Water in car

I suggest taking a garden hose and have someone spray your car while you are inside finding the leek stop the leek first .Take a house fan and an extention cord out to car, let fan blow on wet area until dry. another idea is to use a hair dryer. If you dont stop leek you will have a mold problem in no time. If this was helpful please leave good feedback.

98 Ford Windstar Overheating Issue - Help!

you might want to stop at Autozone and pickup their borrow tool a pressure tester. it will hook up to the radiator(do this after the car has not run for 8 hours ) Make sure car is full of coolent the engine will be cold so you wont have to worry about getting burnt, pressureize system about 13 pounds look for leeks yo should see coolent comming out where the steam was leaking out if no coolent leeks and you will know its not leaking if the pressure gauge does not drop pressure. I would suspect a stuck thermistat, Before changing the thermistat I. would perform a block leek test. Autozone has a block tester(another free tool) you must purchase block test fluid about $8.00 US run car up to temp make sure coolent resovour fluid is down about 3 inches so u dont get any coolent in tester. put blue fluid in tester put tester in resivour squeeze bulb for up to 2 minutes if color changes to yellow your car will need a head gasket.

Low coolant

The best way to check this is with a radiator pressure tester this will allow you to pressurize the system and find out where the leak is.

91Mazda 626 dies suddenly after 10 minutes running fine

I had the same,drove me nuts,made sure of fuel and spark(about 10 times),all good.anyway after it stopped looked under bonnet to find petrol coming out of carb,(didn't notice this before because the petrol had evaporated by the time i looked).took carb apart ,cleaned and checked jets,all resonable.Then i looked at the float seemed good but checked by putting into boiling water only to find small bubbles coming out of the float !!!!! thus float not floating right, too much petrol and flooding and then stopping.But let it cool down and everything sorts itself out and your good for another 10 minutes.You can check for air leeks by spraying wd40 around suspected areas and looking for no expert but hope this helps.
In short air leaks bad. Float not floating bad.
