Question about 1996 Mercury Mystique
If you are seeing coolant leaking from your car, then you have a leak. It could be the radiator, a hose, or the heater core. The other possibility is that if you are using straight water instead of water/antifreeze mix, then the water is boiling and overflowing the reservoir. I will assume this is not the case.
The car does not overheat at cruising speeds because there is enough air and coolant flow through the system to keep the engine temperature under control. When you stop and go, you lose the air flow. Check also if your cooling fan is running when the engine is warm and the car is stopped with the AC off. You should be able to hear it from beside the car.
You need to find the leak and repair it. This is a simple task. Simply get a flashlight and look for source of the green coolant. Once you have determined the source, you know which part to replace.
