Radiator Service & Repair for 1989 Ford E-350 Econoline

When Does My 1989 Ford E-350 Econoline Radiator Need Service?

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Ford E-350 Econoline radiator serviced, but you need to know the signs of radiator malfunction. 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.

Regular, proactive service on the radiator in your 1989 Ford E-350 Econoline is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Ford recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s a good idea to keep your eyes open for any indication that your radiator is failing. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you notice a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. When you experience one or more of these issues, head to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

Of all the parts in your 1989 Ford E-350 Econoline engine, the water pump is one that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. Without it, your engine won't maintain its optimal temperature.

From the radiator cap to the heater core, your 1989 Ford E-350 Econoline is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Ford E-350 Econoline Radiator Q&A

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 1989 Ford E-350 Econoline radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Ford? 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 radiators be cleaned? It could be a good idea to have your Ford E-350 Econoline radiator cleaned out a couple of times a year, maybe at the same time as a tire rotation or oil change.
