coolant leak after coolant leak!
SO here is the scoop....
I bought my 2008 f250 6.4 back in June of 2012. 3 weeks into me owning it the radiator took a dump on me. I fixed that myself. Then in august another leak appeared off the back hose off the horizontal EGR cooler. I fixed that. Then the lower coolant hose coming off the thermostat housing started leaking cause it was the old style hose. I fixed that 2 months ago. Now my upper radiator hose is leaking! Is anyone else having these issues with consistant leaks poping up every couple months? I only have 84K miles on the truck as it sits.
I have done a couple mods since purchasing the truck..... H&S Mini Maxx, AFE CAI, 5" Diamond Eye DP back exhaust. I am running performance tune and getting 24-25 MPG highway at 75 MPH.
I did replace the coolant res cap with an aftermarket cap back when the radiator went. Could this be the cause of all my leaks?
