Checkin Cooler issues lookin for suggestions
I just bought this 2006 F250 with 121,000 miles. Been busy installing a turnover gooseneck hitch and find out about the Coolant system problems. Runs good, got sticktion issues, but I've replaced the just replaced 15-40 motorcraft with Rotella 10-30 T5. and expect this to improve.
The truck was cleaned up under the hood, but under the cap of the radiator burp bag, the ring under the cap had the white crusty stuff trapped, which make me concerned about EGR coolant temps.
I've put 160 miles on it since I bought it and the ride from the dealer was 65 hyw miles alone, and there is still a reasonable amount of coolant in the burp bag so it its leaking it, I'm not seeing a loss nor have I notice white smoke from the exhuast, so I'm wondering if there is other ways to verify if there is problem.
Been looking at Edge Insight, but cant figure out if its designed to monitor all the necessary factors out the box (plug into an exsisting portal), or if you have to purchase additional probes, and install them in the sensitive areas.
I been planning to do the flushing and replacement of coolant Ford coolant with ELC, but I didnt want to have to buy $1800 of replacement kit with coolers etc, just hoping to clean things up, and us the exisiting system, if possible.
What do you think?
