2012 6.7 upper radiator hose collapsed
I have a 2012 6.7 that has a upper radiator hose collapsing after driving the truck and parking it overnight. I have 33K on the odometer. Took it to the dealer two days ago, they checked it and were able to verify the condition. Sent out condition to the ford tech hotline, ford sent back saying they are working on a fix, but telling people this is normal operating condition for now, possible tsb to come. Anyone else come across this issue. I am starting to get concerned about problems this might cause down the road.
I already had a primary water pump replaced at 15k, which at that time my hose was also collapsing, was so bad that it made cracks on the hose, had them replace the hose out of pocket expense since ford would not cover under warranty since it did not fail yet, per what the service adviser told me.
The pump failed on the shaft seal... But i will leave that for another thread as i don't want to hi jack my own thread lol.
