odds are its an EGR cooler. Ive replaced quite a few and they are MUCH more common than headgaskets. are you having any major temp fluctuations on your gauge when the coolant is at the proper level??

if its not overheating, odds are its the EGR cooler. The EGR cooler is directly connected to the exhaust Y pipe, so the exhaust gas is being forced into the coolant, causing it to overpressurize and blow the coolant. A lot of the time they will blow white smoke after a start up as soon as the exhaust gets hot as well, but not all do......

my viewpoint on the chip doesnt matter, make sure to take it out and disconnect your battery cables for an hour or so!!!! Dont mention it to the dealer when you take it in...

6.0 head Gaskets

2005 ford F-350 Crew cab King Ranch, I just had head gaskets and other upgrades done by ford. Pulling a horse trailer and it puked everything out and began to run hot. Put more antifreeze in and it was steaming out the tail pipe and then began to free flow water out the tail pipe. I was shocked to see this with 29,000 miles on it. I was running superchip in economy and tow safe mode. I used heavy duty stop leak and filled system again. Made another 200 miles and to the ford dealership with little loss of fluid. Make sure you remove your chip and disconnedt your batteries for about an hour before taking to the dealership. Ford will give you hell over a chip, but still will fixed it under warranty. Only question I have is will it do it again?
