    B5 Blue Blue and I are collecting information on vehicles that have had the radiators replaced due to leaks.

    cereal killer will get this information to Dodge. The hope is that it may help Dodge find a pattern/trend that will help (manufacturing defect etc. etc.)

    PM either B5 Blue or SRT_HC_707 with the following information and we will add you to the list.

    • Year
    • Engine
    • Trans
    • Mileage
    • Last 8 of VIN
    • Build date from LF door
    • Any additional information that may help (i.e tank separated, coolant temp, how was it driven up to issue, towed etc.)
    So far the members I'm aware of that have had radiators replaced are
    CatBurghlr
    ChallCat
    Carolyn
    Nycsrt
    Zookeeper93

    If you folks wouldn't mind providing us the information we will compile it in a spreadsheet for Dodge... Did we miss anybody?

    Thanks for getting us this information. We do have a spreadsheet for confirmed radiator replacements. Private message either B5 Blue or SRT_HC_707 as mentioned above as this will make sure we see it.

    Nycsrt Thanks. If you have your VIN handy (now or later) post last 8 digits here or PM it to me or @B5Blue and we will get it added.

    Glad you got your cat back on the road! Thanks again!

    This is what happens when a tech dose not use the right tool to pull the coolant system down and refill.You get an air pocket and when it bleeds off bam low coolant

    Me thinks they didn't use a vacuum bleeder. One would think a dealer tech. would do this by the book. This is what drives me nuts. Some techs. are just outstanding. Others not so much (I guess like everything in life). I want the dude that knows what he is doing and gives a shat working on my car.
