Has the radiator been removed and checked for blockage. It may be flowing enough to cool the engine when there is no load on it. Also check that the air con condensor isn't full of grass or bugs as this can also cause a problem.
If the vehicle is fitted with a viscous coupling this could also not be operating properly, it is known problem to get new viscous couplings new and they don't lock up properly.
Give it a try.

I would be inclined to get the entire cooling system checked professionally, as there could be several factors, being a 12 year old car after all. Another thing I would ask is whether the car is fitted with a transmission oil cooler (assuming its an auto). For towing heavy loads I would say that is a must to have fitted.

The biggest one would be to get take out the radiator and get it cleaned out. not just flush it but get it proffesionally clean out. I would also check the thermistat coz the falcons tend to get sticky thermistats

My advise would be to get the entire cooling system checked but i have seen a build up of grass and dry metter between the condensor and the radiator and that might be causing your problem.

Re: boiling problems 92 EB [help please]

my eb used to do that all the time even with a new cooling system, always would over heat. I have put a big 16" thermo fan on it now. i havent towed anything yet but i would be suprised if it did overheat. i dont have a tranny cooler yet either but that is an absolute must if ur towing, and ill be gettin one soon as well mainly to extend the life of the tranny....
as said above get the cooling system checked, they are known for gettin blocked radiators due to insufficent cleaning of the heads after casting and sand then clogs up the radiator......

btw how many ks does it have on it? if its about ~200-230 and hasnt had the head reco'd then i would be taking the radiator to get unblocked and a whole new cooling system.... u might get a few more k's out of the head then......

No they are no renown for boiling.
They do get grass stored in beween radiator and condensor. It's a goo idea to unbolt (not remove) the radiator and hose it out.

If it is a V8 then the radiator will be full of casting sand. Don't waste your money by flushing it. Buy new one. It is perfect opportunity to fit an EF radiator and thermos. They keep engine cool and give engine more power and torque for towing :D

Re: boiling problems 92 EB [help please]

there are not many radiators left that will have casting sand left in them now. I work on fords alot and we get alot of the E series falcon in for over heatin problems. i wasnt saying that was it i was merely sujecting that is one thing that does tend to fix the problem

Re: boiling problems 92 EB [help please]

okay, i know this post is like, a couple of weeks old now, but thought id add my 2 cents... im not yet a proud owner of a falcon, but hopefully come next weekend ill have an EBII up my sleeve... anyhow... i DO own a ford... Ford Meteor to be precise, and i had overheating problems for a while, mainly sitting in traffic with a warmed up engine. after many painful weeks, i realized that my fan wasnt running!!!
i found that if i turn my key back just that little bit after turning on the car, the electrics (fans, window wipers and jets, and yes, the fan!) all start to work. i know this is not a Falcon, BUT, my mates dad had an EB wagon, and he said that same thing used to happen to that too. food for thought, check it out, could be as simple as that!
