Question about 1998 Ford F150 Regular Cab
Replaced two freeze plugs on sides of engine
Check your hoses where the heater core comes out of. If the clamps are old replace them. Check around your intake manafold and your heads. Check your dipstick for a milky substance at the bottum of the stick. Is your thermostat in the rear of the engine. Check this too. Also if you just replaced any freeze plugs check all of them even the ones you just replaced. They may not be in correctly.

Tips for a great answer:
Inspect the hydraulic fluid level with the vehicle parked on a level surface, the folding top in the closed position, and the stowage compartment lid open.
When new, the power folding top hydraulic fluid is golden clear. As the system is cycled, it picks up the carbon black from the numerous O-ring seals used in the system. The carbon black acts like a dye and causes the fluid to darken considerably and take on a black appearance. This is a normal occurrence and no repair attempts should be performed, as replacement fluid will also darken.
Place a protective covering over the interior and the adjacent body panels. Locate the hydraulic pump in the folding top storage compartment area on the right side. Remove the rear quarter trim panel. Refer to Rear Compartment Side Trim Replacement - Right Side . Place a shop towel around the pump motor to control any hydraulic fluid spillage.
Important: Wait 5 minutes before separating the hydraulic cylinder lines at any connectors.
Remove the reservoir filler plug. Add fluid GM P/N 88901975 or (Canadian P/N 88901976) ONLY, add the fluid until the level is at the middle of the indicator line on the reservoir.
Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice in the Preface section.
Install the reservoir filler plug.
Folding Top Deck Lid Access
In the event that the rear compartment lid is inhibited from conventionally opening due to a folding top symptom, displaying a TOP NOT SECURE message or that the folding top operation can not complete the opening or closing sequence as it is inhibited by the rear compartment latch being ajar, displaying a TOP INOP-TRUNK message, follow the steps below to determine the specific Tech 2 Special Function to gain access.
Important: Allow the system a minimum of three minutes to bleed down pressure after the last cycle.
