Is It Time for Service on My 1990 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon Cooling System?

It can be tough to know when to have your Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but 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.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 1990 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 you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad.

When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
