Coolant problems...

Well, I noticed this morning my coolant was low while checking my oil and air filter. Added about a gallon and went for a test drive around town, came home and the darn thing was empty again... Its been raining here for three days, so I dont know exactly where its leaking from. I do have a tuner, but its one of Matts low HP Superchips... How much money is it gunna take to fix this problem either it be the head gasket or radiator? Im out of warrenty with tuner and DPF delete... Do I need to get out of this truck or get the problem fixed??? Sorry so long boys! TIA!

Finally found out where its leaking is!!! Coming from front drivers side radiator. That would be the leaky rad right.... I sure hope so, because I aint got the patience to deal with shot head gaskets at the moment.... What yall think?

sounds like you need a new radiator

better put that dpf back on and stock tune or you may need to pay for that 1000 dollar radiator out of your pocket
