CAUTION: Do not mix Standard (green) Coolant with Extended Life Coolant (orange). If mixing occurs, drain engine cooling system and refill with originally equipped coolant type. If this contamination occurs, the service change interval on Extended Life Coolant will be reduced from 6 years/150,000 miles to 3 years/30,000 miles.

  2. Remove power steering oil reservoir retaining screws and position power steering oil reservoir out of the way.
  3. Remove degas bottle return hose and clamp. Remove degas bottle retainers and remove degas bottle.
Installation
  1. Position degas bottle in vehicle and install retaining screw and nut. Tighten retaining bolt and nut to 9-12 Nm (80-106 inch lbs.)
  2. Connect degas bottle hose and clamp to degas bottle.
  3. Position power steering oil reservoir onto degas bottle and install retaining screws securely.

1999 ford taurus is leaking coolant told heater hose manifold needs replacing for about $500.00


It's very possible it could be leaking and need replacing.
$500 is too much to pay for this repair.
I would get a second opinion and another cost estimate.

My 2001 Ford Taurus keeps running too hot to safely drive. Whenever the car is started fluid immediately gushes out of the plastic resevior that you put the water/antifreeze leading to the radiator. I...


You have an air bubble at the top of the engine.
The antifreeze spewing out of the overflow happens due to your perfectly functional radiator cap
passing the overheated coolant/air mixture out of the system into the reservior (in an attempt
to relieve overpressurization of the cooling system)
The sudden nature of your overheating comes from the boiling of the inadequate amount of
coolant/antifreeze in your engine, since it cant properly cool the engine, so it boils (overheats quickly), and pressure rises immediately within the cooling system.
The Fix is free: locate and open the (air) bleeder port at the top of the engine, and add the usual
50% coolant/50% water mixture to the radiator until the radiator is full to the level indicated in
your owner's manual (or the "Full" line). Then close the bleeder port and replace the rad (radiator)
cap.
The air bleeder port is normally located near the thermostat, and should be opened each time
that coolant is added to the radiator. The air bleeder port need not be opened when adding
50/50 coolant to the reservior, since the rad cap is going to be closed while adding coolant
to this part of the cooling system.
Warning: driving beyond the point where your engine temperature gauge indicates overheating will
destroy the car's engine - it'll seize up due to overheating, and the only fix for a seized/burned-up
engine is replacement (of the engine). Seizing an engine is really easy with an air bubble in the
top of the engine - you could easily burn up/warp the head, necessitating replacement of the head
and head gask
et.

Had a coolant blowout on 1999 Ford taurus station wagon 3.0v aluminum head damage - what year engine range can i replace it with from another taurus with minimal effort?

Can't find location of low radiator fluid warning sensor on 1999 Ford Taurus V-6 DOHC engine


Hello:

Usually on Ford automobiles, the low coolant sensor is built into the coolant overflow tank cap. If yours is this way, you can spot the wiring and electrical connector attached to the cap. The sensor looks like a dipstick in the coolant tank.

Hope this helps!

1999 Ford Taurus Coolant Light


Jackie, Hi, yes this would be the problem if the temperature sensor is not working it will not tell the fan too start, so best advice would be too change this sensor, or have someone do it for you and that should cure your problem, Colin.

I have a 1999 ford taurus with the 3.0 sohc we have replaced the thermostat and the pressure cap and it still keeps blowing out coolant what else could be wrong?


I assume its overheating.
Ensure motor doesn't have tuning or mechanical problems (such as blown head gasket).
Check radiator core is not blocked,
Check operation of cooling fans.
Check the coolant system is correctly filled - any airlocks cleared (by bleeding as may be required).
Check radiator hose on suction side of waterpump not (soft) collapsing when engine speed above idle,

Cooling System Problems 1999 Ford Taurus


My friend had a 1999 taurus and had the same problem, his coolant would leak from around the overflow bottle because the system was backing up. His problem was a partially plugged radiator. I know this probably isnt the news you wanted to hear, but I'm pretty sure thats going to be your problem. sounds like you've replaced everthing else short of the radiator and water pump. Good thing is i remember him saying it was reasonalbly priced, so good luck.

Ford Taurus 1996, coolant comes out throughout the cap every time when car stops


You will overheat the engine if losing coolant.Firstly replace the cap with a new one,Is the engine temperature normal when you stop ? If its over temperature it will still blow out coolant. Check the radiator for blockage of the tubes & ensure the fan belts and water pump are in good order. Worst case is a blown head gasket can test for combustion gases in the coolant
