Question about 1992 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

More info? would that hose thing be an easy thing to fix? it stopped leaking and it didn't seem to be coming from the radiator because i checked the fluid. and i was able to move it from the gas station that it happened at and didn't notice any leaking. so i'm hoping it just the hose instead of the radiator.

The hose itself is easy to change - it just has a clamp at each end that holds it in place and keeps it sealed. You'd have to drain some of the fluid (most probably, since it's the lower hose), and then refill the radiator, burp it, and top it off. Not terribly hard to do at all.

You could have a leak coming from the intake or even the heads. Before digging into those difficult items, I'd check all of your freeze plugs for damage/wear/rust/leaks.

I have had a similar problem with my son's Accord. You are lucky that your son knew to stop immediately, this happened to my son and we ended up having the head rebuilt.

A leak may exist but not show up until there is adequate pressure or, you may have a blockage that caused excessive pressure.

We once had the radiator leak which was nearly undetectable in his Accord, check for moisture in the trough where the radiator sits by looking down the inboard side of the radiator with the hood up. You may need a flashlight. Radiators are available at auto parts stores for about $100 and easy to replace. Replace the thermostat, cap and as many hoses as you can at the same time.

Another problem we had was the radiator cap had come apart and leaked periodically.

If the thermostat stuck, this could have caused a temperature and pressure surge explaining the now-you-see-it-now-you-don't leak. A faulty fan, or fan switch could also cause a periodic temperature surge.

The leak could be coming from the thermostat housing which is on the passenger side of a 4 cyl engine, or from the upper or lower radiator hoses or the two heater hoses. The water pump is on the drivers side and connects to the thermostat housing through a metal pipe with O-ring seals.

LOOSING COOLANT FROM DEAWOO LANOS ANY IDEAS


Check your radiator after your car has been running for a while, if it is wet anywhere then its leaking from the radiator, this will be around 100-200 dollar fix for a new one, or 50-100 used. If this is not the problem check the hoses going and coming from the radiator, check both ends and see if the seal is tight. Another thing is check the hoses themselves, are the inflated? For example are they really easy to squeeze? if so it could be leaking from there and you will have to get a new hose. If none of these work check your coolant to see if its a milky color. Check your oil too. Could be head gaskets which will cost a fortune to get fixed unless you know how to do them yourself which then will cost around 100 dollars depending on where you get them. Hope this helps let me know what you find if none of these are true ill work with you until we get it fixed.

Small coolant leak at front of engine hose area, not always maybe 1 out of 5 times driving to work.


If you can narrow down where the leak is coming from, it will be easier for you to fix, but it is most likely either a minor radiator leak, or your water pump. You can put a can of radiator stop leak in your vehicle, such as bars leak. It wont hurt anything. If the leak continues, and appears to be coming from the engine area, the water pump is failing, but also check around the thermostat housing, near where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine

Well could be a couple of things. It could be the thermostat "sticking". Or it could be like a couple of vehicles that I've had where a small radiator leak has caused it to overheat. I would try flushing the radiator and see how that does. What I would recommend though is Prestone Super Flush be used to flush all the **** out. And when you refill the radiator use a tube of radiator stop leak (the powder type). You can use the pellets, but the powder seems to work a little better. What I've always done is to put the Prestone flush in the radiator and let it circulate through the system with the heat on the highest setting. After maybe 10 minutes remove the lower radiator hose making sure that you have on long sleeves and are using long rubber gloves so as not to scald yourself, because it will be scalding hot. Once all of it is drained out, I just used a hose and let the water run through there and circulate and come out at the disconnected radiator hose, maybe another 2 minutes. After that, put the radiator hose back on. Add the powder stop leak product and add radiator fluid until full. If this does not stop the overheating then you may need to replace the thermastat but I would start here first. It has worked with me on (3) different vehicles.

Radiator leak


The hose that attaches the upper pipe on the driver side could be crack over the clamp could be loose. Loosen the clamp completely and remove the hose from the radiator. Check the hose for cracks and if there are any replace the whole hose. If not, replace the clamp. Remove the old clamp and get a new one that is the exact size or very similar. place the clamp on the hose, install hose back to radiator and tighten. If this does not solve your problem have the vehicle checked out by the certified automotive technicain.
