Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
My 1992 Ford Taurus keeps overheating. I keep refilling coolant 50/50 but still overheat can't see anything on the ground but when I've gone about a mile steam is pouring out of the hood of the car. I can make it 10 miles to work. The oil dip stick looks good. Then some days it doesn't overheat.
Thermostat is faulty.
It can be found by grabbing the top radiator hose and following back to the engine. The housing this hose is clamped to is the thermostat housing. Remove the 2 bolts, and the cover o reveal the thermostat.
It should cost less than $20 for a thermostat and gasket.
Replace it and your overheating isues will go away.
Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated.
