Question about 1997 Mercury Sable
Posted by Anonymous on
sometimes the radiator is just too plugged to respond to flushing. (happens a lot with a marginal radiator because when flushing, the solvent simply goes around the plugged area, and cannot build up enough force to break it free). From what you have written, this may be the case. Is the electric fan coming on and off at the right times? if not this also can give you similar problems. You have done the right things but may not have gotten the desired result. Hope this info helps you a bit.

hi jasso, I would recommend checking the water pump if you see no flow in the radiator. Make sure when you fill up the cooling system, that you fill it cold, and that the vent screw in the radiator is loose. fill system until fluid comes out the vent screw. tighten the screw, start the car and have someone run at 1500rpm and check for flow.also, make sure that you have your temp setting full hot and blower on middle speed so that you don't trap air in the heater core.

If the hoses to and from the heater core are hot , and you say the heater core is hot , then the only answer is that the air duct that flows into or out of the heater core plenum ( housing ) is not opening.
Heater control on dash borad inoperative.
Not sure about 92 capri , some cars have a cable linkage , some work on vacume motors.
Try to find a haynes manual for your car , they will walk you through almost every step of anything you may ever want to do to your car.
You seem to know what you are doing , but I gotta ask ........the heater core you felt was up behind the dash inside the passenger compartment of the car right ?

after you run the car for a while do you see that the oil on your dip stick looks milky? if so the leak is getting into the oil. If so this may be a blown head gasket.

it is in the gas tank you have to drop the tank and it goes down in the top although i would locate the filter on the frame rail first and replace it its cheaper and i reccomend you replace it anyway with a pump change
