Awww Man!

So the second wave of blizzard has passed thru Missouri. As im driving my heater quits blowing hot air, then i start seeing my oil temp and coolant temp begin to rise a little. I figured maybe after all the slush and foot of snow i had got some packed under it............Well i drove back to my house and i was getting pretty warm quickly and i poppped the hood.......No more antifreeze, which is where my no heat was coming from.

The best part....looks like antifreeze was pouring out of my intercooler. So if thats the case, do I go back with OEM or should i look into getting an aftermarket one? antifreeze didnt appear to have oil in it either, so i think my oil cooler is still good.

Aftermarket all the way. I do not typically care for Banks products but they have a nice intercooler and their price is SURPRISINGLY a little less than others.

passenger side of the truck. Sure looked like it was coming from there to me..

Ive found in the stickies AFE, SPearco and NO Limit. I dont have much experience with the cooling systems of these trucks, so im learning as I go. I did the EGR delete and thats as close to messing with the antifreeze as i got. Its going to my uncles shop when i get a chance, just wanted some ideas or recommendations as to what to replace while doing this. I just want a quality product

If this is the issue then am i going to be able to justify the 1200 to 1500 dollar price tag on these things. Wow they are proud lf them. OEM ive found for around 500 bucks. From what im reading the benefits are minimal? Seems like if i went back with an OEM and spent the extra on the new intercooler piping would be just as benefical. Does that sound stupid.

I think you mean radiator, not intercooler.

Isnt the intercooler the closest the the grille. LIke i said before im a rook at this part of the truck for sure
this is on a 2009 F250 by the way if i didnt mention that before.

Radiator behind the intercooler then? I was freezing my butt off so i didnt get to look around all that much. So im sure im mistaken... What are my options on replacement radiators, OEM or aftermarket. I dont really care I just want something good

The radiators were a known problem in the earlier models, (job 1's) I wouldn't doubt that is what it is even thought yours is an 09'
