I Purchased A 1997 ford f-150 June 11, 2001 From Two Rivers Cheverolet On 2/04/02 A Hole Was Patched In The Radiator Of The Vehicle. On 9/02/02 The Radiator Had Another Hole In It And This Time Had To Be Replaced. On 9/27/02 The Heater Core Began Leaking And Had To Be Replaced. At That Time I Had Taken The Vehical Back To The Radiator Specialist And He Sugguested That The Vehical Might Have Electryolisis, Said Take The Vehicale To The ford . I Did They Replaced The Heater Core And I Had Suggested To The Service Technian That It Could Have Electroylisis. The Service Tech. Said That, That Was Not Very Possible. On 12/03/02 I Took The Vehicle Back To The Same ford Garage For Leaking Of Antifreeze, They Said That They Could Not Find Any Leaks And Sent Me On My Way. On 3/10/03 I Was On The Other Side Of The Country And The Heater Core Went Again I Took It To A Local ford Garage In The Area That I Was In And They Replace The Heater Core Again. On 5/21/03 The Heater Core Went Again At This Time I Was In A Different Part Of The Country And At Every ford Garage I Went To I Told The Story To The Service Advisor. The Heater Core Was Replaced. On 10/29/03 The Heater Core Again Failed And I Took It Back The Same ford Garage That I Last Had It At. Again They Replaced The Heater Core And This Time Told Me That There Was Electryolisis In The Vehicale. They Replace Heater Core. On7/12/04 The Heater Core Went Again I Took The Vehicle Back To The Same ford Garage And They Said That They Could Replace The Heater Core And This Time The Radiator Had A Hole In It Again. They Also Said That The Problem Would Proably Not Go Away And There Was Nothing Else That They Could Do For Me. I Took It To A Radiator Specialist And They Told Me If They Had Had The Vehicale When The Problem First Started That They Would Have Been Able To Fix It. But Now Its Been Going On Took Long And There Was A Slim Chance That They Would Be Able To Fix Problem. Now With No Help From The (ford).*ak
