Question about 2010 Lincoln MKZ

Open Question

Recurring problem of sound of sloshing liquids behind the dashboard and transmission and radiator fluids mixing, and car overheating or unable to operate.

After 1st few weeks of sloshing sound, car overheated, transmission fluid was found in radiator, and radiator was replaced. Sloshing sound continued regardless. Few months later car stopped on freeway exit. Could not be restarted. Had to be towed. Radiator fluid was found in transmission. Both radiator and transmission were replaced. No sloshing sound heard and no problems for 6 months. Now sloshing sound resumes again. What can be the cause?

SOURCE: temperature control

The radiator cap is at the radiator where you refill the radiator with coolant. Unless it is leaking and you hear a hiss. It may not have anything wrong.Neither will the water pump.If the water pump is bad. It has a small hole that will make it start leaking .Check the engine for leaks at the intake or the water pump.You will know where it is leaking. When the thermostat was removed and hopefully replaced , did you bleed the system ? The system has to be bled to remove air pockets. Or the engine will overheat again. Also check that the radiator fan or fans is turning on . If not you may need to replace the temperature control sensor.(TPS)

SOURCE: 2002 Lincoln LS overheating

The cooling fan on the LS-V8 is hydraulic yes. But it also has a pressure switch on the pump that drives the fan. It is controlled by the temperature sensor. All these things must be taken into account. But the whining sound my lead me to believe that the pump is either low on fluid or is wearing out. The fluid the fan pump uses is the same as the power steering pump container so check it first. The same thing happened to my wife's Lincoln. I replaced the fan as well because everybody told me to do that but it didn't work. I found out that the fan is just a hydraulic motor in reverse it only spins as fast as the pump makes it spin and that is controlled by the temp. sensors. When the engine get's hotter the pressure goes up and the fan spins faster. This adds more power to the engine when it's running cooler because the fan doesn't have to spin at max speed. So good luck. I hope this has solved your problem.

SOURCE: I have just had my 2000 Lincoln Continentals

If it was overfilled this could happen. Check the level according to instructions in your owner's manual. If it is overfull, remove enough to get it back to the correct level. Overheating will cause the fluid to expand but unlikely it will leak unless it was overfilled. I would suspect too much fluid was added.

Pink Milkshake looking fluid in transmissiion


your transmission fluid lines run thru the radiator's transmission cooling cell. When the radiator springs an internal leak, it contaminates the trans fluid with coolant/water mix, giving it the milky pink appearance. Replace radiator and flush transmission.

1991 mazda mx5 eunos roadster radiator clogged with oil


Your radiator is leaking internally, leaking transmission fluid from the transmission fluid cooler into the radiator where the coolant is. You can't fix it, just get the radiator replaced and then flush the coolant.

Can transmition fluid get mixed with antifreeze on chrysler pacifica 2005


No, Your radiator has many small ports which when antifreeze is mixed with oil or transmission fluid creates a chocolate milk looking mixture. This will not cool your engine as it needs resulting in overheating, and or blowing of your head gasket

The radiador and transmission fluids are mixed and the van overheated. Why?


The transmission is cooled by the radiator. The transmission cooling lines go into the radiator where Inside the radiator these is a heat exchanger that has sprung a leak. This is where your fluids are mixing. Your radiator is loosing coolant into the transmission ( not a good thing ) . Your transmission fluid is now contaminated and may fail soon unless the problem is fixed quickly,however the damage has already been done. At the very least you will have to replace the radiator, flush the cooling system and flush the transmission and install a new transmission filter.

Losing fluid and car is overheating - no visible leaks.got opinion from radiator people say head gasket is blown can this be true ? no oil in water or water in oil


you can have a blown head gasket without mixing of liquids, the coolant is going out the tailpipe, and engine compression is overloading the coolant system pressure

Chevy truck 96 cheyenne- I hear what sounds like water gushing when I press on the accelerator. The sound is located behind the center of the dashboard. Any ideas on what it could be?


I think you have air in your cooling system.It will gurgle and sound like sloshing when you step on the gas.check the coolant jug,make sure you have enough Anti-freeze.If the jug is overfilled it can make a sloshing sound also.If you very low,look at the front of the intake where it meets the heads.I've done a few sets of intake gaskets on this engine. Good luck

My trans fluid is mixing with my radiator fluid, what can i do.


I hate to contradict the prior poster, but I would not see how a blown head gasket could get transmission fluid into the radiator. Motor oil, yes, but transmission fluid, no.

the transmission fluid in your tranny runs out of the transmission and up into the radiator to cool it off.

So if there is transmission fluid in the radiator, I'd look for a leak in the radiator. If it is mixing the two fluids then the leak is probalby internal.

Remember that if the radiator is now 'mixing' water and transmission fluid, there is a possibility that the fluid/water mixture may be going back into the transmission as well
