RADIATORS

I have 2 coworkers with ford trucks. One has a1994 F-150 300-6 the other has 1994 E-250 300-6 both of them are on there 3rd or 4th rad. Both have alot of miles over 200,000 maybe this is the reason. Seems excessive to us. Is this to be exspected with this amount of miles or some other underlining problem. My Ranger has 200,000 plus and I just replaced the rad. HELP IF YOU CAN THX David

Lol no I'm not saying all of them are pos... just that's the problem with them... unlike the old copper and brass radiators you can't solder or braze these when they lea around the tank... u can job weld it tho... my 1 core radiator was fine then it leaked around the transfer cooler line... the top one... then the passenger side tank started leaking where the cores went into it

So I said screw it and bought a new one... even tho barsleaks woulda fixed it... I just don't want that gunk in my engine
