I have what was a mystery leak which was intermittent at the center of the truck only when parked for several days. I think I have it narrowed down to an upper radiator hose which has not been updated. I am picking up a new hose this week.

Make sure both upper and lower hoses have the white ends. If they don't that's probably where its leaking.

I just replaced my radiator about a week ago. It was leaking from the drivers side corner but it would not leak all the time.

As far as I know the only lower hose they updated was AC3Z-8286-A. IIRC when I got mine that was the one with the white end.
