There is another component that off the top of my head I do not remember. On Edit — Ford Radiator Tom asked me about the radiator issue. And how the top of the housing presses against the O-Ring and seals. Let it warm until the thermostat opens and make sure that you have plenty of flow in the radiator. On Edit — Ford Hose Clamps. Warning, not proofed - will continue tomorrow as it's too late tonight.

There are a lot of points about the method of connect between the fins and the fin design itself. If the level is normal then you need to check the thermostat to make sure it is opening properly. It has now been there for a week, trying to replicate the stalling. If the coolant isn't flowing, the heat can't escape the engine block and it starts to overheat. The drain plug for the radiator is on the pass side of the vehicle, and uses the typical Ford plug, a Hex outer area for an open end wrench and a deeper recess for a 4mm Allen wrench. The Escape bottles are very easy to change. The approximate failure mileage was 19,000.

The other tools I use are vice grips, especially needle nose vice grips. That tells me either the heater core is partially plugged or there is an air block. Now the rest of the story. The contact returned to carriage Ford inc, but the vehicle was not diagnosed. In addition, they advised that the rear axle seal needed to be replaced.

Also, the contact stated that the vehicle would shift in and out of gear without warning. This fluid leak could possible cause a fire under the hood and by dripping out so fast it could cause the vehicle to stop in traffic without warning. Towed to firestone -- they said it was a temperature sensor and they didn't have the part. I have seen cables from when I was young that had the greenish mung just growing and growing and growing, going up the cable from the battery terminal, and seeming to keep destroying the cable even after cleaning. The contact opened the hood and noticed that rodents had entered the engine compartment and chewed through the hoses to the turbo charger, the radiator cap, coolant wires, intake manifold lines, and the purge solenoid. After having this checked out I am told that this is the transmission cooler and lines and there is no fix for the problem. Different types of pliers also work, and with some of the other clamps are the only tool you can use.

Not an unusual step in the used car market. The vehicle was not taken to a dealer or diagnosed. Your radiator is one of the essential parts that need to be replaced since it's responsible for protecting your engine from overheating.

Animals love its sweet taste, so even a spilling a small amount on your garage floor can end up in the dog's stomach pretty quickly. Ford would tow the car to pleasantville Ford they would fix a sensor, fill fluid, and give me the run around the final time I filled a complaint with bbb. Again, while I had the coolant drained it was a good time to do the replacement. Promptly wipe up any spilled fluid as it is highly toxic. It drives me crazy that there are so many connections and grounding points around a battery in different vehicles.

I sort of hate to clutter your excellent piece with my commentary, but figure if this is stickified, they can throw this one away. Some clamps are just regular spring clamps and keep to be held open. The vehicle is currently at the shawnee mission Ford 11501 shawnee mission pkwy. Here is where you are going to start to go insane if you follow the service manual's imagery and written intent by trying to working on these clamps and hoses from under the vehicle. If you think the Escape is bad, you should see the look on the county employees faces when I flush and change my F-350 diesel. Back to pleasantville Ford where they replaced a part. Note that later models have a coolant level sensor so that would also need to be dealt with.

From what I remember the sulfide can be across the ph spectrum, but I should leave that to a chemist. So here is my time consuming way of doing it. There is no recall and the warranty does not cover this repair. I am not able to restart vehicle and the engine temperature will spike to hot. Later the dash light said shut down engine, overheat.

Disconnect the lower radiator hose, the high-pressure transmission line and the degas return hose. The voltage regulation of decades past wasn't as good as today. A little twisting and use of my cotter pin removal tool gets the hose free. Pulled into a parking lot where my fiance came and added antifreeze. Some coolants will come premixed. And after all of this was bolted together I covered all of this with caliper silicone slide grease, also known as Silicone Dielectric Grease.

It may have looked brown, like an old penny, but it should have pretty much stopped deteriorating. I have a company car. From there the heat energy to passed to the fins and finally to the passing air. To do this, run the motor to temperature and check the top and bottom hoses. Ford has used a good variety of hose clamps on the Escape Hose Clamp-City , many of which can be removed and installed using a cable or hydraulic tools made specifically for them. Remove the lower center support bolt.
