No leaks, it is my wife's truck and she wouldn't drive it anymore (said it was making her sick, I did notice the temps were almost redline on a trip climbing out of Phoenix to Flagstaff when unloaded). I am not kidding that the tech almost puked when he popped the radiator. The only time you could smell it was when you are sitting at a light or low speed. Besides, is anybody in here a chemist? Can you tell me for sure that the reaction isn't producing some weird combo of chemicals that is going to make me or someone in my family really sick?

About the other brand; I had an 07 2500 5.9l that spent 19 separate trips in the shop in 50,000 miles. I actually traded it in while it was on the rack getting a new tranny. Needless to say, I swore off Dodge and was never coming back. I heard about the new rig that could get 25mpg and my wife wanted a truck and I thought maybe my last Dodge was a fluke...5000 miles in and I am most definitely regretting my decision! I have a 2010 F150 (since new) with 112k on the odometer that doesn't know what the inside of a Ford Shop looks like.

That's it. My next new truck WILL NOT be a Ram if Chinese mess is in it!

Unfortunately my truck has the smell, like I drove through manure. Took it in (only 1500 miles on it) and told dealer MY TRUCK STINKS! They said it's a known issue with the hoses and gave me a loaner to use for the couple of days it takes to get the parts. According to them it is two hoses, but they of course do not stock them.

They also told me not to continue driving it as the smell can get into the upholstery permanently! ICK!!

Mine only had a faint odor when stopped so I think I'm OK, but it is a PITA issue with a new truck.

Mine is going back this week for the smell. Chrysler told them to just flush the coolant last time. It came back after a few days.
