i did the arp head studs, egr delete, and sinister black onyx head gaskets around a year ago. now i have had a steady problem increase with my coolant system. i have alot of pressure in the coolant system and it causes many problems.
1. truck will not crank in the mornings. when it finaly does it blows out white smoke like crazy for a few minutes then stops.
2. before truck is cranked, but after a few tires at cranking it, it is dripping water from under the hood.
3. i have no heat coming from the heater regardless if its on low or high.
4. truck looses lots of water and has to be replaced every few days.
with those problems stated, i have no engine codes, no issues running, no power loss, nothing. just its hard to start in the morning. after it runs for awhile it wont act up again any during that day. until the next morning when it does not want to start.
i am pretty sure its the black onyx head gaskets that are the problem. what are some more signs of bad head gaskets. and do these problems sound like a bad head gasket???
