Asked by Mar 16, 2017 at 10:23 PM about the 2000 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I changed the heater core and put everything back together started it and it ran good for about ten minutes then the temperature gauge went way up and water sprayed in the engine compartment.

Sounds like a loose hose somewhere. Once you get it back together be sure and purge the air out. Youtube has several good videos on purging air.

Yes sir, you have to purge the air out from the system.

Is this the engine with the coolant plumbed through a pipe i the intake?
