coolent puking out of fill bottle.

Ok here we go, yesterday I pulled a bobcat about 50 miles and when I stopped I smelled anti-freeze. I opened the hood and the whole drivers side was wet. Today it started to smoke white, just a little bit.
Is the head gasket going bad or what?

Besides that this truck has a bad miss. I think it has a bad injecter but it don't throw any codes.

The only thing done to this truck is, airaid air box, punched out the DPF and cut out the muffler.

Head gasket, EGR cooler, Fan clutch...

Your truck shouldn't have a DPF on it, if it's an 04.

Since it's smoking, I would lean towards the EGR cooler as head gasket failures typically pressurize the cooling system and don't burn coolant. TYPICALLY.

Pull the EGR valve out and see if it's wet with coolant.

Hope this helps.

def start looking into the egr cooler , just for the record , do not make an egr cooler repair without doing the3 oil cooler kit as well which is usually the culprit of egr cooler failure

Jack the *** end up in the air and fire the truck up, see if there's coolant pumping into the EGR port.

do it with the valve out, so you can see the coolant if there is any.

more info!

Ok. I pulled the valve and started it, it blew white smoke out the hole and allmost died. I put the valve back in and took it for a drive,to warm it up. Got back and took the valve back out, it was a little wet(I think it might be diesel). The exaust smells like raw diesel. Injector sticking? The fill bottle has lost fleuid since yesterday. Maybe EGR and Injector.

Sometimes I hate the 6.0 -- so damn hard to troubleshoot. Could be an EGR issue, could be a head gasket issue, and you could also have an injector issue.

Bottom line is that you KNOW something ain't right and its probably not going to be an easy fix....I'd take it in to your mech for some troubleshooting.

And like BAH said, the 04's don't have a DPF.
