Marc,don't want to go against any of you suggestions,but ,When mine went out I drove it from New Jersy to B.c. on the west coast and the only overheating I had was up long hills .and I was pulling my 15k 5'er.
used only 4 gallons of anti freeze the whole trip.

Go against?? nah man, this is completely open for discussion, post away!!! i know as well it could still be headgaskets, but since he just had an EGR cooler fail, i have seen oil cooler passeges get plugged afterwards causing coolant restrictions, which causes a purge from the cap since the water up there boils, even though the motor temp stays consistant....

tell them this, a buddy of yours is a tech, and he said that the EGR cooler should be checked agian, and it should be driven watching EOT (engine oil temp) and ECT(engine coolant temp)......if the two are not withing 25 degrees of each other after full warm up, the oil cooler is plugged.....I hate hearing about heads coming off trucks because a lot of them were not the problem to begin with.....I would say 60% of the time dealers do headgaskets, it wasnt the problem....
