Hey Willie==If it comes out the cap and not the overflow jug, the cap is faulty plus what is causing it to get hot. 'Check the fans for proper operation. If it isn't smoking white smoke, it probably isn't the head gaskets. A stuck thermostat will also cause it ot overheat. If all else fails, take it to a radiator shop and have the radiator flow tested. GoodluckJoe
There may be a hole in the radiator?
If it is coming from the radiator or the hoses this would mean your antifreeze is boiling in the lines. I would recommend first changing the thermostat and bleeding the air from the rad lines.
you have to drain the antifreeze/coolant so it would be wise.
Most Likely you have a leak from the transmission cooling tank on your radiator to the antifreeze portion of the radiator. Jeff
Are you sure that isn't antifreeze and if so that would indicate the radiator is defective. There is a transmission oil cooler in the radiator.
if drain plug is stopped up, u need to lose antifreeze and flush radiator and then replace with new antifreeze as obviously the radiator and coolant are dirty or drain plug would not stop up
antifreeze keeps your car from overheating, it flows thru your radiator hose, without it your motor would blow
Bring your vehicle to a garage is what I would do so you can let it thaw and refill it with antifreeze because there must be water in the radiator
Radiator or hose but probably water pump
The smell of antifreeze is very strong and distinct, it does not take much of a leak to smell it. The radiator could still be full and have a small leak. I would check for antifreeze dripping onto the exhaust or on the engine block because when it is hot the smell is much more noticeable from the fumes.
You would have a leak, from either the pipes to the heater matrix (radiator), or the matrix itself.
While cold fill through radiator cap until full, then fill reservoir at front of car to the " cold " or full level.
Either the radiator hose is loose where it connects to the radiator or there is either a small hole in the radiator or in the radiator hose. Try checking the hose to see if it's loose or check for small holes in the hose or radiator.
A couple of reasons, faulty waterpump, leaky radiator, bad hose, bad radiator cap, thermostat housing.
The antifreeze is building up to much pressure you may have a cloged line or tour hose clamp is lose
at the bottom of the radiator
I'm guessing that it has a closed radiator, so one would use the overflow basin to add liquids. Otherwise one would use the radiator cap..
The radiator itself probably holds a half gallon. The car as a whole would hold about 2 gallons.
There are several reason why a car might lose antifreeze. The water pump might be bad, one of the radiator hoses could be leaking, the radiator could have a leak, a freeze plug could be leaking, or it could have a blown head gasket.
If it's just blowing out when you start it you probably have a cracked head or blown head gasket. If there is oil in the radiator there is a change you have oil coming in from the transmission cooler. But there would have to be a lot of oil to make antifreeze come out the radiator cam. Since you did not mention oil I would suspect the head gasket. If you got it hot I would lean toward a cracked head.
A 1992 Mercury Grand Marquis would have come from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of distilled water and GREEN color antifreeze ( meeting Ford specification ESE-M97B44-A )
Putting 100% "straight" antifreeze in your car's radiator will expose the cooling system to freezing at a much higher temperature than would the appropriate and recommended mix of roughly 50/50 antifreeze and water. Antifreeze works best WITH water.
Good heavens, no!!! You MIGHT use it as a flush, but I would use a commercial product for that.
Failed water pump, hose, radiator, gasket, freeze plug,............
If you drive with no antifreeze in your radiator you could ruin the motor. At a minimum you would probably blow a head gasket. The worse thing that can happen is that the motor will freeze up.
