Explorer Eddie Bauer V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,000 miles

Parking after a 250 mi. trip, I discovered antifreeze running out of the engine. I found that due to the design of the large radiator hose, it is perfectly in line of the fan blades of the engine. During normal use, the blades eventually cut into the hose allowing for all fluid to escape. Fortunately, I was parked.
