Thumbs down Puking??

Hello to all... I see alot of people talking about how their ford pickups are "puking" im sure this is a common question but what exactly is this? Not sure but i think my truck is doing it... pretty sure i got head gasket problems but my antifreeze resevoir is now filled with oil, and it was pushing out through the cap! as far as i can tell there is no water in the oil so not sure wats going on but any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Sounds like a head gasket to me too. I'd park the rig immediately and get it fixed because if the problem progresses and you get water in your oil then it could be catastrophic. Water makes a lousy lubricant for bearings :-)

I'm finishing up a head gasket on one of my other vehicles. My clue was the usual chocolate milkshake in my coolant reservoir but later found that I had water in my oil as well. I dodged a bullet on that one.

Good luck!

puking

It has gotten bad enough that the oil cooler is now pumping oil into the coolant. It needs an egr cooler, oil cooler and egr. Also a good flushing.

ok well then this of course leads to my next question. if i take this back for warranty work can they tell that a chip caused this? i took the chip out and took batt. cables off overnight then drove it for 2 days to reset the computer. is this something that only happens when its getting pushed to much with a chip? i also noticed sometimes it takes an excessively long time for the turbo to spool and make boost, i have talked to several people and found that this is common?!?!?!...any way to fix this? once again fellas i appreciate the help!! thanks!!!!

They can always tell depending on how knowledgable the tech is and whether they want to make an issue about it. Oil and EGR coolers account for a bunch of problems on the 6.0's. It should be covered by warranty without too much problem...

Hey StrokeTech,

Man all this talk about coolers really make me a little nervous cause I know that IT HAS TO BE EXPENSIVE to replace these things! Your thoughts on what I can do to extend the life of my EGR cooler, Oil cooler, & EGR valve? Any help would be MUCH appreciated!!

Jerry

Block off your exhaust from entering your EGR cooler.
