So I'm already on my second Mishimoto radiator and it went out again...
The core of the radiators I've been receiving seem to be defective, they'll leak under pressure. There is nothing wrong with the truck, and it's ran flawlessly for a while, this is the only thing that keeps bugging me.
On top of all of this, Mishimoto won't even cover the labor for the POS radiators they keep sending me, so it just keeps putting me in the hole. I use my truck for work, and the longer it's down, the more money it costs me. I paid $950 for their radiator back in January from a vendor in NC because it was when they still had their shortages. I am absolutely not impressed, and I if this next one goes out again, I'm going back to stock.
Everyone made it seem like a Mishimoto radiator was the top of the line and what not, however it's done nothing but cause me headaches.
Maybe I've just got the bad batch, who knows, but does anyone else have any experience they can chime in about these aluminum wonders?
I sent them a video of the issue, which the link is below.
If you guys look very carefully, coolant seeps out of the radiator if it goes under pressure.
PS. I tow a single car hauler on occasions, the truck doesn't get abused much, just the occasional showing off that these monsters are capable of.
