Question about 2001 Mercury Sable
Pulled into the garage and switched off engine. Only then did I notice the hiss of steam from the right side of the hood. Not sure if I imagined this or not, but thought I heard a pop before a rush of liquid leaked out onto the garage floor. Lots of liquid, but none leaked until after I'd pulled into the garage (none on the road, driveway, etc.). Later, my husband found a stray rubber black bolt (hex shaped dome head) lying loose on the "a-frame". The bolt is rubber, black and about an inch or so long. It is threaded. My husband checked for antifreeze in the oil and said that looked good. Any ideas as to what happened? If the bolt was some kind of plug, then would the fact that it blew be symptomatic of some other problem, or do we just need to replace the bolt (after we figure out where the heck it goes).
Thanks for any insights.
