2013 Ford Escape Coolant Reservoir: A Comprehensive Maintenance Guide

Welcome back to How to Escape! Today, we’re going to walk you through the process of filling coolant in your 2013 and newer Ford Escape.

First and foremost, it’s important to prioritize safety by wearing protective eyewear when handling coolant. Additionally, only open the coolant reservoir cap when the engine has cooled down and is turned off.

When it comes to coolant, you can opt for the 50/50 pre-diluted version or the concentrated version that requires mixing. Using a funnel with a flexible neck can make the process more convenient, allowing you to access the cap tucked underneath the wiper cowl.

It’s worth noting that using a regular long funnel may result in coolant spillage due to the design of the coolant tank. Therefore, a funnel with a flexible neck is recommended to avoid wastage and potential misconception of coolant leakage.

Locate the coolant tank cap and observe the max and minimum fill lines. If you find that the coolant level is below the minimum line, it’s crucial to identify and address any leaks.

Insert the flexible-neck funnel into the tank and carefully add the coolant until it reaches the max fill line. After refilling the coolant, securely place the cap back on the tank.

Once the tank is refilled and the cap is tightly sealed, ensure any spills are cleaned up. If you have encountered a leak or have additional tips to share, feel free to leave a comment. Your input can help improve the process for others.
