What is the cause of a coolant leak on top of a 1997 Taurus 3.0 engine?
If you have coolant on the top of the engine it could be a leaky thermostat housing or a leaking intake gasket.
i had the same problem, had tried everything and finally found out that the intake gaskets were prone to leak water around the number 5 cylinder. It would cause the gasket to leak around the intake port and make the engine run ruff. Also do you have a coolant leak and have to keep adding coolant this is were it will be at. hope this helps.
Why does water bubble back in to expansion tank when engine is stopped in a petrol 1997 2.5 jeep Cherokee is this thermostat or w pump problem or other?
