Question about Cars & Trucks
My truck is using alot of water. I have not noticed it leaking on the ground. But I can always tell the water is low when my heat stops working. I add coolant & the heat works again. Where could the water be going & why would that make my heat stop working??
The heat stops because there is not enough antifreeze to run through the heater core in the cab. The symptoms you are describing sound like the head gasket is leaking antifreeze into the cylinders and it is turning to steam a going out the exhaust. You need to check the oil and be sure that it is not milky looking. That would mean that the coolant is leaking into the oil pan too and that is very bad. Also you need to know that antifreeze will destroy the catalytic converter and it wont pass emissions. You are looking at several thousand dollars worth of repairs.

I just had the same problem. Ford design the intake manifold with plastic water crossover which cracks. The coolant will leak onto the top of the block and and then down the back of the engine. This intake design is a known defect and was ocvered under by Ford for 7 years past the date of mfg. The crack either is in the crossover or the thermostat housing. I happed on this when I found the same leak and traced it back to the thermostat housing. I changed the thermostat, but it leaked worse. You can pickup a aftermarket for $200 and it's about 4-6 hr job to replace.

I don't have the same coolant system that Ford has listed, my is different for my 2000 Ford Taurus SE 6cyl 3.0L. Where can we find the right part. I want to the junk yard 3 years ago and find one but the problem with that one is the top keep popping off. I have replaced the top three times and I am pissed because I love my car but I keep having to spend money on this system. H.E.L.P!!
