Coolant Recovery Tank 1989 Ford E250 Van 5.6 Liter Engine

1989 Ford E250Did my vehicle come with a coolant recovery tank? There is a long tube from the radiator that looks original but no tank. If yes, would a universal overflow tank do the trick? Thank you.


Yes and Yes.

Coolant Recovery Tank – Overflow Tank

One of the most common, if not THE most common, problems associated with trailer towing is engine overheating. If you have a cooling system without an expansion tank, you’ll definitely need to get an aftermarket expansion tank kit, preferably one with at least a 2 quart capacity. These kits are easily installed on the radiator’s overflow hose, and come with a pressure cap designed for expansion tanks.
