60025 And the radiator is leaking

Yep. Out of warranty because the radiator is only good to 36,000 miles. It's leaking at the bottom corner on the passenger side.

That's three problems in 60,000 miles and I'm not impressed. The drive coupler is a style that has been used for years by various manufacturers including our Sprinter with 270,000 miles on the original. The EGR temp sensor failed just like the 6.4s were failing and now the radiator. $462 my cost for the radiator. At least the guibo is cheap.

2, 2007.5 LMM C5500 passenger buses each travelling 100,000 highway miles a year, as of December 2014, each over 700,000 miles.
1, 2006 C5500 passenger bus, with a reman engine at 425,024 miles on 28 Sep 2014.
1, 2013 Freightliner M2 chassis/Cummins 6.7 ISB passenger bus travelling 100000 mountain miles per year.
2, 2010 Ford F650 buses with Cummins engines, each at about 300,000 miles.
1, 2015 Ford Transit 11 passenger wagon with the Powerstroke 5 cyl engine traveling about 125,000 miles per year.
The bane of my existence: A 2006 Sprinter.
And a bunch of stupid minivans.

Well, going by autozone. That is pretty cheap for a radiator. But it would come with a lifetime warranty. Is it the end tank? If it is maybe a radiator shop can fix it. I would imagine that radiator is packed in there pretty tight though.

Tore into this today. I decided to pull the bumper cover and the grill separately just because there are so many clips to release. Other than that, it's pretty straight forward. I should have ordered the serpentine belt for it when I ordered the radiator since it's so easy to get to right now. I would have thought that Ford would require their dealers to stock things like belts, but apparently not.

Anyway, replacing the radiator isn't difficult, you just have a whole bunch of bolts to keep track of.
