Radiator leaks

Asked by Jan 05, 2015 at 04:02 PM about the 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2004 Dodge 1500 that over the past year we have put six yes SIX radiators in
and the sixth one is now leaking. Two of them came from Advanced Auto Parts and the
last four have come from NAPA. They all developed leaks within the finns and no one
seems to have an answer as to why this keeps happening.

are you sure that that is where the leak or is it in the water pum p have youchecked for crackes in the water pump

The water pump was replaced about a year ago and every time this happens we pressure test the system and you can see the fluid coming out of the fins for the radiator. Not on the edge but 2 or more inches into the fins

I've replaced ours 3xs in 4 years also wondering whats going on
