2002 Ford Explorer leaking coolant, but passed the pressurization test?????
Ford Explorer was leaking coolant on driveway. Coolant was low, topped it off and took to garage, passed pressurization test, appears to have stopped leaking. All this in a two day time frame. May have been leaking longer, but just noticed with coolant on driveway.
hate it when that happens- you take it to the shop and the beast shyly behaves- if you saw coolant it might have come out of the reservoir because the level was too high- or someone spilled coolant in the engine bay while adding fluid- or there might really be a leak- keep your eyes on the driveway
Sounds reasonable, however, no coolant has been added in a while. Thanks.
Yes, keep an eye on it. Possibly the recovery tank has sprung a leak. Or you've got a pin hole somewhere, like the radiator, and it's temporarily plugged up by a piece of dirt or rust floating around in the cooling system. HTH. - Jim
