Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist you today. Give me just a moment to review your post, and I'll be right back with the help you need.
Are you able to connect a cooling system pressure tester to the reservoir and pressure test the cooling system?
With out being there to see the location of the leak, I would suspect the leak is the radiator, the lower hose connects to the driver side so that rules out the hose on that side but a pressure test would allow you to pressurize the system and in able you to pinpoint it.
The labor to remove and replace a standard radiator calls for 1.4 hours and a new Ford radiator can run right at $200.00 for a Standard Engine Cooling radiator and right at $412 for a Super Engine Cooling radiator depending on which one you have. If you handy, replacing it is very likely something you could do. If you need the steps to do this let me know and I can send them as well.
Let me send you the radiator steps just in case you need them. Post back if you have more questions and or need more help as well. See the link below for the steps.
