I suggest that you put it back together, clean it, and pressure test the cooling system. Needs to hold 13 to 15 psi. THEN look for leaks.

1999 Ford Taurus keeps running hot


Does it get hot mainly when parked or stopped at a red light or does it get hot even when the car is in motion?If its only when your stopped,the cooling fans are probably not working due to a blown fuse,relay or bad fan motor.If the coolant inside the reservoir seems to boil once the engine gets hot,that can be caused by a defective radiator cap.A blown head gasket will also cause overheating.If you let the engine idle for a few minutes,shut it off,pull all of the spark plugs,see if any plug or two adjacent plugs are wet with coolant, that's a sign of a blown head gasket.If you constantly need to refill the radiator with coolant, that's another sign.

Coolant and oil leak


have a compression test done as the bubbles suggest a blown head gasket or cracks. That will account for the overheating. The oil leak may be from the head gasket or cracks.

I want to know where my coolant sensor is located


Hello,

The coolant sensor in the 2000 ford taurus is located on the bottom of the coolant reservoir.

You will see two wire connector protruding towards the fender-side.

It is built into the reservoir tank bottom so if it needs a rplacement the whole unit has to be replaced.


Thanks for using fixya.

Coolant overflowing out of expansion tank no boil no steam


As you've stated driving around town it's fine, and everything is working well. For the symptoms, there are 2 possible causes:
1. Your cooling fans are not working.
2. Your radiator needs to be replaced.
I'm sure you can determine which it is, and I wish you luck on your repair.

Coolant won't stay in reservoir.


a good mechanic would have replaced the thermostat when he did the water pump.
May not even have been the water pump in the first place.
Car may have a vapour lock under the thermostat from leting the coolant out when replacing the water pump , and not filling and bleeding the system correctly.
Thermostat won't open if no hot coolant can get to it.

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.
