Mine was just repaired too, same leak and location it sounds like. If you are out of Waranty, then contact Crystal on this board. she can probably help lower your out of pocket costs.

I just bought my 2011 F350 6.7 with 54K on it. Drove it home, around 900 miles from the Frod dealer and another 500 of my own miles. Now the coolant level is low and it smells like coolant. Nothing on the ground yet. It checked out fine at the dealer too.

Local dealer says most likely it will need the radiator changed, around $1000+.

I did not buy the ESP yet. According to the ESP call center I can buy it any time. It was quoted at $3800 for the prem 4 year 60K.


I just want to get it fixed so I can start using it. I tow in the summer so the sooner the better.

Is there any place under the truck I should look at for a leak to spot it?

I do like the truck, it is worth fixing hands down.

Drives side bottom corner of the primary (back) radiator. Look in the wheel well, you will see it right by the petcock.

I will find a pic

Great pic. I will check it tonight.

That looks like the same place my 6.4 leaked. I think it was about half way up.

Leif Johnson is a real good Dealership here in Austin. Tops every year in sales and service. They treat me good there. Maybe because i'm on my 3rd F250 and my wife buys from them to.

Failed coolant cap

I looked over the lower corners of my radiators and they both look slightly wet. The truck is real dirty from the winter roads around here so it is kind of hard to tell a leak from melt off.

No major leak to speak of. Not like the pictures above.

The interesting part of this is that I removed the coolant cap to test the cap for pressure. The cap looks like new. When I put pressure on it to 16psi it held just fine. Then I put another pump on it and the pressure kept going up and not regulating. It went to over 20psi then popped real loud and went to 16psi. Now it regulates at 16psi like it should.

Now I need to top the coolant and see if the radiator, hoses, and fittings survived.

My 2008 6.4L at 130K miles held no pressure on the cap at all. The radiator was changed about 6 months before I found the bad coolant cap. The shop put the same failed cap back on with the new radiator. I replaced the cap and it had no problems after that. I know the current owner and he has had no trouble with it in the 15K he has driven the truck.

Ford cap was about $19.
Stant cap from Advanced is about $5. (these are always out of stock in my area)

I plan to test or replace the coolant cap when I do the fuel filters every other oil change.

Strange. My radiator fluid is red. First time I have really noticed that. Before my radiator started leaking it turned dark orange in color. That was caused by the contamination to the fluid by the air and by the casting sand in the motor.

If the core is good, I wonder if a good radiator shop can build and weld on custom aluminum tanks in place of the plastic ones. Even if the price ended up being as much as a new unit from Ford, I would pay for the peace of mind knowing that the plastic was replaced by welded aluminum.
