Having problems with your 2001 Ford Mustang ?
Check engine light is on with code number p1285 cylinder overheat. wat is causing this?
First check your coolant level. If low you have a leak somewhere. You may also be low &/or have an air pocket in cooling system. You will need to bleed system cold just open bleeder screw on top of waterpump then fill cooling system till coolant runs out of bleeder. Snug bleeder. Then run till warm loosen bleeder slowly make sure only coolant not air comes out. Be careful do not get burned. Also clear codes. Then see if thats all it was.If no more problems your done. If code reappears you have a leak or blown head gasket.
