#12 of 13 Re: expedition temp gauge while towing... [scubastevehere]
Dec 06, 2007 (1:00 pm)
Update...Replacing the radiator and hoses repaired this problem of overheating while towing...The new radiator was TWICE the capacity... maybe ford realized this was a problem and updated it...I had had one mechanic take temp readings all over the radiator to see if it was dissipating heat properly and the readings were good. However this wasn't a good enough test......The old radiator had a layer of stuff "set up like cement" inside it say'a the mechanic.. he was right NOW the heater doesn't get up to temp.. how much ya wanna bet , I need a new heater core for the same reasons...PS my butthead mechanic at the local ford dealer wrote on my first repair bill "the trailer is oversized for the vehicle" He couldn't be more wrong, he was just lazy and didn't want to spend the time troubleshooting properly....Maybe he wanted this on file so he wouldn't have to do warranty work on my ford rebuild.
