Had that done about 30,000km ago. It appears as though the rads are separating at the seams.

This is very ironic, I just had my 4th radiator go bad yesterday on my job#1 too!!! I went to Ford and they said they would cover it since I bought the extended 200,000 mile engine warranty, I have 41,000 miles. Wow I have averaged a little better than 10,000 miles per radiator!!! It is going into the shop Monday morning. Mine is leaking from passenger side seam. Ford really needs to get a handle on this.

Well...

The update is that after about 10 phone calls with the dealer and 2 with Ford Canada, they have agreed to cover the rad and labour. just goes to show ya that you have to make some noise to get any kind of service these days.

In response to Julian, the truck has 93,000km (roughly 60,000 miles).

Glad to see they are taking care of it, I doubt this is a cheap radiator to replace.

Isn't there a lemon law that states they have to keep fixing it beyond warranty if you can show you had problems during warranty.

how comforting to know that they are putting the same cheap *** radiator back in to fix the problem. I dont buy the venturi fix. I believe as someone else put it they are stressing and breaking. I certainly am looking forward to BUYing a aftermarket radiator if one ever comes available.
