RADIATOR LEAK

I HAVE 2008 JOB 2 6.4. TRUCK HAS 45000 MILES ON IT AND JUST STARTED LEAKING FROM TOP OF RADIATOR. FORD SAYS NOT COVERED BY ENGINE WARR. BEST PRICE I HAVE FOUND ON NEW RADIATOR IS 850. CAN THESE RADIATORS BE FIXED OR MUST THEY BE REPLACED? WILL TRUCK CONTINUE TO EAT RADIATORS??? THANKS

I had my 08 6.4 radiator replaced under warranty. The Ford service guy told me their had been some issues with the radiators in the 6.4. Wonder if they have some sort of service bulletin out on that? I think mine was under the first build date. I bought mine in Feb 07.

Ford will replace if thermostats are the cause. Otherwise you are stuck. Mine cost $1100 to have done.

just had mine replaced. $1500. check 1-800-radiators. Heard they have good prices if you want to DIY instead of going thru the stealership.
