If you feel comfortable doing it then yes, go ahead. This may take care of the problem or you may find the actual problem while doing it. At the very least you will eliminate one possibility from the list. Sounds like the pump may be old anyway if you suspect it so go for it.

If you find no antifreeze in the radiator of your 91 Ford Aerostar what should you do next?

I would say if it's warm weather fill the rad with water and see if you can find were it is leaking. If it is a hose try to replace it yourself. If the rad is leaking see if it is just the drain plug open. If not try replacing the rad yourself. If at all possible do not use that stop leak stuff as it will also clog up your rad.
