For a 2001 Job2 Ford V6~4.0L~SOHC, the Coolant system capacity is approximately 14.00Qts\13.25Ltr.
Coolant needs to be flushed+renewed & the ThermoStat & RadiatorCap replaced, every 3Yrs\33kMiles.
Inspect other Coolant systems parts: Hoses, HeaterValve, Fan+Clutch, Pump, Belt..., & replace as needed.
Per the OwnersGuide, the basic Coolant Spec#ese-m97b44-a for this engine is LiteGreen Ford#vc-5dil.
The OwnersGuide also suggests an upgrade to Spec#wss-m97b51-a1 which is Gold\Yellow Ford#vc-7dil;
this Gold\Yellow formula has additional CorrosionInhibitors + Lubricants which are beneficial & preferred.
Products below satisfy these Specs; compare SafetyDataSheet Ingredients if considering other Coolants.
These are HybridOrganicAcidTech\HOAT formulas without any 2EthylHexAcid\2EHA & may be mixed;
Coolants with 2EHA are reported to damage seals in the V6~4.0L~SOHC & should NOT be used\mixed.

Only use these\equal LiteGreen\Gold\Yellow Coolants; do NOT use Blue\DarkGreen\Orange\Pink\Red.
