06 Ford V6 explorer radiator problem.
I was wondering if anyone has their finger on the pulse of the gas engines also. My wife has a 06 Eddie Baurer Explorer V6 4x4. When I bought it the radiator was leaking. I installed a new radiator that lasted 3 months. It started leaking and I pulled it out and brought it back to the shop that I had bought it from. Both tanks were bowed and they warranteed it but said that the system was getting over pressurized and that the next one would not be warranty. I had also noticed that the thermostat housing had puked a little.I installed the second one with a new cap, thermostat and worm clamps on the hoses. It has been about 4 months and the new radiator has not blown yet but the system seems to build up quite a bit of pressure on the top radiator hose. It pukes water from under the radiator cap and at the thermostat housing. Can anyone find out why they are doing this please? Thanks JJ
