    I’ve been having this issue with my 2006 V6 manuel Mustang’s for 4 years now. I’ve been to 4 different mechanics in 3 different states and no one can solve my issue. I’m just trying to find someone that has possibly had the same issue with their Mustang. Basically, my mustang keeps spitting...

    Hello everyone. New to this forum. Proud owner of a 2006 V6 Automatic Stang. I'll start off by letting you guys know I'm not very car savvy. I'm having some issues and I have no idea what's wrong. Issue #1: My car has been leaking coolant from time to time. As far as I know, it only leaks when...

    So I just finished swapping a 2015-16 coyote motor into my 2000 GT and upon first startup with coolant I had the heat on in order to bleed the coolant system to get fluid through the lines in the heater core. There is a small leak coming from the back of the motor and I cannot seem to find it. I...

    UPDATE, 03/15/2016: I have successfully replaced the condenser, by myself i might add!! :-) I drained the lines, replaced the condenser, re-vacuumed and re-pressurized it. Good as new! What what!! Thank you to everyone for your help...

    Having a problem where the coolant seems to boil out of the cap. It doesn't happen all the time but it's happened at least three times recently where a large amount of coolant leaks out from what looks like the back side of the cap. Also, the cap makes hissing noises for hours after the car has...

    Coolant Leak Hi Everyone, I have been constantly refilling my coolant reservoir on my 1999 ford mustang v6. Me nor Firestone were able to find any leaks anywhere. We did change the top and bottom radiator hose and even the radiator cap. However, I am still losing coolant. There is not any...

    OK so I noticed that my car is loosing coolant. I need to top up probably 1 to 2 liters a day. It started when I replaced my thermostat housing assembly, together with the thermostat and temp sensor. But i have checked the area and could not find traces of leaks. I also bypassed the throttle...

    Hey guys, where is the Coolant Vent Plug located on my 94 Cobra 5.0L? I just flushed the radiator, and don't see the vent plug to get all the air out. Thanks, RJ

    Ok here we go. I had no operational temp gauge on my 94 GT. I replaced the temp sending unit which fixed that issue, now I have a new one. It's overheating, BAD. The fan isn't even kicking on. I have a new ECT sensor which I think may help, but I don't know for sure. I also have a new...

    I have been having some interesting problems with coolant leaking from the degas bottle after i shut the engine off. Here is a brief of what has been going on for the past couple of weeks. Beginning two weeks I noticed steam coming out from under the hood when I arrived home from work. Upon...

    Hello, I have a 1995 V6. The coolant in my car slowly disappears. It is not leaking on the pavement, its not in the oil, and it does not look like its coming out of the exhaust but I suspect it is. I did a pressure test (used a vacuum and gauge on the radiator) and the cooling system held...

    Need some advice, my wife's Mustang is leaking coolant and I originally thought it was the water pump so I replaces it. That solved some of the problem but I still have a leak. I took it to a mechanic that tells me his best guess right now is the head gaskets. From what I've read so far if that...

    I have a 1997 Cobra body, With a 1994 GT 5.0 engine. Before I put the car away for winter, I noticed that there was a lot of fluid in the drive way, turns out that its antifreeze, and it appears to be leaking from the bottom right side of the radiator (if your looking at the car from the front)...

    I feel confident that this will blow your mind. I posted my coolant flow dilemma in the intro section yesterday but no responses. I found out what was wrong with it today. Previous owner of my 2001 GT had swapped the motor. Heater hasn't work since he swapped it. I've had the car for a year...

    Top radiator hose blew this morning. Replaced it, filled the coolant resivoir up, and drove about 1 mile to work. Engine immediately heated up and developed a bad "clicking" sound (reminded me of a diesel engine at first) whenever I stepped on the gas. Other than replacing the alternator...
