A cracked Intake manifold. Check the manifold in two places, on the front cross over behind the alternator and the base of the heater hose connector on the rear of the passenger side.

How do I burp the coo long system in a Mercury grand marquis


Answer borrowed from BigNslow
Determine the capacity of the cooling system, then properly refill the system at the recovery tank or radiator opening with a 50/50 mixture of fresh coolant and distilled water until it reaches the FULL COLD line on the recovery tank or the radiator is full.

Leave the recovery tank or radiator cap off to aid in bleeding the system.

Start the engine and allow it to idle until the thermostat opens (the upper radiator hose will become hot). The coolant level should go down, this is normal as the system bleeds the air pockets out of the system.

Refill the system with coolant to the proper level.

Turn the engine OFF and check for leaks.

My 1984 grand marquis does not have interior heat.


re check the coolant level, it most likely dropped when your engine reached temp for thermostat to open and took what you had just poured into radiator and put it in the block.

How do i know the thermostat is going bad in a 1990 grand marquis


If anything, it might be stuck partially open. If it were stuck fully closed, the car would really overheat, like boiling hot. You might try taking the radiator cap off when it is cooled down enough, and start the car and wait till it has reached normal operating temperature, so the thermostat should be fully open. Now momentarily squeeze the upper radiator hose together as tight as you can, trying to stop the flow. Look into the radiator and see if you notice a surge of coolant when you let the hose go. If the thermostat is open you should feel the coolant surge when you let your hand go of the hose, and see the coolant coming into the radiator. Just kind of a rough test. If you aren't sure, a new thermostat is always a good idea.

Replaced intake manifold. Now cannot get water/coolant into the radiator. How?


Rasie front of car on hill and jack stands. This will help purge air trapped in system. Leave radiator cap loose, cold engine. Run engine until upper hose is hot and burps air. Shut down, as it cools keep the radiator and reservoir full. Tighten cap and it should **** from reservoir as it cools.

2005 MGM - Need to change coolant


There is only one drain point. Drain the coolant from the system at the radiator. This will remove coolant from the engine. Be sure and have the heater set to hot. Flush the system with a water hose. Fill the system with a 50/50 mix of antifreeze and distilled water. Do not use tap water. Start the engine with the radiator cap off and keep adding coolant until it will take no more and you see no more air bubbles escaping from the radiator. If there are schrader bleed valves on the engine cooling system use them to remove any more trapped air. Put the cap on and start the engine and let it run for 15 minutes while you check for leaks. I would replace the thermostat at this time as it is just good preventive maintenance.
