Wouldn't start. Found while looking for reason it wouldn't start. Was very surprised this was the reason since Loveland Ford's Service department had done a multi-point inspection (which supposedly includes inspecting the battery) the week before this happened.
I KEEP LOOSING ANTIFREEZE AND SOUNDS LIKE WATER IS DRAINING WHEN I PUSH THE GAS ITS NOT OVER HEATING MY O2 SENSORS KEEP GOING BAD NO HEAT ITS BLOWS HEAT OUT FOR A SHORT TIME THEN JUST COLD AIR
