I just got caught in the mishimoto deal of unloading old parts myself. Not a single one of those guys at support before or after buying the ORIGINAL radiator made any mention that it was an old version. Now im out of town with a truck who wont cool worth a damn towing 5000 lbs in 95 degree weather.

All I gotta do is choke up another 300 bucks and roll the dice again for an updated one.

Not at all pleased with how it’s been handled so far. I could have gotten the right tool for the job and done it once. Now Im ****ed.

Is mishimoto still on this site? I’ve pm them and it’s been crickets.

FWIW, the 3 Mishimoto radiators I went through (2 x version 1 and 1 x Version 2 - difference being the upper supports, aluminum vs. rubber) actually always cooled real well. As long as I kept replenishing the coolant that constantly leaked.

A few months into an XDP and so far so much better...

Anyone interested in some scrap aluminum?

Here's their current excuses:

Hi @HeavyAssault ,

I received this customer's PM on Friday and forwarded their concerns to our customer service team. Our customer service team is not in the office over the weekend and we were off for the Labor Day Holiday.

The customer purchased the radiator off of Ebay, not from us directly, but we are doing what we can to help them. As I've said previously, the F2D-03 radiator is designed for light-duty/unmodified trucks and is not an outdated or old-stock product. We've reached out to our distributors to remove mentions of "performance" benefits from marketing information, but we cannot control how every seller communicates. Customer service should be getting back to this customer shortly.

Thanks,
-Steve

WTF????

Ok. Then I wait.

After I bought it I was told it was an OEM replacement. OEM is not light duty. This truck is bone stock other than oil cooler which actually takes more heat load off.

By the way, I’m mostly irritated at the circumstances since I thought I read awesome things about mishimoto and NEEDED a new radiator before a big haul.

Okay....I think they need to make things more complicated.

Support contacted me. Looks like I’m on the hook for another 300 bucks if I want to roll the dice with the heavier unit. I don’t. Hopefully they will refund the cost of this because I fee like a huge idiot for thinking I was making a good decision and now they’ve admitted over email that the unit is not sufficient or to OEM standards. So...hope my engine holds out because they’ve left me in a huge lurch.

The radiator in my 2015 F350 (yes...6.7) started to leak a bit around the lower drivers side around 58,xxx miles. I was not a happy campter. I replaced it with another Ford OEM radiator. After reading all the posts, I thought I was going to regret not going to the Mishmoto. However, the truck now as 185,xxx miles, and the Ford OEM radiator is hanging in there (no leaks)...knock on wood.

Good luck!

Actually, I've never heard of anyone having a problem with the OEM replacement. Business partner had one in his '13 for ~100k and no issues. I should have gone that way, but then look at all the fun I've had dealing with leaks...

So, any one got a good idea on what to do with 3 large leaking aluminum radiators?
