Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
This is kind of curious so bare with me. Two days ago I realized that the AC was not as cool as usual. I figured it needed a recharge. The next day I take a trip to my sisters, which is about an hour away, with my AC on and my temp gauge goes up. I stop to check it and end up putting two and a half gallons of water in it. I figure, GREAT, I've got a leak in my radiator system somewhere. So I stock up on water and start the trek back home. I left the AC off so my motor didn't work any harder than it had to. Strangely enough, it never over heated. I checked it half way home and when I arrived home and it didn't lose a drop of water. Now, today I turn the AC on when I drove into town, a trip of about ten miles, and checked it when I got there. I put one half gallon of water in it. Apparently, I'm only losing anti-freeze while I'm running the AC. I've been looking for any leaks and/or suspicious pools of water but have revealed nothing so far. My mechanic says he can't look at it until next week and that sucks. So, any info available will be helpful, even better would be a site or some schematic of the AC/radiator system.
The ac and radiator are two seperate systems ,the electric fan is common to both of them ,be sure your fan is working and are you filling the over flow to the correct hot and cold level?
