Kind of seems like the same frequency of failures that we saw in '08. Some of us had multiple failures, some never had a problem at all.

I really hope this is not a trend. Things happen and all the stuff flying around lately really does not change where I stand with my truck. It just pains me to see folks get inconvenienced out of money and time. In a perfect world things would be made better. The days of buying a refrigerator when you get married and keeping it for 30 years are over....

On edit, if you buy a weber grill it will last though. That's about the only thing I still have purchased in 1992.

I hear ya...I have had things that lasted with no issues when others have had problems with them. Even though people on the board are a minority of the people that own these trucks, It sure does seem like a trend. Like when these failures are happening ie. 23,000 miles or 32,000 miles etc. I think it would be interesting to know how many of these problems are happening state wide.

Maybe Tom has someone that can look this up?

Possibly, but I doubt it. Failure information is one of the things that Ford doesn't publish, and it's not easy to get. I might have more luck finding out whether or not the radiator supplier is the same though.

Replace the VIN on this link and look at the window sticker. The build date is bottom-center. Mine is 5/21/10

Great mine is in the "defective radiator dates" at 3/26/10.
Did have a leaky water pump (replaced under warranty) but no radiator leaks yet.

We're still using the same Weber grill we got in '86, nothing better for fixing steaks and burgers.

On the radiators, I really feel that Ford should step up and have a replacement campaign on the radiators in question.

OPTITRADER66 is starting off with a positive reputation.
I had been smelling antifreeze for a few weeks, always after driving the truck and then parking it there would be bad antifreeze smell ,no wet spots that I could find .
I took it to the dealership and they said it had a radiator leak and would have to replace the radiator. 28,000 miles. I've not had any luck on this truck it has been at dealer so many times it's depressing . New tires[worn out at 7,000 miles due to rear end], new rear end, new shocks,death wobble ,frontend alignment, 5 times for transmission issues,cracked exhaust pipe on the turbo, oil dipstick stuck in tube. the shocks and death wobble I finaly fixed out of pocket myself. Well at least ford gave me the extended 7 year 200,000 mile warranty, Looks like I might need it.
And one last thing that realy ticks me off is for service manager to say [you know these are all new and there is going to be bugs that have to be worked out .] BUT I DID NOT GET ANY DISCOUNT OFF OF TRUCK FOR IT BEING A TEST VEHICLE .FORD ADVERTISES IT AS THE MOST TESTED SUPER DUTY TRUCK EVER WITH OVER A MILLION MILES ACCUMALITIVE TESTING ..WHAT DID THEY TEST??????
SORRY I HAD TO VENT

We all need to vent from time to time. Luckily this radiator deal has not been as bad as the 2008 models.

Leaking radiator on 6.7L after 45,000 miles in 8 months????

So a little puddle showed up on the driveway when I got home from the July 4th parade the truck was in and this morning at the dealership, the mechanic says it is cracked exactly where the 6.4L cracked (tsb 11-6-6) I spoke to Ford and currently there is no tsb for the 6.7L. I have told the service writer to order the new one for replacement. Any suggestions? Any idea how many of these issues are out there? I love my truck but it is crazy to think of 45,000 highway miles unloaded cracked the radiator

I have replaced three 6.7L radiators so far. And I see probably far fewer trucks in my shop than Moe. And for those of you wondering, Ford has released a Customer Satisfaction Program. The program number is 12B35.

My guess is because they are mounted/supported by the sides (like holding you up by your ears), which is also the reservoirs. Everything else is supported by the main radiator. No bottom support what so ever. Bad design in my opinion.
