Question about Ford Explorer
First thing is first what year make and model of vehicle is it. It actually sounds like you may have more then one problem. Next thing is are you using the correct mix ratio and type of coolant. Basically the orange/red. I see you say the radiator water, should be coolant correct? Is it still over heating are your fans coming on. Is the coolant gauge appear to warm up and stay midrange? Is your coolant reservoir cap busted? Are your lines or fittings dry rotted or leaking? Does it have a radiator precooler? Is it over serviced? Is your thermostat in stalled correctly ands it working right? Is your "water pump" leaking?

You may need to ask AAA to put a radiator pressure tester on the resevoir bottle and pump it up to operating pressure(Pressure cap rating) and see if it over pressurises while it is running at operating temp,rev engine up and down and watch what the testers pressure readings do,it should move up and down in sync with the water pump.If the pressure keeps building i would have to believe that combustion chamber gases are over pressurising your cooling system.Also test the pressure cap is functioning within factory specs.

Hello Ranger Joe, eight months and two radiators is very uncommon. Question, Have you visually confirmed the leak in the radiators or is the leak near the hose connections? Replacing the radiator, cap, water pump, & the thermostat leaves only two others, the hoses and the engine block/heads. Far fitched will be something or somebody poking holes in the radiator.
