If you are losing coolant but not leaking out, there are 2 other possibilities. Does it go intop the oilpan? Easy to verify by looking at dipstick. If no, then it is probably getting into the cylinders and going out the exhaust. Is the exhaust particularly moist? Causes for this would be a blown head gasket or cracked head. If you have more questions, please reply.

    Our 2006 Mountaineer just overheated on the highway and broke down. (head gasket??) and oil and coolant covered our back window. This happened 3 weeks after our A/C failed and dealer disconnected our A/C. Could disconnecting the A/C cause this problem?

Why is my oil life percent is 9 and can I drive still or I have to change engine oil soon for the mercury mountaineer 2006

Regular maintenance is needed for oil changes. If your oil level is dropping you need to keep it up to operating level but you do need to find out why it is burning or losing oil. If your oil is black then it needs to be changed regardless of the miles on it.

Coolant Light is on even when its to the full line, not overheating but i am loosing coolant overnight and have to replace it

You say "when it's to the full line". If you are referring to the plastic coolant reservoir, that is not an indication of how much coolant is in the radiator. You must remove the radiator cap to check the coolant level and too add coolant. If you are pouring coolant into the reservoir, and the radiator is low, then the coolant in the reservoir is probably being pulled into the radiator after you have driven the vehicle. That doesn't mean you are losing antifreeze. It just means you need to put antifreeze in the radiator.

Losing coolant from the reservoir but cannot see any coolant leaking on drive. Fill reservior to MAX and within ~10miles, reservoir is drained. Refill while engine still hot and don't lose nearly as much...

my '01 Jetta had a similar problem. I could always smell coolant and the bottle was always low. I crawled under the car and there it was..a caked on mess of pink antifreeze. There is a plastic intersection 3 way valve where the coolant temp sensor resides. it has 2 bolts and a rubber o-ring. Because it is plastic, it cracks. it drips down onto areas which are really not visible from above and then sizzles and melts onto areas under the engine. The part was only about $25, took 30 min to install and my problem is now fixed. Air was getting into the system through the small crack in the valve further complicating the system operation.

98 subaru, overheating

most likely not. it's most likely the thermostat, it holds the coolant in the engine block to warm it up, then opens to keep the engine at a general temperature range. It goes bad and stays closed, hence the overheating
