Hi all,

I've got a 95 EF Futura and recently the low coolant light lit up. So I opened her up and noticed the coolant was dripping out of the overflow pipe... So I topped it up and the same problem keeps occuring after a few days or so. I was hoping you guys could give me a hand on pointing out what is causing this problem.

Cheers.

oh ok, so just need to get it flushed out ey. How much do you think that would cost... or is it easy to do it yourself :? ?

Flush it out yourself, get a new rad cap and see how you go.

Get some NULON Coolant (small bottle about 1l, makes about 15-30).

Otherwise a new rad is under $200 original ford. Watch out if u use aftermarket ones as you can have problems.

You can get some radiator cleaner that you put in the system for 30 mins. Good stuff. Makes flushing the radiator a breeze.
