My son has a 94 Escort LX and this weekend he noticed that when he’d stop the car he could hear the coolant boiling. The car temp gauge never registered too hot, and it never lost coolant. We checked the oil and it is not milky.
About 2 years ago it got a new water pump. Last summer a new thermostat, and then earlier this year a new radiator.
Last weekend he was stuck in a huge traffic jam. (4.5 hours for a normally 45 min. drive). I’m wondering if that could have weakened the radiator cap. He’s picking up a new one today, but wonder if there is something else we should check?
