Leaking Coolant (no other symptoms)
I have a 6.0 PSD in my 2004 motorhome. I noticed a coolant leak on my garage floor, not bad but enough to take notice. I climbed under the vehicle and investigated. I found it coming from directly at the valve cover gasket for the right head. What could this be? I have no other symptoms. No oil in my degas bottle, no smoke. I am running the BPD EGR cooler. For cooling my oil I have a custom dual cooler setup as follows: BPD oil cooler in conjunction with a new stock (9 row) oil cooler. This custom setup is a remedy recommended by BPD. The problem was that after having replace the stock oil cooler with their air based oil cooler the resultant cooling proved inadequate for my motorhomes heavy cooling requirements. This fact was drawn out last summer when I had a sever overheating incident in the mountain passes of Colorado while towing my truck with the motorhome. On that trip I was running with just the newly installed BPD oil cooler. I saw oil temps pegged at 255 degrees a couple of times. After that I went to the dual oil cooler setup based on discussions with BPD (Bullet Proof Diesel) After installing the dual oil cooler setup, which consists of the new stock 9 row oil cooler and the addition of a BPD air oil cooler, things seamed fine on my return to Colorado later in the summer, very low temps at all times, I was very happy. but when I returned I noticed the coolant leak. Could the severe overheating have cracked a head? Is that why I am now seeing the coolant leak? Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.
