I bought my 1995 Ford Escort LX in 2000 from my great uncle’s estate (Cambridge, MA) and it had 1,900 original miles. I’m now up to 127,000 miles which includes driving (moving) to Florida. Automatic transmission. Mechanic installed new radiator recently but because the driver’s door was replaced with a 1994 door, mechanic thought the car was a 1994 and installed a 1994 radiator. Car is in excellent shape except “check radiator” light goes on and the reservoir always needs to be filled up. There is no fluid leaking under the car. My mechanic says if he can’t find a leak, it can’t be repaired. But my question is how much longer can I live with this? Is the problem a radiator that’s a year too old for the car? And where does the radiator fluid go?
Thanks so much. Absolutely love your show!
