That's all good
It didn't happen to three of my past 6.0ls and none of our old fleet f450s all 200k+ miles of hard towing) and when I googled it didn't come up with near the number of results for the more well known issues of non bulletproof or even studded 6.0Ls etc. Curious to see how the XDP unit holds up long term though.
Consider yourself lucky?
Happened to two of my 6.0s, as well as my neighbors. Happened at 130k and 170k with mine and at 200k for my neighbor. The exact same thing happened on a 2002 F150 I had with 240k. I would have to imagine that the plastic and aluminum are expanding/contracting at different rates and after so many cycles, the seal is compromised.
As far as googling, I just typed in "radiator leak 6.0 powerstroke" and the first page is all examples of the plastic caps separating. Maybe google is messing with us?
