Our 01 F450 has been losing antifreeze for a few months now since I replaced a bunch of parts (reservoir and upper/lower rad hose included). I thought I fixed the leak (loose clamp on the return nipple on the res) but I was looking at it last week and saw anitfreeze dripping off the bottom of the radiator. Both the upper/lower rad hoses are dry which leads me to believe it's a hole in the radiator.
Anyways, today our driver called me and said the truck had overheated and the water was boiling over. Anybody have any ideas where the leak could be? Would a leak cause this and what damage could have possibly been done?
it has been pretty chilly the past couple weeks there was a slight spike in the outside temperature today though (high 65)...
