A 1996 Ford Bronco came from the factory with a 50 / 50 mix of distilled
water and GREEN color antifreeze ( meeting Ford specification ESE-M97B44-A )
in the engine cooling system
* THAT includes the radiator
fill up the radiator and then fill up the over flow located on the pass. side of the truck half way
a 50/50 mix of a good commerical antifreeze (prestone etc.) and water
Cracked radiator end caps since the tranny fluid runs goes threw the caps for cooling that is the only way tranny fluid can get in the radiator
The thermostat is located in the water neck where the top radiator hose goes on. Its mounted in an O-ring, just pop it out with a screwdriver and replace it.
The 2 lines that come from the transmission and go to the radiator are full of transmission fluid and the radiator is what cools it.
Your speedometer doesn't work.
Its called the LOWER hose for a reason. It goes from the bottom of the radiator to the lower front of the engine. It's a black, round rubber tube. The radiator is the thing at the front where the green water goes in. The engine is the noisy hot metal thing under the hood. The hood is the big metal plate in front of the windshield...
follow the upper radiator hose where it goes into the top of the motor and it will be right there.
