Hey all- I ran a search to see if this topic had come up before and didn't see anything so....*disclaimer* I don't want to start a brand war here!
I thought I'd share some info with those of us who tow with a 2008-present F250/F350 with the 6.7 diesel pkg. My truck just turned 37,000 miles (yup, 1k over warranty) and I found a puddle of antifreeze under the drivers side front behind plastic air dam. After exhausting my efforts to locate leak I took it to a Ford garage near where I work. That afternoon I got the call saying I needed a $1500 radiator job
. Great! They gave me a phone number to Ford to see if they could do anything and in the mean time did some internet research only to find out I'm not the only one having this issue. After a couple days I finally heard from Ford, but the best they could do was 50% coverage
(no thanks). I told them if I had to pay $750-800, i'd put that money into an aftermarket aluminum radiator ($950) and pay the labor out of pocket. Sometimes piece-of-mind on the road cost a little extra. So,if anyone is curious, I ordered a Mishomoto for it for $950 with free shipping. Google the issue and good luck.
