upper radiator hose and T-stat o-ring

I just took my truck to the dealer for a coolant leak on the driveway. They tell me that the O ring for the thermostat is bad and have to replace it and the upper radiator hose. No biggie but they say none of this in warranty at 45,000. miles and I have the FORD ESP premium plan as well. I know that the radiator was replaced at the dealership before I bought it and all of this was taken apart.. Any suggestions?

I would just buy to up dated hose(it now has 2 orings on the t stat end) and a tstat assemble or kit and install it. You should be able to install yourself if you are at all mechanically inclined. I would think it's about $200 in parts, your deductable is $100 anyway.

If the basic part number that has failed is 8575 (off the top of my head) which is the thermostat, it should be covered under diesel engine coverage.

Did they cover you under warranty? I just noticed mine is leaking as well at 44,000 miles and I have the extended warranty. If it is a easy fix I would rather just do it myself and not loose my truck for who knows how long.

depends on the orientation of the clip holding the hose to the radiator, whether it's an easy job or not.

If you have to take the fan shroud off, to get the clip off because it's facing the wrong way, it's not fun.

I just wish problems like these would become more of a recall, since the issue seems inevitable. It would be nice if it could be taken care of before potentially doing damage to your motor.
