1999 Ford Mustang Repair Question
1999 Ford Mustang 99 MUSTANG OVER HEATING
my mustang begain over heating and i noticed the radiator was leaking so i replaced it drove about 6 miles and there was a loud clicking noise then it began to overheat again and died... radiator is no longer the problem..... when i took the oil cap off smoke came out of there??? help!!!
Check the thermostat could be stuck closed if not it, do below
Have it block and pressure tested-do the block first to pinpoint a combustion leaking into the cooling system or a gas analyzer to sniff for hydrocarbons at the radiator fill neck.
Pressure test: do not do a pressure test if there's leakage at the headgasket this might cause coolant into the cylinders and lock it up or bend a connecting rod if cranked thereafter. The headgasket should be repaired before doing the pressure test.
If the block and pressure test passes check the following: ,Pressure test the Rad. cap,Clogged radiator,air lock in the cooling system ,Fan clutch,Radiator electrical fan,collaspe hoses,water pump.
