I have a 95 Taurus with a 3.0 and have a real strange situation. After
running about 30-40 miles, the coolant pukes itself back out of the surge
tank. I replaced the thermostat thinking it was stuck, NOT. I have even
gone so far as to flush the radiator thinking it may have been clogged. It
needed a good flushing but, that has not stopped my problem. This happens
all the time and its driving me batty! Any ideas???
What's the temperature gauge say when this is happening?
Has the water pump ever been changed?
Are the cooling fans working?
I have never seen it, but 3.0's can break head bolts and cause a sealing
problem. Any vapors in the exhaust? milky residue in the water?
Had the same problem with my 98. Turned out that when I removed the overflow
tank it was cracked underneath. When pressure maximized it would leak out.
Went to a wrecker and replaced it in 5 minutes for $20!!
