06 F350 with coolant spraying from degas bottle
Hey all, newbie here. Just bought an '06 F350 PS, mint condition with 30k miles and bone stock. Clean carfax and OASIS. Read extensively here on the boards BEFORE i bought (thanks all!) and pretty sure I know the answer to my question but looking for opinions on timing.
Have put about 1000 miles on it and am now noticing coolant residue around degas bottle (spray.) Dont have any aftermarket gauges but haven't noticed any change in coolant temps-pretty much half way up. Bottle level is actually a little low cold.
From my reading, probably egr cooler/head gasket going, but haven't seen anything odd from the exhaust, yet.
Sooooo, do I get it right in (under warranty) now? Will they just go ahead and start taking it apart with just this issue? Will they check the oil cooler as well? If not, what should I tell them to convince them to look at everything?
Thanks in advance....
