How do you know your radiator is leaking?

I have a mysterious leak that I cannot find!!! I don't think it is the head gasket either ...

Mine is a Job 3, i am 100% about that.

Just for curiosity, where did they usually leak from?

Check your upper rad hose by the thermostat. They are prone to leak there. The new updated hose is white on the end by the thermostat.

my 2010 leaked after 5k miles of buying her... check lower driver side corner, the pressed together plastic/aluminum "Hecho en Mexico" bullsh*t tends to leak there.

I have a guy at a local radiator shop tearing apart my last take off radiator, he's going to experiment with it a while and try to fabricate aluminum tanks for it, 100% welded.

It's kind of a back burner project for him, but he said anywhere from $400-$500 should cover everything. He's pricing it low in exchange for letting him test the finished unit on my truck.

If it works out, I imagine there'd be a lot of interest in them. What do y'all think?

I don't have it off hand. I'll see if i have the receipt laying around.
When i drove the truck in, i already knew which tech was gonna work on it. He came over, blah blah blahed and mentioned it was all covered.
You might want to hit a few dealers and see what you come up w/.

I think there is TSB info in the 6.4 tech section.
