Asked by Aug 17, 2015 at 05:58 PM about the 2000 Ford Taurus SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi there, My 2000 Ford Taurus's engine gets very hot very quickly while driving. I the radiator flushed a few days ago and replaced the coolant. However, when i check my coolant level again today and the tank was basically empty. Also when i run the heat, my car only blows cold air. It makes me think it could be the thermostat, but I'm not sure why I suddenly didn't have coolant after only 2 days. I was told but the people thats flushed my car that there is a lot of rust through out the cooling system and they had said they cleaned it. What should i do?
