Where could I find the coolant drain plug for the engine block on a 2006 Crown Victoria LX vin W. I'm looking for a good place to install a mechanical temperature gauge?


this are is not a good location for a mechanical temp gauge
It is at the bottom of the coolant galley in the block and will be in the sediment that collects in a block
hot water rises and where you want it is where the water will be at the hottest ( bottom of the block is the coolest water) so select a point at the thermostat housing or a plug in the head that goes into the water jacket

Temp guage Rises/almost oveheats when Heater is on. Temp Rises to almost H then drops fast to just above C and repeats but only while heater is on


The cooling system has an air pocket in it. The best solution is to have someone with a vacuum coolant system,and drain and replace the coolant. The only other way,is to jack up the front of the vehicle,and take off the radiator cap,and run it with the heater on full blast. Wait till the thermostat opens,(when coolant level drops)...then top it off while its still running.If you buy ,or have a friend who has a tool called an "Air Lift",..it will make this MUCH easier,and cleaner to fix.

2005 Tahoe, temp gauge goes up then back down


Check your coolant level it may be low, that is the most common cause of this, air in the system. If the system is low you have a leak, find it.

How to change a thermastat


let the engine cool off then slowley remove the radiator cap find the drain for the radiator (bottom), drain the cooolant into a container and dispose of properly no contamination this way. follow the upper radiator hose to the thermastate housing carfully remove the bolts from the housing. if the housing dont lift off tap lightly with a screwdriver handle (not too hard could break), lift housing off and find thermastat notice the position from top and bottom of thermostat replace and refill coolant. run engine for a bit watching the temp gauge till engine warms up the check antifreeze level add if needed.

When I am at a stop light or idle elsewhere, my jeep will start to run "rough" and then immediately the temperature gauge rises. A few times it cools itself down within a few minutes, but it has...


Coolant level first, if it is good, start it up and watch the temp gauge, you need to see if the fan is coming on when it should. Look for leaks once the temp rises and pressure is built up. Check the hoses, coolant reservoir, radiator (the top is plastic and could leak at a seam as mine did) Another possibility is the fan clutch, check to see if the fan comes on once it gets warmed up.
Hope this helps. Cheers!

Van is losing water but the overflows continues to stay full. No cracks in radiator and the cap where you put in the water has a hose going in but no hose on the opposite opening.


In a properly working system, the coolant expands as the coolant temp rises. The excess coolant flows into the overflow container by the hose that runs from the bottom of the overflow to the top of the radiator, under the radiator cap. When the coolant begins to cool down, it contracts,drawing fluid back into the radiator from the overflow. The water pump has a "weep" hole located near the bottom of the pump housing that will leak coolant if the pump is going bad. In some engines, the 3.0, the water pump is located under the camshaft timing belt cover, and is a BEAR to deal with. However, the coolant should be pulled into the radiator when the engine cools, so check that the hose from the top of the radiator is attached to the bottom of the overflow and that it is not blocked or pinched. Have the system pressure tested to verify that it has no leaks. Hope this helps. Dano

Temp gauge rises to hot then starts to cool then rises again to hot back and forth


Start by checking the coolant level.If it is low,top it off with the recommended coolant.If it is full,the fan clutch could be the culprit.The fan aids in the cooling of the engine as well.The fan is connected to a clutch that helps the the fan rotate at a certain rpm.If the clutch is leaking,then cooling performance is reduced.
