rad. hoses

i have 2008 f-250 and 2008 f-350. both trucks have had rad. replaced and 2-50 has had lower hose replaced. now 3-50 needs lower hose, is this going to be an ongoing problem with these trucks?

What coolant are you using. Not the Ford gold crap I hope.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

I believe there was an issue with the o-rings that are used with the rad hoses. Mine was just replaced a few days ago by Ford for free even though I'm out of warranty. Its not an issue with the hose its self, just the o-ring where the hose connects to the motor. At least that was the case with mine. If you just keep replacing the hose your not really fixing the problem...

Correct. The upper radiator hose has a TSB on it. I had mine replaced at 25k. It needs the updated hose with two o rings vs one. Ur dealer should know what it is.
