Exclamation (coolant) need help!

I have a new 06 f-250 with about 8,000 miles . I installed a banks sixgun bundle love it.Took my truck to the dealer because I noticed coolant leaking out of the filler cap.The dealer told me it was a headgasket,but im not convinced.And that they wont cover it under warrany because they said the banks system caused it.My temp. stays between 188 and 196 sometimes 200 but then goes back down to about 194.The truck has never over heated.and I think the only time i lose coolant is when i run the truck hard even in stock
mode.


ANY ADVICE WOULD BE HELPFULL THANKS

I had an o4 with the same problem. my dealer warrented the head gaskets, but he sells banks stuff. If you get it fixed I would look into head studs. Also I now have an 06 that did the same thing the other day and they told me that it had to much coolant in it. they said that the tank is miss marked and that the min. level should actually be the max level. They took some coolant out and the problem hasn't occured again even with my power pup at 120hp and hard driving. Good Luck!

been dealing with this concern with 6.0 since day one ,after market equipment is an escape route some dealers use ,the problem exists even on stock trucks , if there is another dealer not to far from you call em up tell em your suituation ,they may take care of it for you ,we do em here no matter whats on them , to me its up to the tech ,do you want to make money or not is the way we look at it,some dealers do not want to fool with it though , and they have that option to decline it ,if the onl time it does it is when you get on it hard that is the first sign of headgaskets

My buddy has the same problem with his 04 6.0. The dealer said it was the cap and it was replaced twice with no repair. It only leaks when he gets on it. i still dont know if he got it fixed. Any help on the problem i would appreciate it also.

I thought that coolant puking was something you accepted on a 6.0

Hope if it is headgaskets you get it fixed under warranty!

Do you work for a ford dealer?If you do I'll bring my truck down there.
And have you herd of the overflow coolant tank to be marked wrong the min. is really suppose to be the max level.
