Ford Explorer Leaking Radiator
Ford Explorer Problem
Average Mileage: 43,723 mi (23,000 mi - 64,446 mi)
My 2008 Explorer radiator failed on its own. I later noticed that my fan will always run trying to keep up with the heat generated. I also had to keep topping coolant. On making a little research, i found out that its a common problem with 2006 thru 2008 ford explorer and so many people had replaced their radiator. The cost of doing this can set you back almost a thousand bucks. I did replace the leaking radiator along with the reservoir and the AC evaporator but i did something which put paid to the radiator ever busting again. i found out that the radiator cap is a very important part of the cooling system and its actually very important to the life of your radiator. I found out that the vapor return valve was stuck in the closed position. All i had to do was remove and gave it a thorough wash working the valve up and down. I later found out that my first radiator got busted due to a failed radiator cap which was not allowing excess vapor or steam back into the reservoir i.e. my radiator could not breath. So give your radiator cap a good wash today and you can save a lot on replacing your radiator.
