Draining, Filling and Bleeding
in 96 Bronco & F Series from Workshop Manual

"...WARNING: DO NOT STAND IN LINE WITH OR NEAR ENGINE COOLING FAN BLADE (8600) WHEN ENGINE (6007) IS RUNNING.
WARNING: NEVER REMOVE THE RADIATOR CAP (8100) UNDER ANY CONDITIONS WHILE THE ENGINE IS OPERATING. FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS COULD RESULT IN DAMAGE TO THE COOLING SYSTEM OR ENGINE OR PERSONAL INJURY. TO AVOID HAVING SCALDING HOT COOLANT OR STEAM BLOW OUT OF THE RADIATOR (8005), USE EXTREME CARE WHEN REMOVING THE RADIATOR CAP FROM A HOT RADIATOR. WAIT UNTIL THE ENGINE HAS COOLED, THEN WRAP A THICK CLOTH AROUND THE RADIATOR CAP AND TURN IT SLOWLY TO THE FIRST STOP. STEP BACK WHILE THE PRESSURE IS RELEASED FROM THE COOLING SYSTEM. WHEN YOU ARE SURE ALL THE PRESSURE HAS BEEN RELEASED, PRESS DOWN ON THE RADIATOR CAP (STILL WITH A CLOTH), TURN AND REMOVE IT.
To prevent loss of coolant when draining the radiator, attach a hose on the radiator draincock (8115) and drain the coolant from the radiator into a clean container.
To drain the radiator, open the radiator draincock located at the bottom of the radiator and remove the radiator cap or supply tank cap. The cylinder block of the V-8 engine is drained by removing the drain plugs located on both sides of the cylinder block (6010). The six-cylinder engines have one drain plug located at the right rear of the cylinder block.
If replacing coolant, dispose of old coolant in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations. Promptly clean up any spilled coolant.
Without degas bottle, fill the cooling system by installing the cylinder block drain plug(s) and close the radiator draincock. Disconnect the heater outlet hose at the water pump (8501) to bleed or release trapped air in the system. When the coolant begins to escape, connect the heater outlet hose.
Fill the radiator until the coolant is between the cap seal in the filler neck to 38mm (1-1/2 inches) below the cap seal. Install radiator cap.
Start engine, warm up, shut off engine. Allow engine to cool, remove radiator cap and check coolant level. Fill as required..."
Next up is from my 96's Owner's Guide;
Checking the engine coolant
Your vehicle’s engine coolant protects the engine from overheating in the summer and from freezing in the winter. Check the level of the engine coolant at least once a month, but preferably each time you stop for fuel. Simply
look at the engine coolant recovery reservoir located in the engine compartment. To locate this reservoir, see the diagram of your vehicle’s
engine under Engine types in this chapter. If the engine coolant has not been checked for a long period of time the engine coolant reservoir may eventually empty. If the engine coolant reservoir empties, check the engine coolant level
in the radiator. Read the following warnings before removing the radiator cap. If it is necessary to fill the radiator, refer to the Engine Coolant Refill Procedure in this chapter for instructions.
Adding engine coolant
1. Before you remove the cap, turn the engine off and let it cool. Even when the engine is cool, be careful when you remove the radiator cap.
2. When the engine is cool, wrap a thick cloth around the cap and turn it slowly counterclockwise to the first stop.
3. Step back while the pressure releases.
4. When you are sure that all the pressure has been released, use the cloth to press, turn, and remove cap.
5. Stand away from the radiator opening. Hot steam may blow out or hot engine coolant may even splash out.
The factory-installed solution of Ford Premium Cooling System Fluid and water will protect your vehicle to s35°F (s37°C). Check the freeze protection rating of the engine coolant at least once a year, just before winter.
Add engine coolant only to the recovery reservoir. If the coolant level is low, add to the reservoir a 50/50 mixture of water and the type of engine coolant that Ford specifies. You may add water by itself only in an emergency, but
you should replace it with a 50/50 mixture as soon as possible.
Ford Premium Cooling System Fluid is an optimized formula that will protect all metals and rubber elastomers used in Ford engines for four years or 50,000 miles (80,000 km). It is not necessary and not recommended to use supplemental coolant additives in your gasoline powered vehicle. These additives may harm your engine cooling system. Follow the recommended service interval for changing your engine coolant.
NOTE: When you change or add engine coolant, it is important to maintain
your engine coolant concentration between 40% (-11°F [-24°C]) and 60%
(-62°F [-52°C]), depending on your local climate conditions. Below 40% you will lose freeze protection and above 60% your engine may overheat on a warm day.
NOTE: Do not use an engine coolant that does not meet all 14 requirements of Ford Specification ESE-M97B44-A. The use of an improper coolant may void your warranty for the engine cooling system. Use only a premium nationally recognized brand name engine coolant. Ford Motor Company expressly authorizes the Ford Rotunda engine coolant recycling process
and chemicals. Use only Ford Rotunda recycled engine coolant or an equivalent recycled engine coolant that is certified by the supplier to meet
Ford specification ESE-M97B44-A. NOTE: Always dispose of used automotive
fluids in a responsible manner. Follow your community’s standards for
disposing of these types of fluids. Call your local recycling center to find out
about recycling automotive fluids.
Use Ford Premium Cooling System Fluid or an equivalent engine coolant that meets Ford Specification ESE-M97B44-A. Do not use alcohol or methanol antifreeze and do not use engine coolant mixed with alcohol or methanol
antifreeze. If you do not use the proper coolant, the aluminum radiator on your vehicle will corrode.
Leave the engine coolant in all year. Make sure that the coolant will not freeze at the temperature level in which you drive during winter months. Keep a mixture of engine coolant in your engine that has a protection rating of at least -34°F (-37°C), or whatever protection rating is appropriate for the climate in which you live.
You may add water by itself only in an emergency, but you should replace it with a 50/50 or appropriate mixture as soon as possible.
Have your dealer check the engine cooling system for leaks if you have to add a quart (liter) of engine coolant more than once a month
Inspect all engine and heater system hoses for deterioration, leaks and loose clamps before adding or replacing engine coolant. Make whatever repairs or replacements that are necessary using Motorcraft parts or their equivalents.
Engine coolant drain and flush To drain your vehicle’s engine coolant:
1. Turn off the engine and let it cool. Fully depressurize the engine cooling system by covering the radiator cap with a thick cloth and turning it slowly counterclockwise to the first stop. Step back while the pressure releases.
2. Remove the cap.
3. Attach a small hose to the drain tube at the bottom of the radiator.
4. Let the engine coolant drain into a suitable container. Disconnect the lower radiator hose at the radiator connector and drain any remaining engine coolant into a container.
5. Reconnect the lower radiator hose and close the radiator drain cock.
Proper procedures for flushing the cooling system can be found in the Truck Service Manual.
Engine coolant refill procedure
After you have drained the engine cooling system:
1. Fill the radiator with a 50/50 mixture of the specified engine coolant concentrate and water. Allow several minutes for trapped air to escape (bubble out) and for engine coolant to flow through the radiator.
2. Replace the radiator cap to its fully installed position, then back off to the first stop. This will prevent high pressure from building up in the cooling system during this part of the fill procedure.
3. Start and idle the engine until the thermostat opens and the radiator upper hose becomes warm.
4. Shut off the engine and allow the engine to cool. Cover the radiator cap with a thick cloth and cautiously remove it. Step back while the pressure releases.
5. Finally, check the radiator and add more engine coolant if needed, following the procedures noted above. Reinstall the radiator cap securely, when finished.
6. If more engine coolant is necessary, fill the overflow reservoir to the appropriate level marked on the bottle..."
