When 2001 Ford Taurus runs hot in idle do you need to add water to radiator?

Not necessarily! Let it cool down then check the radiator water level and the water overflow reservoir tank. In a properly operating system the reservoir adds water as needed to the radiator when it cools down after you quit driving. #1. The radiator should be full of water and the reservoir tank should be 3/4 full of water. #2. At a certain temperature or with the "AC on" the radiator fan(s) should be sucking air over the radiator and cooling coils. So! Fill the radiator and the reservoir and when it overheats in idle see if the fans behind the radiator are operating.

Where do you add water to the radiator?

If you are speaking of a radiator in an automobile, there is a plastic bottle on the side of the radiator, and it is marked for the fluid level; "ADD" or "FULL". The cap on the bottle will say "COOLANT ONLY" or words to that effect. Do not overfill. Older model vehicles you will add water to the radiator itself. Remove the radiator cap, slowly, and pour in the water. NEVER REMOVE THE RADIATOR CAP IF THE ENGINE HAS BEEN RUNNING! Wait until it cools down.
