Unhappy it turnd out o be HG's after all

Well The Ford tech is an idiot!! I took The truck To a different mechanic and he asked some guestions and said he didn't care what the Ford guys say the head gaskets are fried. So Monday It is going to the shop for new HG's It already has studs. The guy that owned it before me ran a Edge so mabe that is why the heads blew again. So will I make more power with new HGs it Hauls a** now @ 30 if I punch it I will do a burn out but I only get 13 mph and I puke coolant all over when I get on it.

Headgaskets are blown. The coolant puke is the telltale sign of that.

And the reason is more than likely ****ty coolant. I don't see anything in your sig about coolant preventative measures so you really need to do some searching on that and get to it. I see the EGR delete but this could have been in the works for awhile. Make sure to try and get another oil cooler while he's there.

It does have ELC in it. Don't how it was flushed.

Was the oil cooler rebuilt or replaced the last time? Also were the heads sent out to the machine shop to be checked for cracks and milled for flatness? If the heads weren't true to begin with ARP's won't make a difference.

I ask the guy I bought the truck from and he said he didn't see any piking so he did not have them machined. He said that all that was done 2 years ago.

sounds like BS to me and it seems the oil cooler wasnt replaced either.... flush the cooling system with VC9 before the work it done. Rebuild the oil cooler, get the heads machined and throw black onyx gaskets in when you do the studs again. make sure you refill with ELC and put a coolant filter on there.

These issues reoccurring means that **** was halfassed when it was done the first time, do it right this time

I am with you if ya do it right the first time you don't have to do it twice. I was happy to find this truck because a Ford master tech owned it. Now I have found I don't think much of the Ford techs.

They're not all like that! Many give great advice and know what they're doing.
