Please help.

I've got a 2004 6.0 in my yard blowing coolant out of exhaust. I have oil cooler and egr delete on hand but the degas bottle cap smell like gun powder (to me). Would i get and accurate gaskets reading in the condition its in now with a gauge? Or could the smell just be part of egr or oil cooler issue?

Blowing coolant out the exhaust is the surest sign of a damaged EGR cooler, most often caused by heat stress from a clogged oil cooler. If you had a monitor on, you would have probably seen the ECT/EOT delta very high, but not always. FIx it before it cost you a head removal.

I checked my truck using a stopper with tubing installed in the degass bottle. Make sure pressure is off system(Critical). Remove Cap and install the stopper with the tube. Place the end of the tube in a bottle of water bigger the better. Start the engine. If you have bubbles you have a leak. Reach in and unplug the VGT and see if the bubble reduce/stop if they do it is most likely just your EGR Cooler. if not you likely also have a head gasket leak. Plug the VGT back in and see if the bubbles increase/start again. Remember to be extremly careful around a running engine. If you have someone to rev the engine a bit before you unplug the turbo it helps see a bigger differance. If no change is seen you likely only have a head gasket leak. But that doesn't lead to much coolant in the exhaust just white smoke.

Hope that helps

I'm kinda following along here. Do you mean a sink stopper?

To the OP, you need to figure this out ASAP, coolant in the exhaust (regardless of why) means it's in the cylinder, which can hydro-lock the motor and make a HUGE mess of things.

No Labratory kind. Like you use in beakers. . I don't rember the size but is was around 1" 1/2 I think. I used tyvek tubing but anyplace that has the stoppers should have hose. Should only be 15-20 bucks or so for everything max.

EDIT: I think the stopper was a #8 but you need to verify and it was tygon tubing I used but any will work. You can buy barbs to put in the stopper or just pass the tubing right through.
