Looks like a head gasket issue I think. Need some help.
Just bought a 2007 Ford crewcab 6.0. 56000 miles. Didn't know to look for the coolant being low yet etc. First weekend towing and overheats and blows coolant. Very poor gas mileage and less power than my 06 model with 126000 miles and no repairs. I am assuming head gaskets. Goes in shop Monday for diagnosis. This vehicle is driven by my wife. I would prefer it to be fixed with the best options possible. Tows a fifth wheel trailer. This vehicle is under warranty and should be repaired with no cost to me I assume. It has the ESP ford warranty. Do you think they would install studs at the dealerships? Would they do an EGR delete or would I have to do that? This is just info. picked up by reading this forum. Would they do these things and still keep it under warranty? Will the truck get new head gaskets and be reliable? I have always driven fords for the most part. Would prefer to keep this vehicle. Just trying to make sure this repair will help it be more reliable. One other thing. Mileage was terrible on truck. My other 6.0L truck used about half the fuel on same trip. I am assuming because it needs to be repaired and will be better after repair or is that just wishful thinking? Anyone with EGR delete instructions please send to me or kits to buy for this.
