coolant loss and tea kettle sound.
well,...i gues it is time.
first i would like to say that this forum has been very helpfull and i did do a lot searching
Things i,ve done in the past year is a coolant flush/backflush - restore only -cat ecl ec1 coolant - coolant filter - edge insight - SCT custom tune -fuelpressure meter & EGT meter.Car runs good and powerfull.
Delta,s ECT 182/189 @65 miles. 6-7 i ordered a new stat & housing - blue spring cause i,ve noticed a fuel drop to 41 on w.o.t.
last weeks i,ve noticed my coolant drops just a little bit i have added about a quart 3 weeks ago.Today i was on the german highways as you know there are no speed limits so i hammered it and after 10 minutes there it was...tea kettle sound when i was on the pedal,...when i got off it,..the sound was gone.So did a few bursts and sure it kept whistling.
Opened the hood and it was a good 1 inch below the minimum mark
(ps i filled up to minimum mark)
what a bad time,...i need my car to drive to Spain in 5 weeks and back to the Netherlands 2625 miles round trip,...and do it twice.so 5250 miles.
i do not think my precious ford will make it,now she,s sick.
I could use some help.
1 remove egr cooler,...just weld it up and knock the scoop out or a IPR gen2 kit?
2 i think my delta,s are fine should i need a new oil cooler while i am in there?
3 How can i test if my HG are not leaking and be sure it is a leaking egr only?
There are parts like Updated Hpop fitting - turbo downpipe - and all kind of o-rings and gaskets that i might need.
i want her up and running reliable again...(well it does for now,but you know what i mean)
before you throw parts at me,consider that parts are 2.2 times as expensive over here,...a friggin motorcraft oil filter goes for 39 euro,s elc coolant 160 euro,s...
Luckely i am mechanicly enclined so i do not have to pay the stealership.
sorry for the long post,..but i could need some help.
