Check the water pipe nipple. It's a plastic one underneath the the camshaft. There's a hose connected to it and it breaks of slowly.

Overheating and no heat

With what you describe sounds like the hot water is just heating up but not circulating and cooling correctly. Possible causes, airlock, faulty water pump, check fan belt tension, not broken etc, blockage in engine water way or collapsed hose. Are you losing water at all? Head gasket?

Over heating 2001 Mercury Cougar 2.5 manual

is it losing water? if not is your fan kicking on? if losing water, place piece of cardboard under veh at night to help pinpoint where water is leaking. if not losing water and fan does'nt come on check fan relay. if loses water and don't see leak over night on cardboard, then water pump is leaking thru weep hole but only after heats up and pressure is on need to replace water pump.

Losing there a water drain pipe that comes from the heating system

If you are not seeing a coolant leak on the ground, and you are adding coolant every week, chances are the engine is burning it out the tailpipe. That would be from a leaking head gasket or other internal problem with the engine.

The temp gauge reads correctly for a while then it starts going from cool to hot faster the water can change temp. I have changed the sensor

try the thermostat, located on the top radiator hose. top side of engine. also does it steam?? does it lose water but no leak, does the heat blow hot? if your heat isnt hot and it steams and loses water you may have a cracked head or head gasket. if you have heat, doesnt lose water and doesnt steam it may also be your water pump. most pumps will leak visibly from the weep hole when running

I am not getting as much heat as I should be. The dealer indicates a small leak into # 2 cylinder thru the intake manifold, but the heat should still be there, also they say the thermopstat is OK. ...

The heater core is the highest point in the cooling loop, so as you lose anti freeze the heater core is the first thing that dosen't get any hot water, and if you lose enough fluid the thermo couple will not be under water so that even though your engine is hot the gauge won't read correctly. get that leak into the cyl. fixed, it's going to give you trouble until you do.

05 jeep cherokee is leaking antifreeze. the car was making a clanking sounds for a few days, that noise has now stopped and it is now over heating and leaking fluid. the heater is also now switching...

It could be the water pump, the air switches from hot to cold because the heater core is the highest point in the cooling system so as you run low on water you lose heat, if the water pump has siezed you are in danger of losing the serpentine belt, so don't wait to get it fixed.

Engine over heats,Im losing antifreeze, smaller fan does not work but the large fan works fine. I have flushed the coolant and changed therastat.

Can you see where the antifreeze may be coming from. it could be the weep hole in the water pump letting the water out, this is "saying the water pump is bad " or it could be a simple problem as the coolant cap isn't holding the pressure and needs to be replaced. This will cause a car to over heat and lose coolant.

My wifes 01 celica is using a expansion tank full of water every 2 to 3 weeks but not over heating however when the water runs out the heater stops working???

idt you should be using water and i think you're talking about the radiator with the reservoir. you should be using collant made for your vehicle. and as far as the water running out. you may have a lose radiator cap or a lose hose fitting. or even a cracked hose
