Question about 1998 Ford Taurus
If you refilled coolant in rad and didn't leave cap off & run it for a while with heat (not defrost) on inside vehicle, you probably have an airlock.
Let it run until rad fan comes on, & off, 2 or 3 times, and top up rad as needed 1"or 2" from top while it's running. Keep an eye on temperature gauge, that it doesn't overheat, and if it does start climbing too high, shut it off & let it cool down, and retry. If you need to do thermostat, we need to know exactly what engine you have. If you need to get it going fast, just bleed it as described and you may be alright for now. Where is this leak & how bad is it?
