04 Issues thinking headgasket
Welp things aren't looking so bright for the 6.0 as of late. While back I did new oil cooler, coolant flush, ELC coolant replaced and blocked off the egr cooler. So I drove the truck back to D/FW (250 miles) where it sat for 3 weeks. Coolant level fine at this point.
Anyways, I drive 5 miles to work just fine then drive back home and check the coolant level... It's higher than before in the degas. FRICK@!#@!$#@!
Next day, same routine but coolant level looks higher than yesterday (Not puking at this point but doesn't have much room left in the degas) Double FRICK &*$#%^@!
Guessing Headgaskets are an issue now and thoughts or advice?
Truck drives fine just concerns me with elevating coolant level. Also, I pop the cap off and it has some steam like stuff coming out. No oil in coolant that I can tell.
