Your " mechanic " should carry out a pressure test on cooling system for external leaks and a block test for head / head gasket / internal leaks .Also check coolant fan operating correctly and cutting in when it should . .

You can contact Ford dealership , give them vehicle details and ask if software updates are available .When serviced at Ford garages the cars are usually automatically checked and any updates applied .
