Radiator season?

2 weeks ago my wife called on her cell phone, her van's radiator's plastic tank split. $650 later it was running again (including towing.)

Last week our other van's radiator did the same thing but closer to home. $250 - I did it. She was talking on her phone to her sister when it let loose.

This afternoon, just as I got that van finished my wife called - her daughter's Cherokee's radiator split! Now I have to go get it.

Could it be the cell phone radiation is breaking the plastic tanks?

Could be the light on the dash or the temp gauge not getting enough attention!

Define split: Did it develop a crack and end up in > 1 Piece? Or did it just jump out of the engine compartment and take off down the street? In that case, call a priest
