what the hell just hhappened

I'm driving my 01 GT to work barefoot (covered in poison ivy so I'm letting them air out). I go around the offramp and around the corner fluid pissed out all over my feet and the floor board. I don't have a sense of smell so I have no idea what it smells like. But it was freaking hot as hell. Judging by the reminents of it on my leg, its a dirty light brown color. Im thinking heater core lines clogged and finally went? It came from the upper corner to the right of the drivers pedal. I haven't had any driveability issues before or now. But my warranty is almost up so wtf is this?

My first thought would be heater core or heater hose.

Ill have to look into it when its light out. I swear I thought a snaked ate my foot. I almost wrecked the car, not only was it unexpected, it was hot. Not cool. It was watery, not brake fluid consistency but my coolant should be fresh. It has a brand new radiator...which we now may know why.


Edit: all stock except for mufflers.

Without a doubt, heater core. At least the dash/console isn't too hard to pull in these cars.

Think its just clogged? With my jeep there's a trick to disconnect the hoses and run a garden hose through it to flush out the crap. think it'll work for the stang if the warranty doesn't cover it? Since the warranty is for parts that effect safety and driveability.

For fluid to spray out of the system, a hose, or the core itself, has to be cracked, broken, line disconnected, etc. That's my understanding. Do you have a Haynes manual?

No haynes manual yet. Just got the car the 11th of last month. I don't even have much time to screw with it seeing as I work 3rd shift. Worse comes to worse they'll only charge me $50/hr labor...

I can only imagine how much I would freak out if that happened to me lol. Those are 2 sensations (hot + wet) that my brain would deff not be able to process if it just randomly happened on my foot.

Props for not wrecking lol

the hot coffee in the car has been done already. i don't think you can get ford for that one, but i do like the fact that you spilled it on your foot instead of your lap.

So your feet are covered in poison ivy and coolant burns... Sounds comfortable. My buddy broke a hose to the heater core hose on his ford ranger, pretty sure he fixed it in the parking lot it happened in that same day. As long as the core itself isn't shot should be a pretty quick fix. Just avoid any potentially harmful substance in the mean time, sounds like its not your week
