man thats such a long way...


make sure engine is cold! and off
turn on heater

drop the bottom rad hose
rip off the thermostat housing and the thermostat and grab a hose and stick it in any water hole you can and flush it out
ie put house were thermostat was
in the resovoir tank etc

after you have flushed out the old coolant replace with new coolant mixed to the correct ratio and add a new thermosta
or you can get it done at ford...
