Rant, radiator leak!
Been working like a dog since Christmas. Finally get 4 days off to go snowboarding. Head to my place in VT w Ranger 350 miles from home...
Fire it up this morning in -15 degree weather to find the radiator letting go a steady stream of coolant. Truck made it to the dealer w some coolant left in the overflow.
Thankfully the ford warranty provided a car so my get away isnt totally ruined. I made it to the mountain by 10:30. I have to tip my hat to Formula Ford in Rutland how awesome and accommodating they are. That said, my courtesy car is a frigging roller skate fusion hybrid, and we're getting 5" of snow tonight, argh!
All that work maintaining a truck in good working order to be left w a frigging fusion, in snow, because of a bad seal on the radiator side tank... I've had this same failure in my explorer at 75k. The ranger has 60 now...
I'm very thankful of Formula Ford though....
