Fingers Crossed

dropped the truck off at dealer this morning. I have been puking coolant thru the reservoir for a couple weeks now. Put truck back to stock couple days ago, put stock intake back on truck, only problem is still aftermarket exhaust with no cat at the moment. Tech pretty much knew instantly there had been a 'chip' of some sort on it, but told me that when Ford comes out as long as nothing is glaring about it having been chipped at one point I may be ok, plus the fact it has had nothing wrong with it at all up to this point. He told me if it is indeed head gaskets and Ford agrees to warranty it, he will put headstuds in for me if I bring them in. The service manager is my brother-in-law so hopefully all goes well. They were speaking to each other about making note of me being family, so hopefully that will help out as well. So.... Everyone keep their fingers crossed for me.

the Tech said they may have to take a picture or someone may come out to take pictures, etc? Probably after he says a guy came in with a truck with only 9k on it and already blew headgaskets, etc. Told him they are fine to come out, but until they can tell me exactly how my aftermarket exhaust would cause headgaskets to go, I wasn't going anywhere . He was more or less just setting me up for the worst I assume.

Everyone thinks that anyone who ownes a diesel programs or chips them. I get it all the time. I think what the dealer did is just say its been chipped and then you admitted to it without a battle. Just like with my tranny. The tech was telling me that I had a programmer on it and I had just pulled it off a couple of days ago. Well my truck hasn't been programmed for a long time and all that he was trying to do was to get me to say that I have a programmer on it.

well, crapola!! They are going to 'start' with the EGR Cooler and see where it gets us. Was hoping the heads were coming off!! I guess it may have to wait until this happens again down the road.

well, so after the first visit to the dealer they replaced the EGR Cooler, EGR Valve and the Oil Cooler (plus put that sweet looking sticker on the overflow bottle). All seemed fine for a week or so, thought I was smelling some more coolant so I cleaned up under the hood where the previous blow overs left the white mess everywhere. Drove for a week and now it is back to puking, not near as bad as before, but it is happening again. So, I have to go out of town first thing Monday morning, figured when I get back next week, I will go ahead and help out by removing any and all aftermarket wiring I have coming out of the cab so if they break down and go for the headgaskets I have at least done what I could to help out the situation. One less thing for them to worry about with lifting the cab off. He has already told me he would do headstuds for me if he tore it apart. SO, hopefully second time is the charm. and to be honest, I have actually been pretty tame with the truck. It was a few days after I got it back before I even put a tune on it. Have not really gotten on it but once or twice since I got it back, as I have been fighting my 'death wobble' issue.
