If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it’s vital to know what to look for. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.
Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 1985 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon is essential for long-term engine health. To keep your radiator functioning, Ford recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you notice leaking coolant, overheating, or an illuminated low coolant dashboard light. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

If you bring your vehicle to Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start with a comprehensive inspection of your Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon’s cooling system.
