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.

try to run the water pump without hoses, and add water in the 'in' side, if is powers out the other side, then it's fine. how is your water/coolant mix?

I have had this happen with my ranger. Changed everything I could to try to fix the over heating. It turned out that I had a small leak in my head gasket and it was allowing exsaust gas to go into the cooling system witch was over pressurizing it. Also the air from the exsaust will heat up much faster than liquid making your thermostat to read hot and will not be able to blow hot air in the cab because there is no liquid going to the heater core. This happened to me when my blet came off and I tryed to make it home. If you had it over heat for a long peirod of time it may have ripped the head gasket.

They can be a real challenge to find, especially if the leak is buried somewhere that you really can't see. Then after driving around, the fan and wind spread the coolant all over , making it even more difficult to locate the source. 1st try 'stop leak' which can be purchased at parts stores, you might get lucky and it will fix the problem. Sounds like a good idea to replace the radiator if it's rusty. You could have a leak at the head gasket, or even a freeze out plug on the block. A couple of suggestions to help locate it: pick up a small mirror at a parts store, the kind that folds and extends. Get the car up in the air so you have plenty of room underneath to move around, and securely supported so the car won't fall on you. Clean off any drips or visible coolant. Start the car and crawl around with your mirror and a good flashlight, and wait for evidence of coolant to appear. It's a matter of patience and poking around to find it. Good luck.
