How to Change the Radiator Fluid in a ’92 Ford F-150


In 1975, Ford released the F-150 to fill out the F-series lineup, which already consisted of the F-100, F-250 and F-350. Ford intended for the F-150 to be just a gap-filler between its light-duty F-100 and its heavy-duty F-250 and F-350, but the F-150’s sales took off, and it accounted for more than one-third of F-series sales in its debut year. The 1992 F-150 had three engine options: a 4.9-liter in-line six-cylinder, a 5.0-liter V-8 and a 5.8-liter V-8. Changing the coolant in all three engines is a straightforward task that can help maintain the health of your 1992 F-150’s cooling system.
