Engine Cooling problem
1995 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
Couple of days ago, it got very cold, and the engine started smoking heavily. It was night-time. There was a little anti-freeze under the hood, but there wasn't any major leakage. Following day, I noticed that the car started fine, and upon driving about three miles, temp gauge went to max hot, and the car started smoking again.
I suspect thermostat problems, but I would like an expert's observation based on my scenario. I would also like to hear how to replace thermostat. I believe I can do it myself, and I am hoping that is my issue. I wish I can donate, but I have been looking for a job for 6 mos now since my former company folded. Thanks in advance.
have the same problem?
