I知 in the same situation with my radiator leaking however since my warranty expired they are charging me 1,100 bucks to fix the issue. I have done all the recalls because ford does all my service maintenance and I can稚 believe I知 being treated this way. I have been a loyal Ford customer with 7 purchases in 10 years but they are willing to do nothing. Were can we as a group send emails and complain about this issue so maybe they will issue a recall on the Radiator?

Jubilant-I'm shocked about how you are being treated. I think it's time to bring out the big guns and meet the owner of that dealership and explain to him your situation. Show him all the forum responses to the radiator recall. Under the current economy, I'm sure he doesn't want to loose you as a loyal customer, including all of your referrals. BTW, who is your dealership?

The Dealer is Waldorf Ford in Maryland, they said they did talk to him and gave me a discount but I'm still not satisfied. I think Ford needs to recognize this is an issue and resolve it. I知 still working on the dealership so I will post the outcome. If anyone has any additional information please share.

Call the number that is on the recall notice. The leak is a manufature defect should not have to pay for it.

Just picked up my "08 from my dealer. Leak problem solved. 100% covered by Ford. Truck is running great right now. No current problems. I'll contribute to this forum in the future if anything comes up.

Well I went to the dealer today to get the reprogram done. They said Ford has stopped them from doing them because of problems they are having after it is done. Has anyone heard what these problems are or has anyone else not been able to get it done.

I have not had any problems out of my truck since the update. I have only driven it around 300 miles. I have noticed a significant increase in pulling power at a low rpm. I haven't took any long trips on the interstate yet.

I'm taking my F350, 6.4L diesel to the dealer on Friday for the reprograming and the backflow preventer on the radiator and will report on the same day. I have 11500 miles on the truck with numerous trips with my fifth wheel with no problems. So far, so good.

I just checked my mpg the old fashioned way today after getting the update two weeks ago. My mpg was 17.4 no towing, taking off very carefully and not exceeding 65mph. That is up from 13.5.
I asked the guys at the service department why Ford didn't do it a long time ago. They said "We just got the program".

I got my programing done two days ago. So far the computer is saying I am getting worse mileage. I filled up last night and will be checking it by hand. It does seem to have a little more power but I will not be testing that much while I am watching the mileage under normal conditions.
