Is anyone having problems with the Mishimoto radiators?

I'm on my 2nd mishimoto rad!! The first one started leaking with only 5000 miles on it. It was leaking from the fins. I was going through a gallon to 2 gallons of coolant a day. Luckily there is a lifetime warranty and got it replaced and the new one has 2000 miles on it and started leaking the other day! Don't know if it's a problem with the truck or if it's a common problem with these things.

Hey guys,

This issue appears to be an isolated incident, we have numerous pleased customers with successful installs (and miles) on this particular radiator. We are working diligently to help this customer alleviate the issue and investigate the cause of the repetitive leaking, for all we know this could be vehicle related. Either way, we will be getting to the bottom of the issue as soon as possible.

OP- I believe our CSR team has been in touch with you. I will be following up with a PM shortly to be sure we are effectively working towards a solution.

Thanks

I believe the 2nd one is leaking from the fins as well! The shop that does all the work on my truck is pulling it apart again tonight to make sure. And this will be my last mishimoto rad! I need something that can handle the power!

No fun at all, see if they can grab a picture would love to see the location in the core for curiosity as usual.

Nice truck!! I'm on my second one now and it only has 1500 miles on it and I'm pretty sure the fins are leaking! The first mishimoto rad did the same thing with 5000 miles on it!
