Heating Issue


Asked by Oct 09, 2014 at 11:47 AM about the 2000 Ford Taurus SES

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Heat gave out on my Taurus. I started it up put anti-freeze in it and it immediately blew hot
air. Later went to turn the car on and cool air again. What is going on?

1 Answer


Air pocket in the system is my the first thing I can think of, sometimes these can be a real bear to get out. The other thing is you have a blown head gasket and the engine is burning the coolant while it is running. Does the coolant level keep dropping? If it does then have a block check performed at a shop, that will tell you for sure.
