2000 Ford Mustang Q&A
2000 Ford Mustang Question: Turned heat on, blew cold air, looked at temp and it was red line.
Engine started making noises like a large ball bearing in a tin can, I stopped. Steam pouring out the passenger side of the car (outside), opened hood, radiator was 1/2 cup low, reserve 1/2 full. Little bubbles were fizzing where the intake manifold meets the engine block. Once it had cooled, it did not make any noise and ran fine. A mile up the road, the temp was almost to red line again. No water spray on the engine, oil is clear. The radiator has never been flushed that I know of....where do I start? Has never done this or anything else before. - mosbados
