Re: Ford Tarus overheating
Scary, improper engine temperature can ruin an engine. I'd get the heater
problem fixed. I also fail to see how removing the thermostat fixes a
problem with the heater. If for instance your heater coil leaked and you
didn't want to replace it (why?) then you can run a bypass, you don't just
plug the hoses. Anyway, I tend to agree with the headgasket. You can have a
faulty head gasket without any lose in power etc. You blew it off without
even a so much as a by your leave. How did you check the engine to be sure
that a head gasket wasn't the problem? You've replaced the water pump, the
radiator and the hoses. This leave the problem to the engine, most common
cause of the engine causing overheating.
Not enclusive, but the most likely suspect...
