The radiator cap is to actually located on the coolant reservoir on the passenger side of the engine. This is where you will fill the radiator from. There is no cap on the radiator itself.

Radiator needs topping up


No radiator cap. It has a square box called coolant expansion tank. It will have a cap with an embossed symbol on top of it.It can be opened by unscrewing it. Some models may require that the cooling system be bled of air after refilling. Check your user manual.

How to know when there is enough antifreeze in radiator


Hello there and welcome to fixya
Checking your radiator fluid:
antifreeze2.pngEvery modern vehicle has a Radiator fluid overflow compartment that is translucent so you can see where the coolant level is without removing the cap. On the side of the compartment there is a full line and an add line. the coolant should be between the two lines. If it's below the add level add 50% water/coolant to the full level.
The green line is the full line, the red line is the add line in the picture.
If you don't have antifreeze but you need fluid, add distilled water,not ordinary tap water, so mineral deposits won't build in the radiator and cause corrosion or blockage. However, you should keep the correct ratio of water and coolant to prevent corrosion and for the highest level of overheat or freeze protection.
To check the fluid IN your radiator
radcap.png you will need to remove the radiator cap. DO NOT remove the radiator cap while the engine is hot. The contents are under pressure and many people have gotten severe burns by removing the radiator cap when it is too hot.
Notice the word "caution" on the cap in the picture.
It goes on to say the contents are under pressure.
IF you have no choice, but to remove the cap when hot, use a towel and remove it slowly to release pressure before you get the cap off.
The fluid in the radiator should be at the top of the radiator.

Make sure you keep 50% water/coolant mixture in the radiator. Some people put more antifreeze in during the winter, but never put more than 70% coolant. It will reduce it's ability to carry heat away from the engine and prevent corrosion.

Where is the radiator cap on a 2000 taurus


Well, if your vehicle was equipped with a radiator cap, it would be located on the radiator. However your vehicle does not have one. There is, however a pressure cap located on the coolant reservoir. This information is covered on page #150 in the Owner's Manual. (complete with pictures to show you where it is.)

If you do not have an owner's manual for your car, you can download a FREE PDF version at the link below.

1999 Voyager-need to add antifreeze-but how?


There is a coolant expansion tank (WHITE OR OFF WHITE)..not the windshield washer !!
The coolant tank should have a strongly made cap where the washer will just have a flip up cap.
DO NOT PUT COOLANT IN WASHER ...COOLANT WILL RUIN WINDSHIELD.
Some of the tanks are kinda hidden.Best to look in owners manual...it will show a photo.
only certain models are added to radiator...but you should be able to see radiator cap if it is not a sealed radiator....MOST ARE SEALED RADIATORS TODAY .Some have radiator caps with a coolant resevoir just to keep it topped off...others have a coolant expansion tank and the radiator does not have a cap.

Radiator overflow steaming when driving 15 to 20 mile distance, don't have a manual to see if there is another location to put in radiator fluid or water, temp is normal, and nothing seems to be leaking,...


Yes, the cap could be it. But, I would also check the strength and concentration of the antifreeze/coolant to make sure it's 50/50.

Also, check that the fan is coming on for the radiator, even though it may seem to not be overheating.

Good luck on this repair.
