Bad Radiator
By Mike S. on


2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


2006 Ford Explorer From what i am reading it looks like our 2006 explorers are having radiator problems. I got the truck new in 2006 and in less then 1 year had to have the radiator replaced. the 2nd radiator is starting to give me problems now at about 40k miles. i notice my recovery tank getting low on coolant. I don't see any leaks but i can smell it. I took it to the dealer for a pressure test but they say they can't find a problem. Over all i don't have any other problems so far with the truck. I was at a Lowe's store and i parked my explorer next to another explorer. I asked the owner if his was a 2006 and if he had any problems. he said yes a 2006 and the radiator was replaced

I have the 06 Eddie Bower explorer version and had to replace the radiator at 55,000. Also had a park to gear issue with the transmition which was fixed with a new brake pedal switch.
