    I blew the upper radiator hose last week with only 70 miles on my H/C . Anyone else having the same problem?

    Sounds like a bad hose.

    I have seen them go on brand new inboard boats with little to no hours on them. It happens. Kinda sucks with the anti freeze mess but sometimes things just fail. I had one go bad on a Trans AM GTA the day after I took it home.

    That sucks! Hope you didn't have too much trouble finding a replacement with the Hellcat engine being so new.

    No the hose and clamp still together, but the spring was missing from hose. Dealer replaced hose and clamps

    Nope dealer had one overnighted ,but did have to wait another day for SRT engineers to tell the tech how to remove all the air from cooling system. Alls fine now but still a little gun shy

    Sorry to hear about the hose failure Bro. No Cat yet, so I haven't seen anything fail or operate yet. Glad you were able to get it fixed in a timely manner.

    Don't be shy! Your baby is under warranty. Get those break in miles done and then kick it into serious fun mode!!! I am at 1,600 miles and just a little down in oil. No other engine issues. ;)

    Do they not have technical service manuals for this car yet? I'm surprised that a dealer would have to ask SRT how to do this vs. just reading the appropriate portion of the service manual (I'm being serious).

    I was told any problem was to be reported to Srt before performing any repairs and it took a special vacuum pump to remove all the air and replace coolant. I guess in other words SRT engineers want to know all and any problems reported
