Question about 2004 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Snapped off radiator manifold fitting.

While driving on the highway, I began to smell radiator fluid. The engine light came on and I pulled over. Upon my inspection, I noticed the hose going into the radiator (in the far back near the fire wall) was unattached. The fitting on the manifold had snapped off. Since the fitting and manifold is all one piece, it is not covered under a Premium warranty issued by Royal. Of course, this repair is very expensive even though it is a small piece of plastic. Any suggestions?

Radiator fluid leaking down back of engine. Car started smelling real bad, then minutes later began to overheat. Immediately pulled over and shut car off. The only visible signs of anything wrong is r


There are welsh plugs in the block and head/s at the rear of the motor. They are prone to rusting out . I would say that there was a leak and the coolant under pressure started squirting out causing the overheat. Boiling water escaped under the cap or the hose or tank split . Unfortunately to replace the welsh plugs the motor has to come out as there is no room to work in. So while the motor is out replace all of them as they will all be rusty on the inside. At this point and from your description of immediately shutting down I would not expect and problems with the engine but to be on the safe side it would not hurt to have a compression test done to check head gasket and for cracks.

I can answer some of your questions without being there in person.
The smell inside the van is from fresh air entering the venting system. Not sure why you don't get it from all vents. The fresh air intake is in front of the windshield and will pick up any smells from the engine compartment.
Loosing the serpentine belt would not necessarily cause you to loose ps fluid, but having a leak could drain the pump and damage the bearings in the pump, causing the pump pulley to drag on the belt.
The ps pump could be in the final stage of failing.
And the shaft seal in the pump could be leaking fluid onto the engine and exhaust.

Where is the thermostat located in the 06 stratus


  • Find the location where the upper radiator hose connects to the intake manifold of the engine by tracing it from the radiator to thermostat intake housing bolted to the intake.
  • 2 Remove the radiator hose from the thermostat intake housing by loosening the band clamp that secures it into place. With the clamp loosened, pull the hose off the housing.
  • 3 Remove the two bolts that secure the housing to the intake manifold and then lift the housing off the intake.
  • 4 Lift the thermostat out of the intake manifold and place the new thermostat into the hole. The end of the thermostat with the pin protruding from it sticks out of the intake manifold.
  • 5 Lift the thermostat intake housing gasket off the intake manifold and place the new one onto the intake manifold.
  • 6 Place the thermostat intake housing onto the intake manifold and bolt it into place. Reconnect the hose using the band clamp.
  • Six-Cylinder Engines
  • 1 Drive the Dodge onto a set of front-end ramps and secure the parking break. Allow adequate time for the radiator fluid to cool down. Thirty minutes is usually adequate.
  • 2 Loosen the petcock on the lower right hand side of the radiator and drain all of the radiator fluid into a drain pan. Close the petcock once drained.
  • 3 Trace the lower radiator hose to the location where the hose connects to the engine block. The metal housing the hose connects to is the lower thermostat outlet. Remove the hose from the outlet by loosening the band clamp and then by pulling the hose off the outlet. Be careful--some fluid will drain from the hose.
  • 4 Remove the two bolts that secure the thermostat outlet to the engine block and pull the thermostat outlet off the block.
  • 5 Discard the O-ring inside the bottom edge of the thermostat outlet and place a new one into the outlet.
  • 6 Pull the thermostat out of the engine block and replace it with a new one. The end with the pin protruding from it sticks out of the engine block.
  • 7 Place the thermostat outlet onto the engine block and secure it into place. Reattach the lower radiator hose with the band clamp.
  • 8 Open the radiator filler cap located on top of the radiator and fill the radiator with the fluid previously drained from the system.

    I'm not too familiar with Saturns ('98). How do I fill the radiator. There is little smoke around where the engine is and I just checked the oil, coolant, and transmission and they're fine, so I'm guessing...


    if the radiator was empty the engine would be extremely overheated, some dash lights would be telling you about it and you could smell it. Radiator coolant level is maintained through the overflow container on top of the inner fender, it looks kind of like a wiper fluid container. opaque plastic, snap open lid, connected to radiator via a hose, has hot and cold fill lines on the outside.

    Thermostat/radiator warning light comes on every 3 days - I add fluid to the overflow tank but it is empty after 2-3 days. what's the deal?


    Your water pump is leaking, have it repaired immediately or it will seize up, snap your timing belt, and ruin the engine.
