Default Thermostat housings. I'll be replacing my 4th and on my 5th.

What gives ford? It's the same thing every time. Leaking seam. I'm tired of it. Does anyone else habe any tips to make them last longer? Motorcraft and Murray brand housings last roughly the same amount of time with me. This is honesty one of my least favorite things ford has ever allowed into production and not done an update on.

I'm on my fifth RBV and have never experienced this. Any consistency to where precisely it's leaking, type of RTV you're using, etc? There has to be a simple explanation for what you're experiencing.

Is it plastic? Aluminum? Any pics of this, you're not the first I've heard complain about this.
