coolant leak driver side 2008 6.4

on the radiator driver side it is coming down the shroud . when i look up there is white stains under the top hose but not directly under it is 6 inches down. i just changed the oil 2 days ago then cleaned under the hood w degreaser so the white residue may be from that. it leaks directly onto the bar then to the ground . the coolant level is not low yet. i have 60k miles on it and called the dealer to see if it had been replaced or was covered under powertrain warranty. they said no. could the top hose leak and not hit till 6 inches down then only go behind the shroud ? is this a common problem? i looked on ebay and noticed that the radiator is 600 up so i hope it not to common as i wanted to put 300k plus on it

Re: coolant leak driver side 2008 6.4

The radiator itself, lower radiator hose, and upper radiator hose are all prone to leaking/failing on these trucks. It is very common.

Re: coolant leak driver side 2008 6.4

I had the same sort of problem, I got 69000 miles. It was my radiator, it was covered under warranty, but I had complained before about a leak that they couldn't find, so maybe that's why they covered it..

Re: coolant leak driver side 2008 6.4

The new upper and lower hoses have double orings for a better seal. First Ford found the uppers leaking at the t-stat housing, then they found the lowers leaking at the split between the two halfs of the lower hose center bottom of truck.

Re: coolant leak driver side 2008 6.4

Anyone know of any 6.4's running a custom radiator after the stock unit fails?

Re: coolant leak driver side 2008 6.4

mine was leaking at the lower connection to the water pump, when it leaks it drips onto track bar then to ground if it leaks bad enough... maybe check there? I just had to replace the o-ring but its a PITA to get to it there.
