Twice. Stress point at mounting of the radiator was redesigned for cars following the realization of what was occurring. Looking down in the front could see little spots of fluid on passenger side. Was part of the three year warranty work, but now I’m just covered with Ford’s one year after doing the work guaranty.

For me it was the clutch cooler itself (located behind left rear wheel). Not the lines. Easy fix.
