Hows the radiator cap?Your going have to pressure test the cooling system and see where its leaking.

If you have a weak radiator cap you could leak coolant after you shut it off if its not holding the correct pressure. Also you can rent a coolant pressure tester at auto zone you hook it where your radiator cap goes and pump up the system to find coolant leaks.

Where's the radiator cap located at on a 2000 ford tarus

I would say have it pressure tested to make sure what it is. It could be the hose from the over flow tank to the radiator or a water pump or even a head gasket as these are known for that. A pressure test will show the leak. If it seems to be a head gasket then have a chemical test done to prove that. Hope this helps.

The gasket is the gasket between the the head and the engine block that keeps coolant and compression where it needs to be. If its leak by the radiator again you need to rent a pressure tester kit at auto zone like I suggested before.
