Hello All , I too have diesel in the coolant. I can see at the top of the degas bottle and plus can smell it a mile away.
This is a 2007 F-450, I did the XDP EGR Delete back in April and the truck was running much better until the past month or so.
I noticed coolant leaking and upon looking under the hood, It seemed to be coming out from the cap on degas bottle, So I changed the cap and it started doing it again. It seems the diesel is melting the rubber ring in the cap.
I would appreciate any help and guidance on this. I need this truck for work and can’t afford for it to break down.
Do I need to do a head gasket? Also after doing the delete kit, should I have ran a flash programmer? I never had the CEL come on so I didnt bother.
Thanks for any help you can give me! This site always seems to help me get back on the road
