No heat (sometimes a *little*
warm). Prestone smell in the car when heater
is on. Car has a tendancy to overheat (slow & intermittent rad fan).
It gobbles up about 1 gallon of coolant per week (seems to be vaporising
through the heater core, since I'm not seeing any leaks anywhere)
My guess is a leaking heater core & a defective thermostat.
seems to have been serviced over the car's life, it has nearly
175,000KM on it.
had the O2 sensor, timing belt, water pump, Air bypass valve and timing belt
idler changed over the last month.
I'm gonna trash it after the winter, but here in Canada I need some kind of
heat in the car.
Thermostat is pretty cheap, but the only place I can get the heater core
seems to be at Ford's (expensive).
