Question about Ford Taurus
I just bought a 1996 Ford Taurus and it is running okay but it started running hot today. When I raised the hood antifreeze was bubbling out of the cap on the plastic container where I put the antifreeze in. The car smelled hot too. How can I tell if it just needs more antifreeze or if something needs repaired? How do I check the antifreeze level? My Ford truck has a way of just opening the cap and looking but, I can't find a cap on the Taurus.
What is it when your car smoking and it smells really hot when u pop the hood

If its boiling over then your coolant flow is blocked. I would start with replacing the thermostat sounds like its not opening.
