If you fill up the coolant container it will get into the radiator if it is low. If your radiator is completely empty remove the highest hose on the engine and fill through the top of the motor. Otherwise the coolant container is the only place to add coolant. Hope that helps!

What years can fit in 1996 mercury ford mystique for the radiator

I don't recommend a used radiator for your car or any car as the radiator is such a VITAL component in the operation of an engine. That said I recommend you do some research and try to find a NEW radiator as many manufacturers supply an all aluminum unit (as opposed to aluminum core with plastic tanks) Brrrrrr. Anyway these aftermarket radiators can be had for $100 or less and perform better than the factory unit. Good Luck

There is water in the reservoir and it is frozen. there should be coolant in there, what should i do?

Since this is the expansion tank for your radiator - test your rad coolant to be sure it is in fact a coolant mixture appropriate for your climate and not just water. If your reservoir is not cracked - pour an equal amount of 100% coolant as there is water in the reservoir. (not the premix stuff) when you run your vehicle the heat from the engine will melt the h2o and mix with the coolant to form a 50% mixturer. Be sure the coolant you add is the same coolant used in the radiator.

I've got a 96 Mercury Mystique, it over heats big time. I changed the water pump and thermostat and no change yet, so i took the thermostat right out to see if that would make a difference, but still the...

Is there white smoke coming out of the exhaust? If so either blown head gasket, crack in cylinder head or crack in engine block. If you line up the tree make a note to not buy another mystique I found them to be troublesome once they start giving trouble.

sounds like the head gasket is no good.pressure is getting into the coolant and overpressurising the resevoir.
if coolant is in the oil,low oil pressure triggered the oil light and check engine trigger results from lost compression.
a compression test will tell you.take a look at the coolant,is there oil in it?
