04 f250 6.0 egr cooler problem

I have a 04 f250 superduty, started running a little funny and a little white smoke. had to get fuel, so i checked all the fluids, noticed the coolant was about 1 gal low, topped it off and drove home, approx 25 miles. Went to restart after shutting it down, just clicked a couple of times then fired, but ran real rough. noticed the coolant again was low, didnt drive it again, towed to ford dealer, they said that the egr cooler leaked into the intake and now they have a 6k bill to fix. injectors, turbo, egr cooler. has anyone had something simillar to this, not quite sure why i would have to replace the turbo even if coolant ran thru it, seems like you would just have to clean everything and replace the egr cooler that failed. please help..... thanks.

I would get a second opinion. If they aren't trying to sell you a oil cooler with the EGR cooler they don't know there 6OHs very well.

I would say oil cooler, egr cooler, and possibly EGR valve. Injectors could be damaged if engine hydrolocked and enough coolant made it past the rings and into the oil. I've had at least 4 trucks in the last year with EGR coolers bad enough to hydrolock the engine and I didnt have to replace a turbo or an injector on any of the 4. I would have them clean the vanes on the turbo while they had it off.

I agree. As far as injectors go, I've had my share of a few that required a couple or two, to get running. One truck I remember in particular required SIX of eight injectors replaced after I replaced both coolers. Those of you who disbelieve, this is how I came to the conclusion. After replacing both coolers, changing the engine oil and filter, and refilling with fresh coolant, the engine wouldn't start (I guess six out of eight holes not firing would certainly cause this). After verifying all data were where they needed to be (FICM_M, FICM_SYNC, SYNC and ICP psi/volts readings etc.), I tried swapping the FICM with my tester, and it still wouldn't fire. I ran the buzz test, and only heard clicks from two injectors. Having a hard time believing that six injectors could fail all at once, I even reran the buzz test multiple times with my "noid light" tool plugged into each different injector connector (including the two functioning injectors' connectors) with each test. Sure enough, replacing those six, fixed the truck. I guess injectors don't like coolant very much.
