Ford sais I have to pay for 6.4 faults

Ok had my truck inspected by my local dealer and he said radiator core is leaking, both rad hoses are the old style single I ring and degas bottle is the old style as well, and said my PCM needs the new update flash. All of these things are updates that ford did to decrease the problems and saying I have to pay for the updates. To me they sound like recalls but dealer said no. Checked oasis report and radiator was replaced but not the thermostats which is ridiculous. Service manager have me a number to call and complain about these problems and be persistent about them and he said they have paid for the repairs so he said for me to try. I can't remember where I read it but someone posted on a forum about calling a number and they may help with repairs. This sound familiar? Anything else I can do?

Yes but these are updated items and to me sounds just like a recall and the truck was in the shop when it was user warranty and they didn't change these items

The reflash was a voluntary customer service bulletin. You should have gotten a letter if your truck was part of it

Radiator was only covered during the warranty period if it leaked

But the truck still has the old reservoir and old single oring hoses. I just bought the truck 2 weeks ago.

Also now there are better options than OEM radiators (moshimoto or alradco) if you cant get it replaced under warranty.

Ok so when rad was replaced they did not replace the thermostats! I'm trying to build a case that thermostats weren't replaced, PCM wasn't flashed, hoses and reservoir wasn't updated all of which contribute to my faulty radiator and leaking 1st gen hoses.
