I have a 99 ford taurus with 130K miles on it. It recently overheated and I took it to a repair shop where they told me the overflow tank had a crack. Upon replacing the overflow tank I also had the lower and upper hoses replaced along with the thermostat, the water pump and the system flushed. A day later, I noticed a whistle noise coming from the car but not necessarily while I had the AC on. A few days later the " service engine" light lit up but the car was still running and the AC worked with out overheating. Just yesterday the car overheated again and when I blasted the heater, cool air came out instead of hot air. When I turned the car off a gurgling noise was heard and a " paaa chiii" noise. What is causing my vehicle to overheat? Any suggestions PLEASE HELP! I already spent a huge chunk of change on repairs and I would like to know what is causing this to happen.
