Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
It may dissipate only because it is cooking off faster after warmup.
You have a hose or radiator leak; check your coolant level often until you have it serviced.
I wouldn't use the stuff but there are several 'stopleak' products in auto parts stores.
Don't let it hang too long; if you run low on coolant, you are risking overheating and possibly a blown head gasket which you may already have anyhow.
The coolant leak can come from hoses, the radiator and the head gasket failed near a cooling channel.
Also check your oil and if it looks like Jergens (hand lotion), you already have a blown gasket; that comes from oil and water mixed together and makes a poor lubricant.
