Water in Oil

2005 F350 all stock no tuner stock gauges, found a serious problem let a buddy of mine borrow my truck when he decided to bring it home it came on a roll back. he never told me anything was wrong and i wasn't home when truck was returned. Tried to start and batteries were dead checked the oil and had a milky look to it, also checked the degas canister and it was empty, pulled drain plug and got app. 1 QT of water before oil came out, drained all the oil and put in new. Truck cranks and idles fine with no smoke, My question is have I got Head gaskets problems or oil and egr cooler problems.

Sounds like your oil cooler ruptured leaking oil in to the coolant.

Ruptured oil cooler would put the oil in the coolant reservoir since the oil is under a high pressure than the cooling system. He found water in his oilpan.
I'm thinking it is probably head gaskets/cracked head.

I would say oil cooler too.

Never actually saw a 6.0 cavitate the front cover but I have heard of it. I'd be pulling the water pump too and checking there for erosion

Ive seen a few of them that havent cavitated BUT the water pump damaged/deformed from oil cooler being ruptured.

Only way to know for shure is pull the glow plugs and roll it over and see who spits water. If nobody does then it,s not the heads or gaskets. Ya need to look some wheres else then.


Lord I shall lead them to the water but I will not try to make them drink
