SOURCE: Radiator blockage?

I believe you have a head gasket blown or a cracked head. When you start it up COLD with the cap off, it would push water out immediately. Fill it with plain water and try this. It might not be a bad idea to perform a pressure test too. Also check for antifreeze in the oil. It will get milky looking and might even be over full. If this happens after warm-up, you may just have a plugged radiator. Have it professionally cleaned. The water pump vanes could also possibly be corroded off and it's not effectively displacing coolant. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2000 ford taurus no heat in car

This is a common problem, Ford garage will charge you about 1000.00 to fix it. It's an all day job for someone who knows what they're doing. I wouldn't recommend this if you aren't familiar with cars. If you still want to go at it, get a book for your car, you will like that much better. It has pictures!

Is the blower motor working? If not that is what it is. If it is working then check heater coil out, Could be bad heater coil.

SOURCE: heater blows cold

If no coolant flowing through the heater core then ther is no heat. There are 2 possible root causes needed to check out: 1- THE VALVE TO CONTROL THE COOLANT FLOWING TO THE HEATER CORE IS NOT OPENING AS DESIRED. 2- THE HEATER CORE GOT CLOGGED UP AND NEED TO BE FLUSHED.

I would think you have a badly leaking engine cylinder head gasket. Have a shop test for that.

We were told by a mechanic that there ae some issues with our 1999 Ford Taurus wagon it has no oil pressure and has a cracked reserver now can this damge the engine ? its making a load desieling noice ,has...

Engine oil is the blood of the engine. With out oil pressure the engine will not survive as moving parts will no longer be lubricated. It sounds like the damage has already been done.

Are you talking about a cracked coolant reservoir? If so did you run the car out of coolant and overheat the engine?

From your description it sounds like the motor is done. I wouldn't hesitate to at least explore the option and cost of replacing the motor with a low mileage used engine.

Coolant coming out of reserve tank

In most cases like this, especially if the car is overheting in the meantime and you have white puffy smoke coming out of the tail pipe, it's a sure sign of a bad head gasket or worse...A cracked head.

I say this only if you notice that the reserve tank keeps filling up and building pressure. What's happening, is there is actual engine blow-by pumping its gasses into the cooling system. The result is what you might see there. The reserve tank fills up and the coolant (what's left of it) seeps and gets sucked into the combustion chamber and gets burned with the fuel. (Well, "steamed" would be a better term there....)

Again, IF that is the case, also look at your oil dipstick and the top of the oil cap. Do the stick and / or the underside of the cap look milky? That's another sign of your vehicle in need of some head work.

Considering the cost and labor involved, I sincerely hope that isn't the case! But just to be sure, those are some things you can check for.

Good luck and I hope this helps! :)

Radiator blockage?

The blockage seems to be in the water-body. The water-body is directly mounted on the engine. Over time rust builds up inside it blocking its pipes and corroding its fan so that the circulation ceases.
Your description indicates that the incoming pipe to the water-body is blocked.
