Verified

A coolant leak from the radiator can be caused by a defective thermostat bypass. This can cause pressure spikes in the cooling system, which leads to radiator failure. The thermostat assembly and radiator should be replaced.

    WAS TOLD DURING A REGULAR OIL AND FUEL FILTER CHANGE THAT I HAD A LEAK IN MY RADIATOR AND IT WOULD BE &1600.00 TO REPLACE IT . ASKED WHERE THE LEAK WAS AND WAS TOLD IN A SEAM AND THAT WAS A COMMON PROBLEM. I SAID IF IT A COMMON PROBLEM WHY NO RECALL AND SERVICE MANAGER SAID THAT IT WAS NOT A SAFETY ISSUE. NATURALLY I CAME UN-GLUED AND HE SAID HE WOULD CHECK WITH FORD TO SEE IF THEY COULD HELP OUT SOME--- WHICH I TOLD HIM THEY OUGHT TO REPLACE AT CLOSE TO NOTHING. HE ASKED IF I HAD EXTENDED SERVICE WARRANTY AND I TOLD HIM THAT A 2.5 YEAR OLD TRUCK SHOULD NOT NEED ONE ---- BUT I HAD BEEN THINKING ABOUT GETTING ONE BECAUSE OF PROBLEMS I HAVE HEARD ABOUT WITH THE TURBO GOING OUT AROUND 50,000 MILES. I'M SCHEDULED TO HAVE IT REPLACED THURSDAY AND THEY SHOULD KNOW SOMETHING BY THEN --- IF FORD WILL STEP UP AND DO THE RIGHT THING

    Could not keep coolant in engine while pressurized, so I drove with the cap loose till I could get it to Ford. They replaced the Radiator and coolant. Then my EGR valve went. Not covered by my extended warranty, so they wanted $995.00 to replace, I purchased online for $167 motorcraft part. Put in myself. Stilll, would not run right. Now the Diesel Particulate Filter and sensor are bad. 82,000 miles. Chevrolet here I come, or Dodge. Ford Sucks.
