Question about 1995 Mercury Mystique

1 Answer

94 4 cylinder Mercury Mystique

Replaced thermostat a month ago...yesterday the car started overheating. I pulled over and the coolant reservoir was FULL...but the fluid wasn't hot. I carefully loosened the cap and let the pressure even out, screwed it back on and it ran fine until I got home. Any ideas?

Its possible you had some air pockets in the cooling system from replacing the thermostat.
I would check the radiator cold from time to time to make sure it is full.

Car overheating


You may have a blown engine head gasket. Check your oil to see if it is milky because water is getting into the oil, and check the water to see if oil is getting into the coolant.
If you have either of these, you may need to have a new head gasket for the engine, and hopefully you do not have a cracked engine head.
This will require a fair bit of work to fix correctly. Your local garage or mechanic may be your next call.
There are some products you can use in the coolant for either of these, but it is only a temporary fix.

Replaced thermostat on pontiac sunfire now there's smoke coming from coolant tank


Sounds like you have a leaking head gasket or damage to the engine from when it overheated.
A leaking head gasket can cause compression to leak into the cooling system and pull coolant into the cylinders which is burned out the exhaust. It does not have to leak into the oil.
A shop would check for exhaust gas in the cooling system and run a compression test on the cylinders.

Check for leaks around the Coolant Overflow Reservoir (the yellow bottle in the middle of the firewall.) I had the same problem with over-heating, and replaced the thermostat with no help. I went to the dealer and picked up the Reservoir for $26~, installed it in 5 mins (at work) and haven't had a cooling issue since.
