Oil in coolant...

So right when i'm ready to drop the dime to get injectors I've found another problem...

Truck has been running fine except for hard start and missing, so I kept assuming injectors issues.

I was doing my routine weekly fluid checks yesterday and the coolant is completely brown and chocolate milk looking...GREAT!!

Is it safe to assume that means oil cooler is busted? I cant think of anything else that would cause this...And what else did it screw up? Water Pump? Radiator maybe?

I'm also not sure how many days i've been driving with it like this...I usually just tap on the coolant tank and see it move around...it didnt move this time so I opened it up and seen the nastiness....OH, and I had just spent 120$ to switch to full-syn....

Any ideas?

flushing system

Not only will you need to change the oil cooler but you will need to flush both the cooling system and the oil system. Then replace the oil and coolant with fresh clean fluids. Check the condition of the coolant hoses if they feel mushy you may need to change them as well. Don.t forget to flush the heater core as well.

yep, what he said!!

And as the above stated, its a blown oil cooler. You need to get a water temp and oil temp gauge after you replace the oil cooler, also if you dont have your EGR deleted, now is the time.

labor varies from $110.00-$120.00 per hour depending on the dealer, they will charge 8-10 hours to R&R the oil cooler, plus the cost of the oil cooler rebuild kit.

well I talked to the dealer today and I cant get it in till next monday, so that means no ride during the holiday

Apparently my aftermarket warranty wont cover **** either, they said neither injectors or oil cooler is covered...guess i'm gonna have to really tear **** up to get my money's worth out of them!

I had just saved up for all new injectors too...guess i'll fix the oil cooler and rock the 7cylinder powerstroke for a while longer...

Buy the oil cooler "KIT" and not the oil cooler itself. It's a little bit of work changing the heat exchanger over the entire cooler - but it'll save you some ching.

Couple hundy if you're in Canada, if memory serves me rightly.
