I have a 1996 ford crown victoria and every time i fill it up with coolant it drains right back out again but it doesn't drain on the ground what is the problem?

check the sump oil level or the exhaust pipe when you start it
could be a hole behind the water pump allowing coolant into the sump or a bad EGR valve allowing coolant into the exhaust system
have a compression test done to check for head gasket or cracked head

Can u unclog the cat coverter without replacing

No it is made of special material and if blocked will not operate as it should. The holes are about 1/16 " in size. The normal problem is from the use of incorrect sump oil or the insides of the cat converter crack and block the exhaust time outlet. Replace it with a new one as it affects the O2S sensor operation.

What to do when there no psi on cyl 4 to get the psi up agan"?"

There are at least three possible reasons for no psi in cyl No 4.
1. Burnt or damaged exhaust valve in that cylinder
FIX Remove head and replace faulty valve
2. Blown head gasket (water mixed with sump oil shows milky on dipstick and steam or water coming out of exhaust tailpipe, radiator water disappears )
FIX Remove head, grind flat and assemble with new gasket.
3. Broken piston rings, or cracked piston or burnt hole in piston.
FIX replace faulty parts.
Squirt some sump oil ( 2 or 3 spoonfuls ) through spark plug hole,
spin motor , and if compression PSI improves then it is rings or piston, if no PSI then it is faulty ex valve !!!

I have an 2005 suzuki forenza and its overheating but theres no leaks and when i check the coolant its always empty after it overheats

check for grey/ white engine oil in the sump. Have a compression test done to determine if it is a head gasket or cracked head problem . Have a coolant system pressure test done to find the leak especially at the hole under the water pump shaft.

You have water getting into the sump. Have a compression test done to check the head gasket and cracked head.. The water may be coming in from pin holes (Corrosion ) behind the water pump impellor in the aluminium housing

Crack in the sump near the drain plug

The crack can be welded once the pan is removed from the engine. Never attempt to weld with the pan still on the engine.

Hi there I had the SAME problem in my 318i. I cracked mine driving over a parking barrier in the road (long story!) Anyway. Take your car to a garage and they will drain all your oil out of the engine and sump area. They can then inject a resin into the hairline crack and once it's all set, they'll put the oil back into your car and you won't have any leak from that area again! try that first before getting a new sump. As the area needs to be bone dry from oil, they draining of oil out of your car and the waiting for the resin to set make it pretty much an all day job. Good luck with it all if you've not repaired it yet.
