Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
I've been doing extensive work on my 1999 Ford Taurus. I'm' haveing a problem with the coolant coming out of the expansion bottle after the car is powered down. The coolant rises rapidly and escapes from the neck of the expansion bottle, just under the radiator cap. The cap is brand new. We did a block test and the test came up negative for combustion/emissions gases in the coolant. By-passed the heater core. It has a new Temperature Switch, the relay tested okay, but the cooling fans don't seem to be operating. What else could this possibly be? It's happening after short distance driving, seeming like it's not the radiator. Is there a way to check the fan motor to see if it is bad? Any comments greatly appreciated.
My friend had a 1999 taurus and had the same problem, his coolant would leak from around the overflow bottle because the system was backing up. His problem was a partially plugged radiator. I know this probably isnt the news you wanted to hear, but I'm pretty sure thats going to be your problem. sounds like you've replaced everthing else short of the radiator and water pump. Good thing is i remember him saying it was reasonalbly priced, so good luck.
