Slow coolant loss?
I Just did my first oil change on the truck since i purchased it, two weeks ago. I've been keeping an eye on all the fluids, espeacialy the coolant weekly. I tow with the truck 90% of the time.
Well this weekend I finaly recieved my egr valve delete spool and went to install it. Looked at the coolant bottle and it was about 2"s below the min line. When I pulled the egr valve I did not see any signs of coolant. The last two months its been trouble free. It has never puffed a bit of smoke, on start up or with the foot to the floor. Is this sign of the cooler leaking or a head gasket going? What should I check for?
Also after I pulled the egr valve it was caked prety good. Installed the spool. And did feel a bit of a power gain. Minimal but there. Also With the valve unpluged I have had no check engine light pop up.
I planed to do a full cooler delete this winter when The truck will be sitting most of the time. What do I need to do?
