Last week my 2016 Escape with about 50,000 miles on it nearly overheated because the coolant level got so low. By the time the warning bells went off, the temperature was all the way to the 120 mark on the thermometer. This was after less than one mile of driving. I had to pull over to allow the engine to cool down and then I limped into the Ford dealership since I still have an extended warranty. Turns out that the plastic reservoir and cap (and whatever else is connected to it) had to be replaced because I was losing coolant when I was driving. The cap had malfunctioned and coolant was shooting out when it was sent into the reservoir. Since it didn't happen when I parked the car anywhere, there was no evidence on the ground. I have never heard of anything like this happening to anyone in any other car. I had last checked the coolant level about 3 months prior and there was no issue. The coolant level was fine. Anyone ever heard of something like this happening or was I just ridiculously neglectful?
