Ford problems

Asked by May 11, 2013 at 11:41 AM about the 2001 Ford Taurus SES

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car started with a light knock, then got worse as I was getting closer to home. It
shut off at 30 mph and sounded like a diesel engine..., I started it and it doesn't stay
running but the next day (05-11-2013) it stays running. There was not any water in the
reservoir so I put some in then started it and it shot out of the weep hole. Then my dad
took the cap off and it shot the cap in the air. My dad says head gasket. Anymore
details you need just ask.

The resevior is pressurized. Do you see where the coolant is going, such as a leak?

It has 139,349..., and my dad said if you look close to the reservoir it looks like it's expanding, and he said it shouldn't be building up that much pressure that fast.

and it's leaking from under the car.., haven't actually located the direct leak
