It can be tough to know when to have your Ford E-150 radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it's still extremely important. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.
Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2004 Ford E-150 is a huge factor in the longevity of your engine. In fact, Ford recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.
