What does Ford Tech look for...blown head gasket
My trucks in for loosing coolant and fuel mileage. What are the sure signs a Ford Technician looks for when determining if the head gasket is blown? Right now they "think" its just a bad egr valve....but I don't want them to think...only 33 days left on my warranty. Is there a sure sign...white smoke? diesel in the antifreeze? oil in the antifreeze? etc. Lots of posts on this but nothing for certain.
