Need help!

Me personally don't drive 6.0 but I drive 7.3. My father in law's neighbor got 2004 f450/550 either one but got 6.0 with only 51k miles on it. He took it to Ford to have it look at because he told to the Ford that he leaking coolant through turbo and out of exhaust. Ford told them it will be $3,800 for just the parts not labor include. What would cause coolant go in the turbo and come out of the exhaust? Anyone know where good diesel shop in southern Illinois? I'm just trying to help him out and try to tell him to go to diesel shop not Ford dealership. Let me know. Thanks.

If he actually has coolant in his exhaust it can come from 1 of 2 places. 1 is a ruptured EGR cooler dumping coolant into the intake manifold and thus into the cylinders, since coolant isn't combustable it would be pushed out of the exhaust valves and into the exhaust system. This is the most likely cause.

2 is crack exhaust port runners in the heads that is allowing coolant to pour through the crack from the water jacket and into the exhaust runner post cylinder. If this is the case you will be needing at least one new head.

My first thought would be the EGR cooler is leaking. Doing a cooling system test would pinpoint the leak.

Alright thanks for the help. I will let them know. Sound like maybe the heads are cracked since parts alone is like $3,800!
