2005 ford taurus leaking antifreeze but doesn't overheat and it leaks out the passenger side of the car in the front


if its leaking inside the car its the radiator or heat exchanger for the climate control where the hot air comes from. will get worse and it will eventually over heat the engine.
quick cheap fix is to disconnect the two pipes in the engine bay that go to the heat exchanger at the the fire wall in the engine compartment. you will have to join them together so that everything on the engine still works. they are usually 20mm or 3/4". you can use a bit of copper pipe that size and the hose clamps.

1996 Ford Taurus is heating up really quick if driven 5 - 10 minutes over 60 mph


If water pump is old,like over 70,000 miles on it,replace it when you do the fan belt and tensioner.
A new thermostat and a radiator flushing might also be in order. don-ohio (:^)

Volvo 240 radiator leak


Epoxy or other types of "quick fixes" will not work, or if they do won't fix the problem correctly. Even stop leak just plugs the hole from the inside, and plugs up the system. Best bet is to try and find the problem, which is usually a leaking hose, water pump, or radiator.
Once you find where the leak is coming from I can advise better on the best solution.

Radiator fans do not start and of course the car overheats. This car is a 1996 ford taurus 6 cyl 3.0. I have by-passed the switches and hooked it up direct to the battery and the fan does work. Can you...


It's more than likely the temperature sensor which activates the fans is bad, cheap fix.

OR the fan relays are not functioning also a cheap fix

Where do i add radiator stop leak in a 2001 taurus


Remove radiator cap with engine cold, remove enough fluid so it can be replaced with stop leak. Add all stop leak & top off with anti freese. Put cap back on & start engine. Run engine for at least 20 minutes or take for a drive. Leak should stop if not too severe.Hope this advice helps if so rate accordingly. Good luck!

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