1987 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon Radiator Repair & Service

When Does My 1987 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon Radiator Need Service?

It can be tough to know when to have your Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it’s vital to know what to look for. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. So, what happens when the radiator isn’t working quite like it should? You guessed it – your engine overheats, and it may even break down completely.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1987 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Ford recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. You might be driving around (or about to be stranded) with a failing radiator if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Questions About Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon Radiators

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 1987 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • Why is the coolant light on my Ford dashboard on? Your engine might be about to overheat. If your low coolant light is on, pull over in a safe area and wait for your engine temperature to go down. Once it’s safe to do so, bring your car to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care to have the coolant system inspected.
  • What are the puddles in my driveway or garage floor? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • Can Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon radiators be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
