Hi mvb. Congratulations on your new Fusion and welcome to the Fusion Sport Forums!Hey guys, I recently just bought a 2018 FFS with about 38k miles. I’ve had it for about 3 weeks, and I’ve noticed that coolant has been disappearing way too quickly. Are there any common coolant leak issues that might be the problem?
Curious about this as well as I hear running water being the dash but my coolant level hasn't dropped since I bought the car almost 2 month ago.Hopefully, you can say no to all the scenario's listed by @bbf2530.
@mvb do you hear the sound of running water, coming from behind the infotainment area? If so, you have a low level of coolant. Now, before you laugh at me, here is the deal. When the car is at running temp and the system is pressurized, the coolant reservoir can look full. Once the pressure drops the coolant drops down to its real level. As @bbf2530 has stated above. Check the level when it is cold.
If you are low, while cold, fill reservoir with coolant to the seam just above the "MAX" fill line. Drive the car until you get up to operating temps (mid-line on the temp gauge). Make sure to turn the heat on so that the fluid can run through the heater core and "burp" out any air. Drive for at least 15-20 minutes. Then, when you can let the car get back to "cold", check your reservoir level again. If you are still a little low, fill to the "MAX" line and you should be good to go. You should not hear the running water sound anymore.
If you hear the waterfall sound, then yes, you have air in the system.Curious about this as well as I hear running water being the dash but my coolant level hasn't dropped since I bought the car almost 2 month ago.
When cold after sitting overnight the level on the coolant tank is slightly about the max line... is there air in there somewhere?
I will try running the heater more, I thought it was soothing and part of the noise cancellation 🤣
