Ok have a couple questions
I have a 2005 f250 powerstroke straight pipe 4" down and out no muff no cat.
hyper pack tuner.
Just did egr cooler delete. put egr valve back in so i wouldn't get eng light. Never check if it would come on or not. Also did oil cooler at same time and replaced oil with T6 and coolant with elc. and refilled coolant to min line on bottle. i also have a sticker that ford put on the truck when the recall came out.
Ran the truck for a week 100 mile round trips 35 traffic and the rest just straight highway. and truck ran fine no coolant loss anywhere that i could see just a little bit around the top rad hose fitting. and a small drip from the filter side of the sinister coolant filter i put on.
So i put a small tune in truck and ran it for about 10 miles got into it a little bit
got home and noticed degas bottle puked. Cleaned it up and ran it on the weekend in the 90s here in florida 150 mile round trips two days in a row and no puke just noticed a small drop in coolant in degas bottle.
so do i fill to the min on bottle or the sticker ford put on.
also checked dtcs and no getting a glow plug code on number 5 but truck starts great no smoke that i can see. Shouldn't the truck miss a little at start with a bad glow plug. the code didn't come up until i tuned it, also, no dash light had to scan it once a week when i start the truck i scan for dtc codes. Do the dash lights even work in these trucks?
Any info would be great.
