leaking upper rad hose at the engine side

Be sure to check your rad hoses for leaks, i guess there is a bad design in the ones in my truck(new ones now have 2 o rings instead of one.) wonder if i will have to pay deductable on my extended warentee to fix this bad design. very small leak, but I found it!!

LUCK IS WHERE OPPORTUNITY MEETS PREPARATION.

Yeah that's pretty common with the Job 1 trucks.

anything else "common" with job 1? I had all the requireed updates done, im just waiting for the rad to go, last i read it was due to low coolant issues due to leaks and people not checking thier coolant levels.

I wouldn't say when but if and to be honest, it's going to be hit and miss with your dealer. I don't think they're required to as the radiator does not fall under the powertrain warranty. That being said, my dealer put one on mine at 40k but would not cover the new hoses.

The only real common things were the radiators and radiator hoses. Everything else was fixed with updates.

I guess my chances are slim to get them to do the lower hose when they do the upper and call it one repair. my 100,000 5 year was up in march...crap. I have an extended warentee, but do not remember what my deductable is. I looked up defintion of an "o-ring" on wikipedia and it says it is a seal for sure! My plan covers seals, (ESP premium) so I may not have to pay unless my deductible is 50 or one hundred $. Thanks for the info.

Many times when a hose connection leaks, all that is needed is the hose clamp needs to be loosened off and lubed with soapy water and re-tightened.
As a good test measure the strap out of the hose clamp, then loosen and re-tighten and remeasure, many clamps be it coolant or the CAC will only tighten on the top 1/2 the clamp binds and does not slip to actually squeeze the bottom 1/2.
