Car Gets hot

Recommended Posts

Just got my contour Gl 5 speed manual, Its been sitting for a few years and has small coolant leak, runs fine other than while sitting in traffic or driving around town it gets very hot. It hasn't over heated yet but its shows about to the L on the gauge, coolant an has been seen once running right after start up but wont turn on any other time.  Any thoughts? thank you!

If it's a GL 2.0L, they normally leak around the thermostat housing. Very common issue. I would check for signs of leakage around the thermostat housing and the cylinder head.
