Question about Ford E-150
There could be several problems with it overheating. 1. Low coolant level. Top off with recommended coolant. 2. Have the radiator cap pressure tested. A cap that cannot hold proper pressure can allow fluid to leak. 3. Spent coolant. When coolant breaks down, it cannot keep the engine cool properly. A coolant flush would be recommended. 4. A stuck thermostat. A stuck thermostat can impede the flow of coolant through the system. 5. Coolant leaks. It could be the radiator, water pump, thermostat housing, hoses, or freeze plugs. Have a pressure check done on the system. 6. Blown head gasket. When a vehicle overheats, it puts a strain on the engine and gaskets. Have a compression check done on each cylinder. These are some steps to take toward getting this issue resolved. Good luck.
