Coolant system


Asked by Apr 23, 2016 at 09:53 PM about the 1997 Ford Taurus LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Should the coolant be hot in the reservoir?

1 Answer


Yes it will get hot, especially when the radiator cap starts to relieve pressure, what is not so good is when you start to see bubbles in the recovery tank when it is running, as this is a Taurus it is something to look out for.
