Was wondering if anyone else had a cracked radiator like mine, 2004 Forester XT 95,000 miles.
It appears as though the weight of the fan assembly /road vibration has caused a stress fracture on the top side of the screw boss.
[screw boss being pulled down]
It has been spraying out coolant through the crack.
I forgot to take a picture of the crack prior to putting a temporary patch over the crack [JB weld]. I don't expect the patch to hold long, just want to get a few more miles in while I await shipment of the replacement radiator.
Is this a common problem?
