If it's the hole I'm thinking of on the top side of the engine, on the side closest to the firewall, it sounds to me like a freeze plug popped out, the same thing happened to my '90 accord lx. Hope it's helpful. Water pumps all have a hole that will begin leaking out coolant as the rubber seal in the water pump gets older -- it is the reason that a water pump needs to be replaced around 100,000 miles -- If this is the water pump -- which is likely if car is nearing or past 100K, then you need to replace it soon... or start walking.

If you are talking about the coolant temperature switch that turns the fan on when the coolant reaches the right temperature, then mine it is located in the bottom of the radiator directly under the fan.

Can be a hole in the radiator or a problem with one or more of the hoses. A mechanic can run a pressure test to see where the problem(s) are located at.

You don't have a cap on the radiator. The cap is located directly on the coolant bottle

The coolant tank is located directly behind the drivers side headlamp where the FL fender meets with the bumper. There is a dip stick with a yellow screw cap used to check level.

The heater core is located on the passenger side under the dash. When you see fluid leaking, it's time to replace the heater core. Get ready to spend a fair amount of money.

To my knowledge, no car built on the CDW27 platform (Contours, Cougars, Mondeos, and Mystiques.) had a radiator plug, you add coolant directly to the coolant reservoir.

It should be in the intake manifold directly underneath the throttle body.

Heater Core. The heater core is located inside the heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) unit under the dash. It is out of sight so you canรƒยฏร‚ยฟร‚ยฝt see a leak directly. But if the heater core is leaking (or a hose connection to the heater core is leaking), coolant will be seeping out of the bottom of the HVAC unit and dripping on the carpet. Look for stains or wet spots on the bottom of the plastic HVAC case, or on the passenger side floor.

The Ford KA coolant sensor on the 1.6 is located on the right hand side of the engine, directly on top of the thermostat housing, just below the air filter housing.

Coolant temperature sensors are usually located on the radiator.

If you are getting coolant inside the car your Heater core is leaking but if only smelling coolent. The hose on the exterior maybe the issue and it maybe that the sound blanket in that area where the ends of the heater core pass thru the firewall is asborbing coolent hence the smell. This should give you a starting point hope it helps.

The coolant temperature sensor on an 89 Taurus with a 3.8L V-6 is located directly above the thermostat, where the upper radiator hose connects to the engine. the sensor is positioned vertically and has 2 wires coming off of it.

It it's necessary to add coolant you should add it into the overflow bottle that's located in engine compartment and has a sign on it saying coolant. This will be a whiteish colored container about 2 liters in size somewhere along the side in the engine compartment. It'll probably have a black plastic lid that just pops off. Never open your radiator cap when the engine is hot as you run the risk of burning yourself with very hot water. If you're having to add coolant often you should probably have that looked at. It could be that a radiator hose is leaking or that the radiator itself is leaking or that your heater core is leaking.

if there is condensation on the inside of your windshield you can probably smell coolant as well. this is caused by a leaking heater core located behind the glove box in the evaporator case.

User Avatar

If its inside the cab at the firewall, its probably your heater core which is located on the passenger side under the dash. This repair is usually not much fun. If its leaking in the engine compartment near the firewall, its probably a heater hose that is failing. This is an easy repair

The coolant temp sensor is located next the the thermostat housing.

Its located on the bottom of the coolant reservore.

Let me tell basically the places it could be leaking. If it inside the car then the heater core is probably bad. Check the radiator, the top, and bottom coolant hoses. The bottom hose will coming from your water pump. The hoses or the water pump could be leaking (if the pump is leaking then it will have to be replaced). There is a thermostat that could leak if not properly installed. This will be located, under a housing, at the point your top hose enters the engine. There will also be two hoses going toward the fire wall. These are the in and out hoses for the heater core. Theses could also be leaking. You could always get a UV light kit and put dye in the coolant and trace it that way also. (This in my opinion is the easiest method.) Well, I hope you find it. Good luck.

The 1995 Chevy Silverado coolant sensor is located on the front of the engine. The coolant sensor will be a few inches above the thermostat housing.

User Avatar

Your thermostat is sticking in the closed position,it is usually located where the top radiator hose connects to the engine. Very inexpensive item

User Avatar

It wants to degrade you. It sounds like the heater matrix is leaking engine coolant. the matrix is located behind the dash

User Avatar

The thermostat is located at the front of the engine, directly above the water pump. now you might have to remove the coolant shroud to and coolant fan to get down there. if you need any other help/directions email me at snoboarderperson@aol.com and i will be glad to help i have downloadable directions if you would like them
