Hi all, I have a '96 Ford Taurus that is on it's last legs. It has 300 000 km on it, and is suffering from serious problems. We had overheating issues last summer, which a flush, new thermostat and continuous refill of coolant helped fix. It was only overheating on the highways, but now it has started overheating after only a few minutes of city driving. There is a leak but it seems impossible to find. Any suggestions?

@AWalsh,
Have an exhaust gas analysis test done on the cooling system.

You most likely have head gasket trouble if you are not seeing a leak and it overheats that fast.

That was my guess as well, Rockhead.
