You are likely leaking coolant from a heater line or hose,check the hose that comes from the water pump{smaller of the two] and see if it has a leak in it or if there is just a loose hose clamp.If you can't find a leak in the hoses or any steel tubes then you need to take it to a radiater shop and have it pressure tested to see if you have a leak in the intake manifold gasket or maybe even the head gasket,good luck.

How to check for leaks of antifreeze/in 97 expedition smell of antifreeze

Hi Sharlene,so you smell antifreeze.Raise your hood and check your antifreeze over flow container,you should have a l and a h mark on it,high and low.If low,then it's leaking somewhere,look at the radiator cap and overflow hose for leak,look at over flow container for leak from hose going to it from radiator,look all over engine,look at top and bottom radiator hoses and clamps for leaks,if leaking there,tighten clamp with flat head screw driver,if no leak is found,get under vehicle and see if any antifreeze is visible,maybe water pump,look on ground for leak and follow,check floor board on driver side,heater core could be bad,check hoses going to heater core from engine firewall.

The radiator in my 1998 Ford Expedition is leaking from the side. As soon as I put coolant in the over flow reserve it comes gushing out of the radiator. Can this be fixed?

Hi, the side of the radiator is plastic, if its leaking there its getting ready to leak other places to, you need to replace radiator. Patching the problem will only waste your time.

Its the radiator that wy its a mist take it back to the place you bought it from they new this before they sold it to you and that explanes the oil problem to the oil from the transmisson is cooled because it goes thruogh the radaitor as well and sometimes the engine oil depending if your oil is remotely cooled This is there fault not yours

Looking for the number 5 cylinder

I believe that would be the drivers front cylinder closest to the radiator. At one time, I think on the 1999 model of that same vehicle there was a problem with a radiator hose leaking and dripping on the coilpak and #5 plugwire. Might be same thing.

You can take it to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan to verify a misfire.

Having problem replacing the driver side head light bulb.

Look for stainless steel clips above the lamp assembly in the support frame around the radiator and grill. Lift these clips straight up to allow the lamp to tilt forward letting you reach behind it to un-clip the pigtail and turn the retainer ring counter clockwise. Pull the bulb straight out the rear of the lamp assembly, keep bare fingers and dirt off the new bulb glass and reverse the order of dis-assembly.

I was told it didn't have one but my husband did find it. You have to remove the mud guard located under the radiator and it will be on the drivers side of the radiator.
