Open the petcock on the bottom of the radiator and allow the old coolant to drain.

Close the petcock.

To refill you will first fill the degas container to the cold fill range, leave the cap off the canister. Turn all of the heater controls to warm and turn fan to full. Idle the engine until the thermostat opens. Top off the coolant and put the cap back on. Idle at 3000 RPM for several seconds and then idle again for a minute or so. Check the level and then repeat this 4 times, or until heat is coming from the front and rear heat units.

If you want to flush the system you will have to remove the thermostat and hook up your flush system to the radiator hose at the thermostat housing. Follow the instructions on your flush system then put the thermostat back in. Follow the instructions above to refill.

    I am changing the thermostat and know I need to flush the system, but what is the flush system you talk about and where is the bleed valve to get the air out?

SOURCE: 2004 Ford F-250 6.0 liter diesel loosing coolant

i'm getting "internal control module keep alive memory?" for fault p0603. which i think has nothing to do with using coolant. i assume you're finding no leaks, so it's leaking somewhere you can't see. does it smell of antifreeze in the interior? is the carpet wet? the heater core might be leaking into the interior. there could be a slow leak on the top of the engine and it's boiling away before it has a chance to pool. fill your reservoir fully. let the engine get hot. inspect for steam in the engine compartment.

Ford Freestar 2006 Engine is temperature is normal but , the dashboard gauge is showing high temperature. Which parts need to be replaced to bring back the dashboard gauge to normal.


How do you think the engine temperature is normal if the gauge is telling you the engine is overheated?

make sure the engine is filled with coolant both at the reservoir and at the filler cap on the engine itself. Usually this cap has the thermostat below it. If they are full, try burping the system by squeezing the radiator hoses with a sealed system and the engine hot. Wear gloves!

if that doesn't fix it, buy a new thermostat. They are cheap and easy to install.

If if that doesn't fix it then you are looking at emptying the coolant system and back flushing it after adding something like CLR or Radiator Flush.

Might also be a fault with the pump or a slipping belt?

Hi have a 2004 freestar I changed radiator-, water pump , thermostat, engine coolant if I drive on flat street my van runs good temp is normal but if I go uphill the gauge goes up to almost red once I...


Sounds like a faulty temp guage/r a strange malfuntion in a sensor to me as well, only doing it when it going up hill really makes no sense for the way the cooling system works so I doubt that its actually running hot, which is likely why he asked about the gurgling noise, it would force water back into the resivoir if it was running hot assuming that the thermostatic radiator cap is working properly.

I have a 2004 freestar that will not go in reverse unless i rev the engine and put it in reverse real fast. Also I put it in drive and go. when I stop it cuts off.


Sounds like transmission sleeping sickness, Ford had that problem with some of it's explorers not wanting to go into reverse when cold, Try to find a shop that uses a machine to flush the transmission instead of a filter change, we use BG products and equipment at our shop with great results.
