06 losing coolant, high ECT then it drops
ok, so heres what i have going on....this past summer i wanted to do a coolant flush just because. Along with the coolant flush i replaced the water pump, upper and lower radiator hoses, degas bottle and cap, and heater core. Had no problems with the truck just wanted to get rid of the ford coolant and replace parts associated with the coolant. Forgot to mention i have a coolant filtration kit. I drove the truck on approx 1800 miles in a week. I have noticed that when i start the truck and at times throughout the day it will blow white smoke out the exhaust. I have no problems with the driveability of the truck at all. a few times on my road trip the ECT temp on my Edge insight was over 230 degrees and reached up to 245. i was driving in a snow storm so i couldnt just hit the breaks and pull off the side of the road. After a few seconds it would gradually make its way back to normal (195-205ish). The fan does work, i can hear it kick on at about 215 degrees. When i made it home i had to add slightly over a gallon of coolant. Im not dripping coolant anywhere and it has me stumped. Forgot to mention the truck IS studed and has an EGR delete. Any insight or opinions would be greatly appreciated. I dont want to mess up my truck or anything as i have a lot of money wrapped up in it. Thanks!
