And the tech said...

Took the beast into a dealer, asked for the diesel guru, explained, truck runs great, but I get an exhaust smell, and I am losing coolant, appears to out of the degas bottle. Up pipe??? Educate me. He stated if the up pipe breaks, I lose boost, I told him I have great boost (runs like a raped ape! Apologies to simians everywhere). Put it on the rack (vehicle lift), both exhaust manifolds are leaking, small slit in the up pipe... asked about the coolant. The coolant manages to enter the extremely hot clogged oil filter..POOF! vaporizes (pressurizes degas bottle) and you smell auntie frieze. $3400 thereabouts and I am ready to go...really not a bad price. 116,000 miles.. my thoughts? (Cannot be expressed without referencing incestual relationships between engineers and thier primary caregivers ..) My bad.. I can see this happening again... The picture is of aluminum radiators being rodded out because of deposits clogging the passageways years ago, and we bury an anuminuminum cooler with miniscule aperatures in a valley and run coolant thru it?? I'm telling O'Bama...

You paid $3400 to replace both exhaust manifolds and uppipe? Must have been in the stimulus package lol

The quote is to clean, replace the exhaust gaskets, r/r the oil cooler and related components. I think the price is fair, the system is what irritates me.. 'back in the day' they found that running coolant through cast iron created deposits that clogged aluminum radiators.. or so I was told, an educated sequential analytical thought process would reason that 'hay', this might be a problem, an aluminum oil coooler, with coolant cycled through the cast iron. I might have this wrong, backwards... I aren't an ingeneer. I look at this forum, see the puking posts, where people have done everything they know.. and I see a potentially inherent recurring issue, can you delete the oil cooler? It gets clogged, ruptures... more issues... is there a solution.. is there a Dr Phil answer.. I had a 7.3, (i know, not the same) one water pump, 1 in line feeder pump, 2 cam sensors, and 1 or 2 injectors in 340,000 miles. I like a rig that I can pay off... and drive, w/o warranty issues... if the system is 'flawed' there goes the confidence...

In easier terms, he's concerned that the anti freeze is picking up mineral deposits and leaving them in the oil cooler when the antifreeze boils out of the oil ...( I think )

Long term solution , EGR delete and coolant bypass. Keep coolant where it belongs, out of the combustion chamber. You could go to the extreme of using Demin water I suppose. Or, now they do have completely waterless coolants. Used in commercial sever service stuff quite a bit, and coolant filtration systems.

I kinda like the way it was typed.....Entertaining, very literal
