Some vehicles do not have radiator caps but they have expansion tank preasure caps. You add coolant to the radiator by adding to the expansion tank.

Unless you can diagnose this yourself and repair it your best bet is to take it to a shop. 10 times out of 10 when only half the radiator heats up its always a clogged radiator. The real question is if its clogged what part fell aprt and clogged it. Being such a new vehicle this should not happen unless you ended up with a defective part when the vehicle was assembled.

Now if someone had done a flush on the system then its possible you have an air pocket and the system needs to be bleed better.

SOURCE: Have 2002 Ford Escape, Where's the Radiator Cap??

This is where you fluid goes. If I were you, I would stay away from those sealants. But yes you can put the sealant in the reserve, but it;s best if you drain half the water out, pour in coolant and then re-fill. This gives it a better chance to flow throughout the system. Sometimes these sealants can cause more harm than good in the long run.

My 01 ford escape is registering a problem with the radiator light coming on but the temp remains on half.the fan seems to run constantly and sometimes the radiator reservoirbacks up to overfull

I think that your temp gauge or sender is faulty. Check that the radiator isn't blocked with corrosion. Pop the cap when cold and start it. Let it warm until the thermostat opens and make sure that you have plenty of flow in the radiator. If the radiator is blocked, you will get a sudden flow of water out of the cap when the thermostat opens. Another issue can be a broken/corroded water pump impeller.

2001 Ford Escape. Coolant leaking from somewhere. Went through bottle of coolant in 2 days.

If there is no sign of a leak you need to test for cylinder head leaks.
Warm up the engine and remove the radiator cap. Top up the water to the neck of the filler. Squeeze the top hose a couple of times to shift any air in the top tank of the radiator. Run the engine on idle and check for bubbles it the radiator, keep it topped up to the neck. Bubbles showing means you have a head gasket problem.

Where do i find the cap for the radiator

Cars have been replaced by the over flow tank. You'll take off the cap at the overflow tank and fill there. Radiators rarely have caps on them anymore.

The radiator in my 2005 ford escape

Just take the rad cap off the cold engine then start it up and let it run with the heat turned on high for the length of time it takes to get heat out of the vents.Shut the vehicle off for a few minutes and then top up the rad and the overflow bottle.Start it again and if it does not lower the rad any,shut it off and put the rad cap back on.

Coolant light comes on for about 1 minute on 2003 Ford Escape. Do I need to add coolant or flush?

This usually means add coolant.
With the engine cold, take the radiator cap off. Its probably low on coolant,fill it up and put the cap back on.Also check the overflow reservoir and if needed fill it to the cold line. You probably have a coolant leak that needs to be fixed.
