you have to watch the temp gauge now your block is prolly creacked or your head is cracked or warped.

the fluids should be checked.theres a 50/50 chance of a crack or warpage. it couldve just ran out of oil.

quite sure you mean coolant lol

the oil should be checked along with the coolant. some engines have low oil kills and some dont

no oil kills most engines either that or makes them devolop knocks so its safe to say that 100% of cars that have oil starvation die

just making sure. i have seen them out there.

btw just learned those ford suv's have shitty radiators, i had to order one the other day and they were on back order for 6 weeks

i used to work for a ford dealer, and usually being low on coolant wont cause the engine to go into fail safe or as i call it, limp home mode. btw fords dont have shitty radiators, people just have extraordinarily bad luck.
