Question about 1994 Ford Explorer Limited
I currently have two issues with my car, but don't know if one is causing the other. For a while the coolent has been burning. Any time I put some fresh coolant in, the car will burn it up and it will be dry within a few days.
Now, the car won't start. I've ruled out any issues with battery. But don't know what is the cause of it. Any ideas?
Well you have either a leak or a bad headgasket, you are going to need a cooling system pressure tester you should be able to buy one at Sears, fill the cooling system and leave the engine off!
Pump up the tester to about 20-25PSI and look for leakage, if you find a lead fix it and retest explorers are known for a intake manifold gasket leaks on the passenger side in the front where the intake meets the cylinder head.
Do you have any white smoke when you drive? Ok on to the staarting issue will the engine turn over? NO pull all the spark plugs and then try to turn it over make sure the plug wires are safely out of the way when you try to turn it over, if coolant sprays out of one of the plug hses you have a head problem either cracked or a bad gasket.
if this information has been helpful please give me a good rating,
Thank you Randy
