Foam at exhaust manifold

Hey Guys
Long time reader first time poster. My 06 had to have the engine replaced 1300 miles ago, its been decent so far. However, If the truck is cold, the exhaust manifolds leak. There is some kind of fluid that comes out between the block and the manifold that starts to foam up, like to the size of a quarter on three of the cylinders. Yes, foam! I know its leaking but what is the foam?! Not much smoke on start up, none at temp.... I took it to stealership, they looked at, couldn't provide an answer, and told me to run it. What would you do?

new engine??

May i ask why they replaced your engine on an 06? doesn't sound good to me that there is foam coming out. maybe some coolant leaking in to the cylinders, or some normal condensation. i dont know but hopefully someone will. why the new engine though?

Somthing in the oil cooler melted and starved the engine for oil. Truck runs good, but is still foaming. Dealer still refuses to work on it.

Is the engine painted blue or black? If its black its a reman who noes whats insides. If its blue its new. Either way if it isnt running right take it back to the dealer or if they cant(wont) fix it conntact ford or go to a different dealer.

It is a re-man engine. It does scare me a little, who knows what that block has been through. Your right, I'm taking it to another dealer this week. Thanks guys, I'll keep you posted.
