You gotta help me with this!
My truck 05 6.0 FX4 has been in my garage since I bought it about three weeks ago. It ran great when I brought it home and a couple of trips after that.
I parked it one evening after a short trip. The next morning I noticed the bottom radiator hose blew off the radiator and spewed coolant and oil on the ground. I suspected the oil cooler or orings were bad after research. I replaced the cooler with a Dorman cooler. And put it all back together.
I changed the oil, filter , fuel filters, and insured orings and tightness were good. I attempted to start it and it finally started. But only for about 30 sec. I went back in and found the ipr valve was ganked up. I replaced it and tried to start it. It did start! I revved it a couple of times and now my "check gauge" warning popped up. I checked the oil and it didn't even register on the stick,WTF!!! I put 15 qts in it. So I added another qt 1/2 and the stick was at "min" level I started I again and the oil psi was at 0. It idled ok but I slowly pushed the pedal and it would start missing. I checked the oil again and it didn't register again. I drained the radiator to see if the oil went Into the cooling system and no oil! Where in the f@$& did it go!
