Question about 2001 Ford Taurus
Be sure to purchase the correct coolant/ antifreeze before starting.
Make sure the engine is cold ( has not run in atleast 2 hours ) raise the left front side of car,remove the plastic shield the runs across the whole bottom.Once removed you will see the drain nut on the drivers side. Using a 19mm wrench ( put a drain pan under car,and you should have safety glass on ) loosen the nut a couple of turns,then go to the top and remove the cap on the coolant resevoir. Finish the lower nut, when the coolant stops the fast flow, tighten the nut hand tight, then a small amount more of tightness with the wrench, ( do not over tighten or it will break and cost you an extra estimated $ 400.00 to replace the rad ).Install the plastic shield,lower car, pour a 50/50 mixture ( mix ahead of time ) of coolant and water into the tank until the level reaches and stays at the full mark, reinstall the cap and start the engine. Stay in the car and watch the temp. gauge, if it rises to the red/ hot area shut the car off and let it cool completely ( atleast 1-2 hours ) then remove the cap and top up the tank. should be good after that, but run again to make sure.
