Yep - if the coolant is inside the car, you've got a bad heater core. The inlet and outlet ports go through the firewall into the engine compartment and connect to hoses there. If the leak is in the engine compartment, the hoses may be cracked from age and leaking.

your antifreeze mix wasn't strong enough so the frost plug/s could've busted. raise the vehicule and inspect while an assistant pours water in the radiator to find leak. next, solve all the leaks and all should be good

How come starter keeps going out on my 2003 ford taures? have replaced it 3 times. great running car otherwise


Most likely this is a heat problem. There are several exhaust shields for the Catalytic converter and pipes. Over time these parts can fall off due to rust or idling in Traffic. If you drive in a Metro area, sitting in Traffic will overheat the parts.

There are some aftermarket products used for wrapping Headers. They are a Flameproof cloth which you wrap around the nearby exhaust pipes. Or look at the underside of your car for missing parts. You may want someone who has seen other Ford Taurus' as they would know what is missing.

Another possibility is overadvanced timing. Ask a Dealer for any Service Bulletins about your problem. Even though your car is older there may be some info. With overadvanced timing the starter is fighting more compression than normal.

If you have a wet seat then it is likely defective weather stripping around the window.

Try this. If the floor is dry, then it rains and the floor remains dry, only gets wet after a drive in the rain or on wet streets, you may have a hole somewhere.

Check for holes from missing rubber grommets or holes in the floorboard or firewall from rust. Check for any rust holes or missing rubber grommets under the car or on the firewall, anywhere water can splash up into the vehicle from driving in rain or running through puddles..

Check wet spots along the carpeting all the way up under the dash, if the wet spot is higher than the floor itself, you could be getting the water from splashing through puddles.

Any holes under the car or in the fenderwell even up on the firewall can cause this problem.

First check for any obvious signs of rust, if none are found then look for missing or defective rubber grommets.
