had the same problem on mine.. 08 f350 upper rad hose O ring on engine side.. you need to replace the O ring, $5 part, and need to make sure you clean the aluminum housing really well before re-installing

The O ring problem sounds good to me. My problem ended up being the cracked radiator...

I think the radiator hose O-ring is a cab off job?

Kidding!

Dumb question but if you are modded (DPF delete, Spartan, etc...) will they cover the radiator? Or should I just go through the hassle of returning to stock. 3yr / 36k is expired.

-Or- is the O-ring thing a DIY job? I am decently handy....
