THATS WHAT THE OVERFLOW/EXPANSION PACK IS FOR. WHEN ANTIFREEZE/COOLANT BEGIN TO BOIL IT EXPANDS AND IT NEEDS A PLACE TO GO. THERE FOR IT GOES IN TO THE OVERFLOW/EXPANSION PACK. THIS PREVENTS DAMAGE TO THE ENGINE/RADIATOR AND OVERHEATING. THERE IS ALSO THE POSIBILITY OF A MALFUNCTIONING SENDING UNIT/GAUGE.

How do find the coolant capacity of a 1994 1.9 liter escort?

The 1994 Ford Escort with the 1.9L Escort has a coolant capacity dependent on whether it an automatic or standard transmission. Automatic equipped vehicles have a coolant capacity of 6.3-quarts, and 5.3 for the standard. The factory recommended coolant is 50/50 mixture of ethylene glycol to water. Distilled water is advisable, and modern universal coolants (such as Prestone, and G-05) are downwardly compatible to this application.

Why is a 1995 Ford Escort overheating?

Could be many answers to this problem. Starting with worse-case and going to best case scenario... Check coolant level. If you've serviced the coolant regularly and coolant is an off-color or is contaminated, then run a compression test. If the level is low, it could be an internal engine leak or external leak. (hopefully external) If coolant checks-out, then try replacing the thermostat. Sometimes the gauges will read incorrectly and so that's another possibility.

You should the head gasket. If you go to Autozone, they have a tool that can check for exhaust gas in the coolant which may tell you if you have blown head gasket. Also, check your oil to see if it is milky or if you are blowing white smoke from the exhaust pipes. HTH

Will a 1995 ford escort wagon radiator fit in a 1994 Ford Taurus GL wagon?

Probably not. The ford escort wagon is a 4 cylinder, which has less cubic inches. Thus, it needs less coolant, and is probably smaller. The Taurus GL wagon is a 6 cylinder, and probably requires more coolant, and the coolant overflow is also larger in the Taurus. Also depending on if the GL uses Dexecool or Standard Green coolant. I wouldn't recommend trying, i would go to a junk yard, and pull one. (Hoses are also ran differently, and are different sizes, different radiator presure) I highly doubt it. They are two completely different cars.


99 Escort Wagon-Why does the fuel tank spill out overflow when I am refueling?

Maybe the fuel cutoff on the pump you are using doesn't work. Also, you are pumping gas too fast. There are no moving parts to the overflow hose. If you are getting overflow it is doing it's job. Slow down on the speed of refilling it.
