Coolant leaking

Hello guys, I new on here from Spring, TX. I searched coolant leaks and found good info. I have an 08' that is leaking coolant that appears to be from the upper radiator hose. I have the extended warranty. Do you think this is something that would be covered? Or should I just buy what I'm guessing is the upper radiator hose and from what I have researched here the T-housing oring(s)? Does the T-housing need to be replaced or just o-rings? I figure if it is not that expensive it would beat loosing my truck for a week+. Thanks,

I had that happen to mine also and dealer replaced o rings and hose, says they only will replace all of it. I have extended warranty thru ford but these parts were not covered. I *****ed so much to the service manager about it not being covered that they refunded my money for the charge on the hose and o rings. It is not really clear in the wording on the warranty paperwork but either way, my point to them was they knew of a problem with the factory o ring set up and it shouldnt be something you have to pay for!
Fixed, done..

I gotta give the guys at Gullo Ford in Conroe, TX a good review. Put my truck in the shop Saturday at 8am and got a call the following Monday to tell me my truck was ready at 9am. 1 working day in the shop. Warrantied, no questions asked. They replace the t-stat and hoses. I stopped by a dealer close to my house and talked to the service rep and could feel a screw job coming so off to Gullo I went and glad I did.
