So when I started the truck Wednesday night I got celebrated ran the code and it was P0125 low coolant.

    I don't care for stop leak. It may plug the hole in the radiator but no telling what else it will plug up....

    Radiator shop, have them repair yours or build a new one. There is always the aftermarket aluminum route.

    Ya,not a hard job by any means,just need containers for the flush and then get rid of it. Time consuming!

    Sounds like a good start! How long do you plan on keeping the truck? If a year or two you pick up a cheap new radiator swap it out and call it a day. Not a hard job at all. If you plan on keeping I would look into a oem or a aluminum upgrade.

    Worst idea ever. Never ever use stop leak. It does more harm than good. Radiators are pretty much all the same now adays.... I have an aftermarket in my taco, I have oe in my tundra....

    Did realize you were in denver. Contact performance radiators. We use them at work, we give customers the choice of oe or performance. Quality aftermarket parts
