First thing to check is if your cooling fan(s) at radiator is working. Sounds like may not be, and as for the fluid leak, if it's coolant, it may be from overheating while sitting idling. Get that fan checked first and once that's cured, the leak, (if coolant) may disappear as well.

Ford taurus 2001 car start but once the car is cut off it won't start up again until it cools off the car is not running hot.


After you kill it, when you try to start it back up, does the starter turn the motor? Or is it froze up (will not turn over)?

Temp gauge is rising at 3/4 of the way even while traveling down the interstate, once a/c was turned off it started to go back down but would still go up if sitting still running, what would cause this?


change the antifreeze and flush your system, its been hot lately so the motor heat goes up too, having the AC on makes the motor work harder, so thats normal that the temp would rise when its on. traveling on the road allows air to help cool the motor, sitting in traffic slows the air, so there again heat will increase
