I would think you have a badly leaking engine cylinder head gasket. Have a shop test for that.

Car loses water from overflow cap. Replaced water pump, thermostat and overflow bottle and cap.


Stop me if this has NOTHING to do with your problem (or if it's already been solved)...I don't know a lot about cars so...My Ford Taurus kept overflowing antifreeze from the reservoir cap. Car started to over heat and kept spilling"/dumping" antifreeze every time I turned the car off. The antifreeze reservoir had been replaced less than a year prior, and water pump, radiator, etc looked at. I got a free estimate that stated my water pump was NOT the issue, but I did need a new radiator and my reservoir tank needed to be replaced (again)....$800 parts and labor.... However...I noticed the overflow holes on the tank, and also that the orange liquid (antifreeze), was also spilled around the cap lid. I also noticed the CAP on the antifreeze reservoir would loosen when tightened completely- hence, not sealing correctly. So I went to the dealer, bought a new reservoir cap for $15, replaced it, and never had an issue after! I also found out that the CAP was a DEALER PART ONLY, and when the tank itself was replaced, the CAP was the OLD one! Problem fixed! Maybe it's similar? Or something "more serious".

Heater on 2004 ford tauras stopped getting hot suddenly


check coolant level first and make sure no air trapped in system. Ask shop to use evac/fill equipment to purge air.

cold engine - remove cap & fill radiator with 50/50 mix antifreeze/water. install cap.

fill reservoir 3/4 full. run engine until upper rad hose is hot. let cool and see if it sucks coolant from reservoir. Keep res 3/4 full. repeat.

Refilling coolant reservoir twice in one week. I run the A/C on max and the outside temperature has been in 90's


If you don't find a leak, head gasket failures are very common on these ford engines. Just ask a Windstar owner LOL

I am leaking antifreeze somewhere near the reservoir when I shut the engine off (1996) would this be due to a bad cap or crack tank?


The tank is probably cracked. It is common for the plastic tank to crack over a period of time.

Problem with my 2000 ford taurus water pump.


I just had that same problem with the antifreeze leaking and I thought it was my water pump but I pulled the antifreeze tank off and it was cracked all along the bottom and that was causing the antifreeze to leak out real bad so I went to a nearby junkyard and found a new tank and replaced the cracked one and now it works just fine with no leaks. I hope this works for you liked it worked for me.

Need to locate radiator cap on 1996 ford taurus


It's on top of the radiator. Don't add stop leak to the reservoir, it will only create other problems.
