First, green coolant does not belong in your truck and generally speaking, it will not provide the protection from cavitation that your engine needs. Yes you should dump it out. Flush with tap and distilled water and replace with an ELC coolant with the CAT EC-1 rating. The revised coolant max level is now slightly below the min mark, any more than that and you will likely puke coolant. Coolant at the proper level, a new motorcraft cap, and a quick test of the coolant system is the route you need to take. You potentially have a busted egr cooler or bad head gaskets. You can google the test for 6.0 head gasket failure. You need a monitor to check your ect and eot deltas also. A monitor as ablolutely necessary when you own a 6.0. Read the stickies on monitoring. Keep us updated.
