Has anyone checked on the price of the kit, or the instructions to install? I agree with biz4two about getting this done on my own dime to avoid having problems 400 miles from home. If its an easy install I will do it myself rather than have the dealer do it.

WOW, all this fuss and I just found out the kit cost $8.26.

The job only calls for .3 labor hours so this seems like a no-brainer!! Anyone out there have a copy of the instructions? Any special tools needed or anything like that?

Less than $10 and a half hour of time to make my radiator worry free? Count me in.

I humbly stand corrected. The information I got was that a senior tech was correcting ALL the trucks on the dealer's lot and I misinterpreted that to mean all trucks. Slow? maybe...falliblle? surely.. well intentioned..certainly.

Just got off the phone with service dept where I bought my truck, they said after checking about installing the venturi kit even at my expense they can't do it until Ford releases them for sale. I guess I tryed to save them having to maybe install a radiator at more $$$$. so be it!!!

Bowstring:

I had the venturi gasket kit installed this morning on my job 1 #1 2008 PSD. Ford of Canada would not pay for it but would be at my expense. Since I do a lot of trailer towing I didn't want a radiator breakdown on the road so I paid for the kit and installation.

The venturi kit is 8C3Z 88379 B and the Canadian list is $5.50 and net cost is $4.40. The Service instruction 08T01 states .3 hour to install for unsold Ford PSD's in their lots. My charge was .5 hour of labor. Go figure. I had the technician inspect the radiator for leaks at the tank ends during the venturi installation. He advised me that the rad had no signs of leaks.

I dropped my truck off at the dealer last week with a leaking radiator and to get a reflash. They were fixing all the unsold truck radiators on the lot. They were replacing the radiator and putting in the venturi kit.

The venturi kit is some type of Tee in the degas line that prevents too much pressure in the radiators causing them to leak. This is Fords determination of the cause of the radiator failure. That's all I know.

Took my truck (job 1) in for service about 2 weeks ago, and my SA noticed that my radiator was leaking when I got there. Perfect timing I guess. They put in a new radiator and the venturi kit. Hopefully this doesn't happen again, especially on a long haul with the boat.

Well, I believe it has been established that the subect Ford Special Service Instruction is not a recall nor does it apply to all 2008 Ford Diesels. Because of that the subjetc of the thread is very misleading. Maybe something along the lines of "Ford SSI 08T01 - Possible radiator issues on some 6.4 diesels"

It covers vehicles built from Job #1 through May 15, 2008. I know that isnt ALL 2008 diesels but its gotta be pretty close since they cut production off in June/July.

I dont see how this Tee can hurt anything. I did it myself in 10 minutes.

Does anyone know why 5/15/08 is the cut off? Did Ford start installing these Tee's at the factory after 5/15?
