sorry to say you have a bad dealer. Just had the rad replaced on our 08 purchased in july 07. Our total cost (way to much) was $415.00. ford and the dealer absorbed the rest
of the cost under a after warranty repair program, The rad leak is a known issue call or better write ford and bi*** to your dealer who was to greedy to tell you other wise.
Love this 08 loaded ford f350 Ford had done more for use the dodge ever has.
Prior to this truck we had chrysler products for 15 plus years they wanted 700 plus for a 150 part....they wanted the fist without lube

I have an 08 f350 powerstroke with only 39k on it and my radiator is cracked too. I can see that several of you have been able to get ford to pay for it. I was wondering if you can tell me the names of some of these dealerships.

Was the valve replaced? they replaced my valve under warranty, then the radiator cracked, they made me pay for it. I wrote a very detailed letter, started and the Service Manager and worked my way up to the GM. Even went thru Sales because I had bought 7 vehicles from this dealership. The GM took my case up with Ford, I understand the dealership not covering everything but at the same time I feel they knew because of the faulty valve under recall and saying if not replaced would crack the radiator. Ford Motor wrote me a check back. Play the political roll and keep following up, mine took about 2 days before the GM Called saying Ford would cover it.

I ordered two Ford Super Duty's, an '08 F450 and an '08 F350 for my company. They were loaded to the hilt whereas I paid close to 120K for both. Since purchasing, I have gone through 5 radiators between the two and am still having issues with the current ones. Just a few month's ago, my F350's motor blew while driving on the highway. It had 130k miles on it, so no warranty. When I took it to the dealer, Earnhardt Ford (Arizona), they told me that there was fuel in the oil and two cylinders were toast. Needs new motor (18K). They said that the truck must not have been cared for properly even though we have change the oil every 3K miles from the beginning. I thought Ford might help me since I bought 2 more trucks that year totaling 4. Thought wrong! I have owned Ford vehicles my whole life, since a 1968 Shelby GT500KR Mustang and will never even look at a Ford anything again. I am trying to dump the F450 as soon as I can for a Dodge or Chevy. Does anyone know of any class action lawsuit levied against Ford for this travesty of design, so I can join it? I had the F350 sold at auction for 14K. Great investment for two years!

I would try and lemon law the thing!!! I have a buddy who had to do that with 2 of his trucks.

I have just turned over 100k on my '08 F250 with no real problems yet. I read all these comments from time to time and it worries me. I did a DPF delete with a 4" exhaust and put a cold air intake on it. Other than that I change the oil every 10k and add a quart of Lucas sythetic oil stabilizer. I also use Deisel Kleen cetane booster regularly and run the crap out of it most of the time. I average 18 to 19mpg, 14 to 15mpg pulling a 5000lb trailer.
If you look at how many are on the road compared to the amount of complaints, I would say most people got a good truck. I know I did!!!
