What's in my Coolant? With pic!-imageuploadedbyautoguide1366117463.477877.jpg

So I just got my truck back from Ford because I had diesel in my coolant. Had the truck back for a week and now I've got this crap in the degas bottle. I am also throwing P0272 CEL. What do you guys think.

tkobes, they friggin did everything.....or so they said. They took my heads off and sent them to the machine shop and had them tested. Machine shop couldnt find any cracks, so they replaced the injector cups. Because Diesel was present in the cooling system, they replaced every rubber component in the cooling system; all hoses, gaskets, o-rings, oil cooler, water pump, thermostat, timing cover, degas bottle, etc. $6800 worth of repairs.....and NO, I did not pay the full bill. Long story short, I was told the truck was ready 3 times before i actually left the dealership with it. First time, threw P0272 code, so they replaced #4 injector, next time, truck lost power and they said it turned out to be an exhaust flow sensor.....this is what ive been dealing with since January 30th.

If you dont do it your self. Be expecting about $6000 if the cooler ruptured internally. But if you had injector cups leaking that could just be residue from them not doing a good cleaning job.
