smell of coolant on steep inclines?
I have an 04 f250 and had arp headstuds, black onyx gaskets, egr delete, rebuilt oil cooler, decked heads, uprgraded turbo oil tube and coolant filtration installed about 5k miles ago after losing a headgasket. I have recently moved and live on a fairly steep road. I have noticed while driving unloaded up a steep grade I get a smell of coolant coming into the cab from the vents. My truck is not puking like it did prior to the repairs, but I have noticed a small amount of coolant residue running around the outside edge of the degas bottle which seems to be coming from the cap(which is fairly new).
I have towed my 34' toyhauler several times and have never experienced puking problems(and has never overheated), and am assuming my head gaskets are still good. I don't have guages yet so I have not checked EOT and ECT temps. Wondering if any of you have an idea what might be going on, oil cooler again?
