Engine Cooling problem
1998 Mercury Sable 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 143000 miles
Where is the thermostat? This is the strangest cooling system I've ever encountered.
Does the coolant reservoir cap also serve as the "radiator" cap?
I think we have a leak in the reservoir cap, which makes it run low in antifreeze, which, in turn, makes it run hot.
While running, the temp gauge goes up to hot for 2 - 3 seconds then back down to normal repeatedly. There is no warm air going to interior heating system.
Sometimes, not always, filling up the reservoir makes the interior heat work.
have the same problem?
