My third radiator went out at 68000 miles, dealer started to refuse warranty because the radiator was replaced at 51000 miles and they stated it only had a 12000 mile component warranty, I brought up the lack of the venturi and asked for them to get some help from Ford. The warranty manager stepped in and said that they would make Ford pay, got the radiator and venturi tube for no charge. So far so good.
