Oily water coming out of muffler
I have a 2004 6 liter and it has run great until the last couple of days. It has about 61k miles on it now, I've only owned it for three months though...
About three days ago I noticed a big puff of what looked like steam out of the tail pipe. it did it for a few minutes then cleared up. It did it again yesterday afternoon but persisted a lot longer. It looks like a bluish white smoke but evaporates quickly. Got home and checked oil, water, everything looked fine.
Did it again today but when I got home I noticed a black oily water pouring out of the muffler... The radiator fill tank was low too. put 4 liters of water back into it. So coolant is getting into the exhaust somehow. There is no water in the oil though that I can tell
The truck runs fine. no different than before.
It's off to the shop in the morning to get it looked at.
I'm glad i got that extended warranty!
