Look under the left end of the radiator, at the bottom. Under the "bumper", a small white plastic thumbscrew...it's a valve of sorts to drain the radiator.

1999 ford contour hesitates when accelerating?


I would check all of the vacuum lines to check for any damaged or cracked ones. If none, when was the last time you did a full tune up on this car? Plugs, wires, air filter(s), oil change, radiator flush, transmission fluid flush! Without first knowing how many miles are on this car, and the last time any of this was changed, it would be a hard diagnosis.

No heat in 99 taurus.....bypass line is hot, but lines to heater core are just warm. if i pinch bypass hose i get heat...is this a bad thing to do?


I had the exact problem with mine and had to replace the heater core and that was the problem. same exact symptoms. also make sure that you have a good system flush done or do yourself but make sure the whole system is flushed well and through bottom drain. these cars have a issue with clogged radiators which will lead to many more issues if not checked. good luck!

Can you run a radiator cleaner on a 1999 ford expedition ?


Personally, I do not recommend ever using a radiator cleaner.

The ads sound great, but on every vehicle I have ever owned that I used one on (Olds, Buick, Ford) I developed leaks not long afterwards.

All my other cars, which I would drain and refill, but never do a flush and clean, never developed any radiator leaks. Most of them saw over 200K miles!

I need to r and r a radiator in a 1998 ford taurs ses and someone told me it has to come out the bottom of the car so i wanted to see in a manual what the steps are befor i started.


If I remember correctly , along the top of the radiator is a support with 4 bolts , 2 on each side that you can remove and then remove support to access the radiator through the top not the bottom. It will be a time consuming job , be prepared , and good luck.
