Question about 2002 Chrysler Concorde

1 Answer

Just had my radiator replaced along with my cooland container. Coolant container had a leak that sprayed antifreze onto what I think is the Catalayic Converter? Now, it still is smoking-a lot. The temp. gauge doesn't indicate a problem though. Could antifreeze have gotten into the Cat. converter? How long would it take to burn off? I don't see a leak anywhere.

It's probably the cap if that's where it's leaking from. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. DO NOT replace it while hot though.

Coolant leak,


Strange but do you think a hose has a pin hole that is spraying coolant up?
check the inner hood for over spray.
Clean the engine then drive it & look for more obscure places that might be wet.

Coolant not getting to the radiator & top hose has a leak so taped it up but now blows out of the coolant tap sparaying and steaming and coolant level dropping under half


Thanks but coolant/radiator fans are not coming on at all wonder if this is why coolant sensor letting out all the coolant & water when the enginee gets pressurised. Not sure why they are not coming on and also not when the car came back from a 3 hour trip last night. We changed the water aux pump which seemed to help a bit but water still ls leaking but not as badlyy

My coolant is leaking and its a big possibility it might be the water pupm or radiator but i think its just a hole in the container that holds the coolant, is ok if i put water in there constant to keep...


Stop leak is a temporary solution and never a long term fix. You need to locate the source of the leak and replace the faulty part. I also doubt that the coolant overflow reservoir is leaking unless something has been done to the vehicle to damage it.

Using water rather than the correct spec coolant mix as a top up is NOT recommended (even for a short period) because, among other things, the coolant mix provides lubrication for the water pump. Constantly adding water rather than the correct coolant mix dilutes the coolant mix and it becomes ineffective.

Your engine needs an efficient cooling system to survive so have the leak investigated and fixed saspo.
If you allow the engine to overheat you will cause very expensive engine damage and end up with a car you will not be able to drive. It is always cheaper to fix the problem.

Location of thermostat


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Container
  • Jack and jack stands or wheel ramps (if needed)
  • Screwdriver
  • 13mm socket or wrench
  • Thermostat and gasket
  1. 1

    Turn the drain valve at the bottom of the radiator counterclockwise to drain the coolant from your Ford Taurus into a suitable container. Depending on the size of the container, it may be necessary to lift the front end of your Taurus with a jack and lower it onto jack stands, or use wheel ramps.

  2. 2

    Follow the upper radiator hose to the point where it meets the thermostat housing at the front of the intake manifold. Loosen the hose clamp and pull the radiator hose off the water connection on the thermostat housing.

  3. 3

    Take out the two bolts on the thermostat housing cover with a 13mm socket or wrench and remove the cover. Clean any old gasket residue from the inside of the thermostat housing cover. Pull out the old thermostat.

  4. 4

    Insert the new thermostat into the thermostat housing with the spring-side facing into the engine. Install the new thermostat gasket. Use a spray adhesive to hold the gasket in place, if desired.

  5. 5

    Reinstall the thermostat housing cover. Tighten the bolts to 89-124 in. lbs. Reattach the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing. Make sure the drain valve on the radiator is closed.

  6. 6

    Fill the radiator with new or reserve coolant. Start your Ford Taurus and allow it to warm up to its normal operating temperature. Check hoses and connections for leaks and tighten hose clamps to stop any leaks, if necessary. Add more coolant as needed.

On the 2005 malibu, where is the radiator? And what substance do i need to put in there? It says cooliant but is that the same thing as water?


The coolant can be found at most stores that sells automotive products. You will need a 50/50 mix of water and coolant. If you had drained you old coolant you can purchase premixed cooland were no water is added. I would purchase two gallons of cooland for you vehicle and change the thermostat as well

Coolant still leaking from my 1996 Isuzu Rodeo.


There is a plastic heater pipe junction behind the inlet manifold against the fire wall that could be brittle and leaking.

Good, you did not add much detergent to the radiator recovery bottle (plastic bottle). You say half a cap, would that be about one tablespoon? If yes, I think it would be ok to drive, but I still would recommend flushing out the system just to be sure it has no bad effects on the cooling. countrycurt0
