I had my original radiator start leaking about 7500 miles and it took three dealerships to figure out it was a crack. I now have 19000 miles and it has been less than 1000 miles with the new radiator and it now has a leak too!!!! I hope they figure this out, I cant afford to be low on coolant, I pull too hard to have this problem.

Bars stop leak has a BIG bottle for BIG engines, I used the whole bolltle in my truck about 2 weeks ago and ,so far so good! Will keep everyone updated though.

Mine only leaks when it is warmed up/under pressure.....I would say in the past week I have lost about a half of a QUART....It is more annoying than anything. I will take it in when I get some spare time. I am thinking about selling the truck and going back to a 6.0L!!!!!!
