Angry More 6.0 issues...

So I have a 2004 f250 ccsb lariat, I just replaced 2 bad injectors and when I got it back I had no heat at idle...the coolant resevoir is over filled so is puking a little. Could be other issues with that though. I have no heat until about 1500 rpm. I have noticed that i am running warmer than normal, not hot necessarily, just warmer. I do not have gauges in it, because I've spent 6k in parts to fix this bad boy this year. Doesn't leave me much for extras! If I have to do HG's again, it's gone... I have done them twice...first time I put in black onyx and didnt deck the heads, my mistake. It has egr delete, blue spring upgrade, and of course ARP's. I'm am lost in what to do, oil cooler again?? I wanna catch this ASAP so I don't worsen the situation, thanks for your help.

Not going to lie man I check check ur degas bottle for pressure that def sounds like head gaskets. No heat at idle cause its low in coolant but puking coolant from degas bottle is from pressure from the combustion chamber sounds like gaskets

Ughh I know it does, I don't want it to be. My only question was the fact that my coolant is overfilled, which I've head causes puking, and if my oil cooler is blocked I can have no heat at idle and coolant pressure too right? I mean come on just got done doing heads 1500 miles ago and am not running a tuner nor have I romped on it...

Ok, so I was checking out all my systems in the beast, and realized that I am not getting much, if any at all, coolant though the main hose on top. There hasnt been any puking, other than a little moisture around the cap, even after WOT. This is more than likely why I am running warm, and fan stays on constantly. Would this be caused by failing water pump?? I mean it is an 04...

Is the vacuum tube hooked up to the black heater valve on top of the passenger valve cover? If your truck's coolant system was working before you had only injectors worked on, there is no reason to have something happen at this service. To get to the injectors on the passenger side there is no reason to to touch the coolant hoses. For the driver's side, just the small hoses are pulled and the degas pulled out of the way, unless they got carried away removing things. It is possible your water pump is starting to go, but unless your luck is really bad, having it happen at this point is suspect.

Yep I had no issues, and the one time I let the dealer do my work it comes back with another issue...I asked the tech who did it and he said he'd look into it, but when I had the truck idling no coolant was coming out of the top tube, then when I raised the rpms it spurted out intermittently. I do have the vacuum lines hooked up, and my a/c lines were extremely cold when I had tried to have the heat goin too?? Just unplugged a/c for now. When the truck is warming up as I drive, the coolant temp gauge almost fluctuates with shift points...

Ok I figured, now that I have finally figured out my problems I would let everyone know. I'm quite upset about it actually...I went ahead and replaced the thermostat and the water pump, neither of which were in bad condition. It got me stumped. So I went next in line and finally decided to get a new oil cooler and go that route. Upon tearing the truck down I noticed that the coolant line from the degas to the intake drained minimal amounts of coolant, I took a hose to it and low and behold it was completely occluded. I finally got it out and it appears to be a rubber cap that fits perfectly over the bottom of the "Y" piece that goes to the heater core.
My assumption was that when Fird fixed my injector issues they per a cap on/in the lines to prevent coolant backflip into the heads while they were working, they tell me they didn't touch a single part of the coolant system when the replaced my injectors...how in the hell would you get to the valve covers then?! Needless to say, the blockage ended up blowing my oil cooler anyway...I have oil in my coolant...finishing that up today or tomorrow. I suppose that's what I get for letting someone who doesn't care work on my truck...
