Coolant Leak!!!

OK guys I have searched this and I am pretty sure its the radiator from what the other guys have said here. I have a 2011 job 1 F-250 4x4 CCSB, I purchased the truck used with 49,000 mi about 3 months ago it now has 51,500 mi and I have noticed a very small leak on the driver side frame rail which seems to be coming from radiator. I had a 2008 6.4 which had the same problem and the radiator was replaced with around the same amount of miles due to a TSB about the crappy plastic radiator. Does the same TSB exist for this crappy radiator, I am obviously going to take it to ford and try to have it warrantied I just would like to have some ammunition before I go and try to get charged $1900 for a radiator replacement (per other users on the site). Let me know if anyone has had this problem and the best way to approach it.....

Went to the dealer today and the warranty on the radiator ended at 50,000mi my truck has 51,200mi so they gave me ford's customer service number. After being on the phone for 1.5 hrs I was informed that it would not be covered under warranty. Is there anyone else that I can call. I've seen someone on another forum that is a customer service rep for ford and has helped forum members get service. I don't know if he is a member on here but if someone has any info it would certainly be appreciated. I don't really want to come out of pocket $1900 for replacing this crappy plastic ended radiator that should have never been put there in the first place.

Thanks Guys

Still having issues with radiators....sad. I would think it would be part of the power train warranty, considering your powertrain has to have it to operate. I guess you could keep running it and melt the engine down and then get it replaced under your power train warranty. I bought this new ford thinking they would have their act together, from reading the numerous posts on sites they seem to be a bunch of chicken.... You know what when it comes to warranty items. I hope I'm wrong.

I am really trying to be as patient as possible with FOMOCO I had a 2008 that the HPFP ingested itself in another state, it took them 8 weeks to totally replace the entire fuel system, longblock and heads with 56k mi. They did not re-imburse me for the $300 towing bill or the $1500 worth of rental cars but they did do the right thing. I have a PM into Cory now so I am really trying to keep my faith in this product that was well over $50k. I sold my 2008 for the wonderful new totally ford designed and throughly tested scorpion engine. The truck has been great with the exception of this cheap a$$ radiator. Lets see how long it takes Cory to reply.

Is there any high quality aftermarket solution? My 08 had the leaking radiator so I traded it in. I would hate to think my 63K truck has the same crappy engineering.

Is the Ford factory warranty transferable? At 15K, 30K or 49K if its not transferable its not covered. I was told that the Factory warranty was not but the extended warranty was transferable.

As far as I know the factory warranty is the factory warranty, doesn't matter who owns it. I know the extended warranty has to be transferred over but I am not aware if the 5yr/100k warranty has to be transferred. Oddly enough whatever was leaking has stopped which I'm sure has been due to the unseasonably cool weather. A rep from ford care called me this afternoon so I will call back in the AM and see whats what.
