Hello! I'm new to this forum. I signed up because my sister bought a mustang that is overheating. I'm trying to find some clues add to what is going wrong with it.
Here is the storey, the other day when getting off the freeway she noted the car had significantly less power and shortly there after the check engine
light began to blink in her face.
She pulled over and started to notice white smoke after turning off the engine.
She got it towed home and I took a look at it after work. I found coolant on every possible place of the engine, and the rubber portion of the heater house assembly was blown apart.
So I went to the local auto parts store and got quoted a price of 120$ for the assembly. I decided to grab one for 5 bucks at a junkyard instead.
Anyway, after installing it and filling the radiator with water, it overheats when driving.
Now I'm definitely not a mechanic, I did what any person would do logically. Now I'm nor so sure what the problem is.
I'd appreciate it if anyone could give me some pointers on what to check next.
