Exclamation Defective Radiator

Hey Y'all I have a 2014 F-350 6.7
Just noticed a small drip from radiator on drivers side, only 28K on truck
Need to ask is this a re-call or defective part.
I'm sure the dealer will try to say it's from a rock or something
Any advice would be appreciated
Thanks
OPTIMUS PRIME

Can you see where its coming from? Could be a rock, could be a bad radiator. Find the source and go from there.

I drive an 2012 F350 with 6.7 and had to have the radiator replaced several months ago. It began leaking around 110K miles. The dealership told me the radiators are just garbage in the 6.7's. Plastic tanks married to the core so no way to just replace the leaking tank which was on drivers side on mine. Wasn't cheap fix either.$1200 if I remember correctly and half day at the shop. It's the only real issue I've had with this truck though. I did just have the rotors and brakes replaced this morning at just shy of 130k miles.

Just a side note the 2012 F350 is my work truck not my own personal, but I am the only driver of this vehicle and solely responsible for keeping it up to snuff.

Default Super Duty Radiator

Mr.Pete - am new here but saw your thread about the radiator. I have a 2015 6.7 and just had mine replaced a month ago at 110K. Same thing with mine, cheap a** plastic end caps are the problem. The tech said he's had to replace a "few" of them because of this problem. $1200 plus is what it cost me. Have to remove grill and headlights to remove the radiator. Will I have to do this every 100K?? Ford should be responsible for the replacement, but they're not.

nvr4get, welcome to the group. I honestly can't say if this will have to replaced again at another 100k. I changed positions at work and rarely drive the 6.7 anymore, but I know it has close to 190K on the clock and so far the replacement radiator is holding ok. I agree that Ford dropped the ball with this set up and at my dealership, the commercial service writer said they have replace many of these not just a few. Good luck brother.
