Coolant reservoir issue.

Asked by Apr 12, 2017 at 04:29 PM about the 2000 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Last November I took my car for a
coolant flush before we had the
freezing winter  temperature  here in
CT and ever since then my heat
would only work sometimes. About a
month ago the temp garage started
running on high.  Now my coolant
reservoir barely keeps fluid in it and
today I put some stop leak for
radiator and some coolant and
allowed the car to run for 10 minutes.  
Next thing I know the car started to
smoke a little on the back end by the
serpentine belt, and it looked like the
car was spitting coolant. It was
gushing just like a mist type of
spitting. I am not sure where to start,
I want to buy the parts and get the
car fixed, can someone respond and
help me out. It is the only car I have
for now. TIA

To fix the leak you first must find it. If you think it is coming from the reservoir it will need replacing.

F_O_R I think it is coming from the Reservoir and some of the hoses. But I am not sure which hoses I need to replace.
