Leaky Radiator Problem 6.4

Talked to my Ford Dealer today, seems they have indentified the cause of for the radiator failures. It requires a thermostat change, then the problem is solved. Anyone else heard from their dealer on this?

i had the same issue. my radiator wasnt covered under warranty anymore since i was past the 36k mile mark. but since i needed new thermostats, they covered the radiator under causal damage and it was all replaced and didnt cost me a penny. you should get the same thing.

Haven't heard this. My radiator was replaced a couple years ago. There was a service bulletin that installed a Tee fitting that was supposed to fix the leak issue...or at least I thought so.

technically it doesnt need the thermostats replaced..but if your are past 36k miles, the thermostats have to be replaced to have it covered under warranty.
