Engine Cooling problem
1994 Ford Taurus 6 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 74,000 miles
HELLO, today I got in car, only warm up about 5 mins, drove 10, cut off, then I drove 5 mins, when I noticed thick black smoke coming from under the hood. I noticed prior to this my thermostat went from cool to extremely hot. When I pulled over antifreeze had sprayed over everything under the hood and antifreeze bin was empty. In 20 degree cold I cleaned as best I could and refilled the antifreeze. Once my car cooled I drove again for about 5 minutes getting the same smoking results except the antifreeze did not come out, but the thermostat warned me of the about o come smoke by going straight from cool to hot instead of going to the middle of the gauge and cooling back down. Thank you please help
have the same problem?
