It is probably low on coolant or is air locked. Make sure the rad is full to the top and there is coolant in the overflow bucket. When you put the rad cap on, do not tighten it all the way. Just turn it on past the first stop. Run the car with the cap loose like that for a couple days and keep checking the coolant level in the rad. Keep the heater turned on as well and the cooling system should fill and force the air out. After a couple of days the rad should stay full and you can tighten the cap to it's proper position. Hope this helps.

Please tell me where the thermostat is located. Thank you!! What are some of the symptoms of a sticking thermostat?


The thermastat is at the end of the radiator hose on the engine, under the housing the hose attaches to. Over heating, heater blows cold, is the symtoms.

After flushing radiator for 1986 Ford Taurus, where do the coolant go? In the radiator or in the reservoir? And Do you have to idle with heat at full blast before adding the coolant?


Put the coolant directly into the radiator until it's full. Start the engine and run it, watching the fluid level. Keep the coolant within one inch of the neck. Fill the reservoir about half way when the radiator is full.

1998 ford tarus over heating


There is a lot more to the cooling system than the radiator and thermostat. 97 and 98 taurus' are prone to cooling fan failure. They also have issues with the coolant turning to a rusty colored sludge that can plug the radiator, and it let go long enough can eat the fins off the impeller in the water pump even cause it to break free from the shaft.

Overheating


You have an air lock in the cooling system.
Do this: pull upper radiator hose off the radiator leaving it connected to the block, pour coolant into hose until filled ( you might have to do it to the radiator also). Once filled reconnected hose back to the radiator, then fill resevior to proper level. Start car turn heater on full. Let car run with cap off resevior until it starts pulling coolant in. Once warmed up shut car off let cool. Check fluid level again.

2. CHECK/REPLACE THERMASTAT
