2005 Tribute overheating

Recommended Posts

My 2005 Mazda Tribute has been leaking fluid for a short while now and I'm wondering if it may be the head gasket . I haven't moved it far , just to see how long it would take to over heat . The reservoir is still up almost to the max line but there is small amounts leaking out onto my driveway . Could a hose be blocked and making it leak ? Also , I had to refill the coolant a few weeks ago because it was empty . When I refilled it I had it on ramps and took the cap off while it was cool and let it run for a bit with the cap off to try to ovoid air locks . It was working for about 3 days but it's gone back to leaking and over heating .

Here's a topic here about Overheating troubleshooting. Even though the specs are for 626, the general diagnose still applies to most vehicles including Mazda Tribute/Ford Escape.
