whole oil pack in (don't laugh I know someone who did this and has to go to mechanic and get oil removed)
(6) if rubber hoses blow off connectors then you may have a broken head gasket seal. A pressure test of the radiator will confirm this.
(7) Possible water pump failure. Check by taking cap off radiator and run engine see if water is flowing in radiator and test if water is heating up in the radiator. Remember to put cap back on radiator when finishing test.
(8) check if bubbles or oil are in radiator water this could indicate a blown head gasket problem also.

Where is the radiator cap 2001 mercury cougar V6 diagram


The drain plug is actually just a screw that requires a large phillips head to remove. It is located on the passenger side at the bottom of the radiator. The best way to locate it is to find the tube that runs from the coolant reservoir to the radiator and look underneath where it hits the radiator. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My car overheats very easy.i can drive 1 exit on the highway and the temp goes up very fast. i dont know what it could be. there is always fluid in the reserve area and doesnt seem to be getting low or im...


COULD BE THERMOSTAT IF TOP RADIATOR HOSE IS NOT HOT AND BOTTOM RADIATOR HOSE GOING TO WATER PUMP IS HOT THE THERMOSTAT STICKING PARTIALLY CLOSE.IF TOP HOSE IS HOT THE RADIATOR,ENGINE BLOCK HEATER CORE NEED FLUSHING OUT.IF WATER PUMP WEEP HOLE LEAKING REPLACE WATER PUMP, FAULTY WATER PUMP WILL CAUSE ENGINE TO OVER HEAT.REPLACE RADIATOR CAP MAKE SURE YOU HAVE 50 / 50 MIX SOLUTION ANTIFREEZE AND WATER IN COOLANT SYSTEM. IF ALL LOOKS GOOD CHECK ENGINE OIL ON DIP STICK, IF OIL IN DIP STICK LOOK LIKE MILKSHAKE YOU HAVE BLOWED HEAD GASKET THAT WILL CAUSE ENGINE OVERHEATING WHILE DRIVING CAR IN SHORT DISTANCE AND ENGINE OVERHEATING.

Where is the power steering dip stick located on a 2002 Caravan?? Is the stem a certain color?? (it's for an old girl friend who lives out of state) :)


The dip stick is part of the cap on the top of the power steering pump. The cap and stick is usually colored black. When you remove the cap( it twists right off), pull the cap straight up and turn over. The stick is right there. Its about 3 or 4 inches long. It will be marked for the proper amount of power steering fluid you need, just like the oil dip stick. Hope this helps.

How and where do I add power steering fuild to a 1989 Brougham? Can't find the dip stick for the steering fuild and don;t kn ow when I should add the fuild. Can you help?


You add fluid at the P/S reservoir which is belt driven. There is a large cap on top. Remove the cap and there is a built in dip stick. Unless you have a leak you will never have to add fluid.

My 1999 alero is overheating and engine coolant is leaking


hi, i dont know about the dipstick, but your overheating problem is most likely to be the thermostat...sounds like its stuck in the closed position,not allowing colder water to circulate, hence the overheating.......needs changing

Milky solution on bottom of oil cap and dip stick


I'm afraid you may have water in your oil, has the car recently overheated or have you driven through high water? Many times this is a sign of a blown head gasket. You should have it looked at and change the oil. Let me know how it goes and good luck. lone99star
