Engine Cooling problem
1994 Ford Escort 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles
I have just bought the above vehicle and I have noticed on a hot day while using the airconditioner, the cooling system has a severe pressure build-up.
When I turn the engine off, the coolant flows into the reservoir bottle with great force. I have no doubt if I removed the radiator cap at this stage it would be like a fire hose shooting coolant to the moon!
The funny thing is the temp gauge registers normal (about half scale) and the engine performance is normal.
Thanks in advance.
