headstuds under warranty?

Well just a few days ago i ran my truck hard, easily the hardest its ever been run with several goes up to 120mph+ and when i finally got back to my house i checked under my hood and saw that it had blown a little (maybe an ounce?) coolant out of the overflow . So the next day on my way back from work i hit the go pedal again and ran it till about 3rd gear and when i checked it again a single drop of coolant over flowed. So my question is are my headgasket starting to go or am i just being overly paranoid? Ive only got about 7k miles left on my warranty so if there's anyway i could maybe get headstuds done under warranty even though ive been running a tuner (SCT livewire w/innovative extreme tunes, extreme race is what was run in my examples) id like to go ahead and do it. I was planning to buy me a vehicle lift this winter and do the headstuds, egr delete, and an fs 2500 and do it myself (cheaper to buy a lift and do it myself then pay someone) but if i can get it done under warranty it sure would save me a lot of money (im only 19 so moneys kinda scarce lol) Any thoughts?

You arn't puking verry much. Do you have the coolant at the minimum line?

Most shops are going to give you the run around the first time. Finding a good dealership is the key.

My truck is going in the shop in a week for gaskets and studs. My dealership agreed to install the studs if I buy them. I have a little over 9k left on the warranty.

Im not quite sure were the coolant level was at the time but after refueling it its at the minimum line now. Some how my local dealership knows i have a tuner even though i had it set for stock when i took it to them. Im thinking about trying the other big ford dealer in the area and see what they can do for me.

After you return to stock unhook your batteries with your headlights on. Let it sit for about 10 min. Reconnect the batteries. This will clear the KAM.

AAAAAAAAH Odessa! I had to go to Rogers Ford this summer for warranty work. Although they didn't say anything to me, I had a piece of paper in my truck noting that I have an after market exhaust on the truck, and that this COULD possibly void my warranty.

I checked the Oasis report, and there was nothing on it from them, except what was done to it. But I would not call them MOD friendly either!

Good luck

Bob~!

Not been to Sewell. I was in Big Spring, TX and JackA$$'es at the Ford Dealer in Big Spring were HORRIBLE, so Ford Towed my truck FREE of charge to Rogers. Sorry I couldn't help
