Well I hope its not what I think it is......

As I was heading down I85 south towards Charlotte last friday night. I rolled on the throttle at 75 mph to pass a vehicle. I had a faint smell of coolant in the cab. So I checked the coolant level to see if had been using any coolant and to see if it had puked, it seem to be fine. Any possible verdicts? I call Ford to see if my truck was still under warranty. Well...... it expired Nov. 28Th

My guess is that did puke. It could be a easy fix as replace the Degas cap. With out knowing more info hard to say. Pull out your EGR valve look inside the block post up what you find.

DS,
I pulled the EGR valve and it does look a little wet. The valve it self had a small amount of water on it too. I called a local ford dealership that works on small and large diesels trucks. They told me it would run 2800-3000 to fix the EGR cooler and 5500 for head gaskets. They've lost thier minds. I may just do a EGR delete and new oil cooler while I've got her a part. Btw how hard is it to install head studs as long as I don't need HG's?

The EGR delete and oil cooler is only about 500 in parts if you do it yourself. You probably don't need headgaskets yet if you can catch it before you blow them.

Wow even our Ford dealers only charge about 2500 to do HG. I would delete the EGR and put in a new Oil Cooler and add some ELC Coolant. If you start turning wrenches on a Sat you should be done by Sun. No do not waist you time putting in head studs unless you go all the way and pull the heads off have them fluxed and machined.
