Engine Cooling problem
1992 Ford Aerostar 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 166000 miles
I need help tracking down a problem where I'm losing water that's coming out of the top of the water overflow reservoir. When parked, I can see a trickle coming from where the hose goes down into the reservoir through the reservoir cap. However, the trickle becomes much greater when I drive. I'm losing about a half gallon within 10 minutes or so. This problem was much worse (pool of water under he engine and engine compartment wet all over), then I changed out the thermostat and radiator cap. Now, I don't get the pool of water, but I'm still losing a significant amount through the top of the water overflow reservoir cap. I don't see any pinched hoses either. Do you have any ideas on what could be the cause of water loss; obstruction, maybe?
have the same problem?
