1998 Lincoln Town Car V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 42000 miles
water on front passenger side carpet. This usually means heater core leak but water was clean, not yellow coolant? Ford dealer says system is holding presure but I asked if they had turned on the heater as I had turned it off and service writer said he did not think it had to be on! If I remember from high school mechanics class 30 years ago it does have to be on in order to allow the coolant to circulate into the heater core to check for leaks/pressure? Please confirm.
Consumer Reports says that this 98 Town Car sometimes need a restrictor installed inside the heater inlet hose?
Problem occurred quickly, not slowly and again liquid seemed like clean water, not coolant?
Appreciate any suggestions, Thanks!
have the same problem?
