may need headgaskets

i've had both coolers and egr valves changed and it still pucks coolant. Dealer said put it all back to stock bring it in and the ford rep is coming to look at it. There is what appears to be soot in the bottom of the degas bottle. I just hope they'll warranty it. No coolant in the oil it just blows out the bottle the dealer said ford will only warranty the hg that is bad, thats BS you never do just one. Any sugestions for getting the soot out of the tail pipe!!

I honestly dont think you could get all the soot out. Just out your stock tailpipe back on.

i don't know how much soot you need to get off but here are picks of my stock tail pipe before i put my 5" on and this is with a perfectly functioning DPF and only 3k miles on the truck. they still make soot.
