How do I burp the cooling system in a Mercury grand marquis


Answer borrowed from BigNslow:
Determine the capacity of the cooling system, then properly refill the system at the recovery tank or radiator opening with a 50/50 mixture of fresh coolant and distilled water until it reaches the FULL COLD line on the recovery tank or the radiator is full.

Leave the recovery tank or radiator cap off to aid in bleeding the system.

Start the engine and allow it to idle until the thermostat opens (the upper radiator hose will become hot). The coolant level should go down, this is normal as the system bleeds the air pockets out of the system.

Refill the system with coolant to the proper level.

Turn the engine OFF and check for leaks.

My coolant isnt staying in recovery tank hoses look what else should i check and the hose from tank the short one does not hook up to anything the one by the cap


You need enough coolant to fill bottom of tank when the engine is cool, so you might have to add coolant. There should be a line showing on the tank for cold level, don't overfill. When coolant gets hot it flows into tank then sucks back into engine when cooling off. The small hose is for an overflow and to let the tank breathe.

Temperature gauge is at normal but coolant is coming out recovery tank when I drive it


You have trapped air in the cooling system, purge the air out of the system. You can do this by raising the car front end as high as possible and filling the coolant recovery tank to the brim leave the cap off, then run engine until it reaches operating temperature, then shut it down and run cold water over the radiator core, the coolant tank will be sucked dry most likely as the air is purged and replaced by coolant.

Where is the Thermostat for 1999 ford contour located


On the 4 cylinder 2.0 L the thermostat is located where the upper Radiator hose and the recovery tank hose connect to the housing on the block. Disconnect the Neg (-) (Black) terminal. Drain and recycle the coolant, remove the air intake resonator, the recovery and upper hoses. remove the three bolts to the housing, remove the thermostat and )-ring (important, replace the O ring with your new thermostat. re assemble as you have taken apart. tork the bolts to 71-97 inch lbs on the 6 cylinder 2.5 L the process is similar, except there are only two bolts on the housing, tork the bolts after you have installed the new one to 15-22 ft lbs. I hope this solves your issue, thanks
