Engine Cooling problem
2001 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 148280 miles
I own a 2001 Ford Taurus, a few weeks ago I had the engine coolant hose replaced that had a blow leak in it. It cost me 140 dollars to replace at the dealers. Now the engiine seems like it might have another problem in the cooling system, because when I was out running arrons with my taurus, the engine heat seemed hotter than normal? And I noticed fluid under my car, the color is either transparent or reddish? I think its engine coolant again but no ''check engine '' light or ''low coolant'' or anything signifying a over heated engine temp. I think it might be a faulty ECT sensor, I am also thinking about checking the water pump sense it hasnt been replaced yet that I know of. My question about that is - Where is the water pulley and water pump located? And the ECT sensor? I heard that the ECT sensor is somewhere on the intake manifold. Im just worried about my car and the seriousness of the damage it might have underneath, ya know. Thx!
have the same problem?
