    I started smelling coolant under the hood, so I brought it in before something blew. I didn't get specifics, but it is a confirmed radiator leak. Luckily no damage or mess from it like some unlucky others.

    If it is the radiator I am keeping a spreadsheet and would like

    • Stick or auto
    • Mileage
    • Last 8 of VIN
    • Build Date on LF door unless you know actual.
    Thanx

    Yes, double clamps. It's not a leaking hose though.

    Me too. Probably a pinhole leak. Pressure test will confirm this. Most dealers have it pretty much in stock, should be a 1 or 2 day turnaround.

    Sorry to hear Hubbs.

    These threads have me eye ball my temperature gauge all the time. I watch it more closely than the speedometer...lol

    Any word from SRT on the radiator issue? Anyone have an idea if this is resolved or a supplier issue?
