Fix Coolant leak Ford Escape, Mercury Mariner
If you own a 2006 Ford Escape or Mercury Mariner with the 3.0L engine and have a coolant leak, the problem may be a small crack in the coolant reservoir. Ford has discovered a pattern failure in this reservoir bottle and has redesigned it to correct the flaw. The new part is 1L8Z-8A080-BB. To confirm the source of the leak, pressure the cooling system and look for seepage from the bottom of the reservoir bottle at the seam.
