    this popped up on my Dash I talked to the Ford and thought I would get the coolant change because I was about do anyway 69,000 miles on my 2011,,,I can't believe it's 10 years old already Ford dealer told me it's not necessarily the coolant being changed is what I need he told me have a diagnosed for $185 and then see what it needs? I get that it might not be the coolant change will do the trick but why not start there?? am I missing something? thanks in advance Gary

    $185 is nuts. All they need to do is test your coolant to make sure the additive levels and chemistry is within specs. If not they can make adjustments or just change it altogether.

    I actually just got a F350 a few weeks back and had the same thing come up 100miles after driving it. Took it to the Ford dealership and they checked it for free . May just depend on the dealer. I was able to read all about this though with a quick Google search.
