Puking coolant with studs.

I got my studs put in this past summer and until two days ago everything was fine. I towed a 14000lb 5th wheel approx. 180 miles and when I got home the first thing I checked was under the hood. I puked out about half gallon or so of coolant out of the degas bottle.

I know its possible to blow the gaskets with the studs intalled but could it be the egr going bad?

truck has 38000 miles on the clock.

well, I'm no diesel tech, but I thought I read somewhere that the egr doesn't open up when the truck has a load on it, allowing fresh air to burn instead of recirculated. I'd probably start with a degas cap. When the EGR is closed you're going to run at higher temps and you might've just overflowed.

Go on ebay - buy a Ford Oil Cooler Kit - the kit serial numbers end in CA - its not the entire oil cooler - just the gaskets, o-rings and heat exchanger (the heat exchanger is what goes bad ) - spend the extra $200 and ahve it installed when the HG's and studs are done. Shoudlnt cost you much more because the mechanic is right there for the HG's and studs. If you buy the part form Ford - its like $549 or something rediculous .
