Got a 1997 Taurus GL, 4.0L Vulcan OHV, flex fuel with 107,700 miles. Has been sitting in the driveway for a number of years, getting it ready for my son now. Put in a new battery and it fired right up. Drained and flushed the radiator with Prestone Radiator Cleaner. When running with fresh water after the flush, after it came up to operating temp, looks like water if being expelled from the right side of the front cylinder head, just behind the ignition coil pack mount. I have to disconnect the mount to get a better look at this. Is this some type of freeze plug on the cylinder head? If so, how do I remove and reinstall a new one? I do have a Haynes repair manual - no help on this.
Thanks in advance!
have the same problem?
