SOURCE: 2005 ford taurus engine light on

Try disconnecting the battery for 10 mins.This may reset the lights timer. If it comes back on within the next few days the take it to a large auto parts store and most will bring their computer out and hook it to your car and read the code the light will leave in your car computer,then they tell what the code says and try to sell you the part.You might car the auto parts store first and tell them what you have and ask if then can read your code for you.Its usually a free service.

Slight coolant leak under car, passenger side. No leaks in engine compartment.

If it's water that's normal what you are seeing is condensate draining from the evaporator coil. Remember the cooler the air the less water it can hold so it needs to be drained

How do i fix an air lock in cooling system in 2002 ford taurus ses?

There should be air bleeders near the thermostat,and another one else where on the engine at a high point,Break one bleeder loose,(thermostat location) first,with engine off,and pour coolant into the reservoir ,and when the bleeder runs pure water no air bubbles out,then shut the bleeder off.then do the same with the other bleeder.Sometimes allowing the engine to run,until normal engine temp,or a little warmer,and turning the engine off,will allow the cooling system to bleed itself,by waiting about 30 minutes and checking the coolant level in the reservoir to make sure the level is dropping,then u will know the system is bleeding itself,just make sure there is enough coolant in the reservoir before doing this.This may have to be done two,or three times.

Discovery 2003 td 5 BMW engine there is a loss of coolant but no leak in the system.what is a good way to find out what the state of the head gasket is?

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Please do check the coolant reservoir if it sits on the right level. Overfilling the coolant reservoir can cause a coolant overflow when the engine operates on higher temperature. Please do fill it and make sure that it sits on the right level.

Hope you find this helpful and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Heating system blowing cold air

1- Check the coolant level. Is the reservoir showing full cold or hot level?
2- is the car at full operating temperature?

If the car is at full temp and the coolant is full you likely have a stuck/broken thermostat.

Let us know the above please.

After flushing radiator for 1986 Ford Taurus, where do the coolant go? In the radiator or in the reservoir? And Do you have to idle with heat at full blast before adding the coolant?

Put the coolant directly into the radiator until it's full. Start the engine and run it, watching the fluid level. Keep the coolant within one inch of the neck. Fill the reservoir about half way when the radiator is full.

Where do you fill radiator on 02 taurus ses? my husband is changing the thermostat, drained the radiator and says there is no radiator cap, just a reserve tank and cap - does he fill it through the...

YES. But dont overfill it. Slowly add coolant to the low full line and let it run a while, like 10 minutes. if the level goes down fill it to the full line. After it cools for 30 minutes recheck the level and add as needed.
