Question about 1996 Ford Thunderbird LX
The car overheats only at ilde, but whe i drive it, the temp neddle goes about 3/4 the way but never touches hot but it never comes down below the normal mark it only overheats at idle when i have it parked and running, there is no antifreeze odor, no coolant coming through the tail pipes, oil is clean and so is coolant. my resovior jus overflows after overheating could it be air in the system?, the top hose to the thermostate is warm fan comes on, pleazzzzzze help me out if you can what would you think is going on i dnt wanna repalce any gaskets, i also hear a whistling nosie i dnt think its the waterpump i dnt kno.
First place to look is the thermostat. When a thermostat fails, it prevents additional coolant from entering through the reservoir. Coolant backing up into the reservoir is another symptom of a bad thermostat. The reason you don't experience overheating when you drive is sufficient coolant is being pumped through the system by the waterpump.
