Engine Cooling problem
2004 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 113210 miles
My problem happens spiraticaly. Some days no problems and other days my car tends to overheat. I have replaced the Thermostat and had someone run a preasure test(checked O.K.). The only time I actually lost coolant was when it ran hot and coolant spewed from the edge of the overflow/radiator cap. After that I replaced the Thermostat and it hasn't lost coolant since. It still runs hot from time to time. It appears to happen after the car has been idling. When it starts to overheat we can turn the AC off and the temp gauge drops to almost normal. I was told it could be a head gasket issue so I used bars leak liquid copper, but I am still having the same issue. Any suggestions and thanks for your help.
