Need Help! Loosing coolant - can't figure out where it is going!
I know there has been a couple of threads about this, but I have not found anyone who has posted the solution.
Here is my story:
I bought an 08 F350 CC Diesel in April with 35000 miles on it. When I changed the oil at 40,000 miles, I noticed coolant was low. I have not seen any evidence nor smelled anything, so I added to bring it up to the middle of the marks. Then I marked the level with a magic marker. Sure enough, the level would drop about 1/16" every week or so.
I brought it to the dealer, they pressure tested it and said there is no leak.
The day after I got it back from the dealer, I noticed antifreeze on the garage floor - radiator started leaking.
Brought it back in and they replaced the radiator (not under warantee) $950.
So now I have a brand new radiator, but I am still losing the same amount of coolant as before - no smell, no antifreeze on the floor.
Does anyone have any idea where I should look next?? The truck runs fine and does not produce any white smoke.
Thanks in advance as I am stumped!
