I have a 93 Taurus 3.0 liter. I can't find a antifreeze leak. I have
detected an odor of antifreeze outside of the car(when you approach the car
after it has been running) . But for the life of me I can't find it.No wet
spots on the ground or on or around the engine ever,but it looses a little
bit( about a pint every two months) Any help would be appreciated .
It's pretty common on 3.0 Tauri for the water pump to leak and drip onto the
exhaust. The drips don't hit the ground. Also look for seepage in the heater
short hoses in the right rear engine compartment area.
I suspect a pinhole high pressure leak in one of the heater hoses toward the
front of the engine compartment. That's where the leaks were in the two Tauri
that I owned. They were both on the underside of the hoses; difficult to spot,
and only leaked under pressure.
