Went to ford shop and showed them this and tried to buy a thermostat bypass and they said it is only on diesel ours is gasoline , there is no smoke coming from tail pipe, coolent is mixing into transmission . We had a warranty on radiator , so we swapped out and got a new one and have not installed it yet, truck is just sitting waiting on us to put the new one on . We are afraid it is just gonna happen again . What a waste !!! Still paying on truck and can't drive it and even when we go through this again , our plan is to haul it to the ford place and have it flushed out( transmission) again . There has got to be something we can do to keep this from happening again . We were happy to find that we could replace the thermostat bypass , but when ford place told us that was only in diesel ones we are stumped again

the only way coolant can get in there is an internal damaged radiator. i wish you good luck with it and hope that cures the problem//

Thank you , don't have a lot of faith in it because the other radiator only lasted two weeks , we don't understand why the one that came with the truck when we bought the truck in February lasted til May and was driven to Iowa and back before it went bad . Then to find all these 108 people reporting the same issue . But on diesel , I see that even though the truck is an 09 it was manufactured in 10/08 ..... Someone has to know how to get around this problem of radiator failure..... On the gasoline engine...please dear GOD ..... Come up with a solution for this problem . Can't feel good about selling our problems to someone else. Just want to fix it
