Aerostar engine runs hot

\015 MY 1996 FORD AEROSTAR ENGINE RUNS HOT. THERE IS WATER AND STEAM SPEWING OUT OF A TUBE IN THE FAR LEFT CORNER UNDER THE HOOD.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 20-11-2017

Answers :

I believe your thermostat is stuck in the closed position. It's not allowing coolant to circulate and cool off in the radiator. The water coming out of the tube is from the radiator overflow tube. The super-hot coolant is expanding and has no where to go since the thermostat is stuck. Replace the thermostat and use a new gasket set. Its an easy job if your handy with tools.
