Hey all,
I have a 95 v8 tbird I recently purchased and I did an engine coolant flush. When I pour in the coolant I can watch it drain out rapidly from the coolant container. I can't seem to find a leak anywhere. Any ideas where it could be leaking? I don't know the configuration of the cooling system very well.

I should add that this car sat in the desert and wasn't used for a long time and a woman owned it briefly and drove it with no coolant. Is it possible the engine had no coolant and that is why it is pouring in and disappearing so fast? I've looked over everything and can't find any indication of a leak. Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks!

It can take up to 4 gallons; but if you're still putting it in, check the dipstick ... you may have a bad leak into the oil from the coolant passages.

I suspected that I hadn' t put in enough. I put in much less than that. You're a big help, thank you. I will try adding more and report back.
