6.4 Blowing coolant.

I have a sct dpf delete and one day I wasnt really beating on my truck, just driving fast. It was about 90 out and my truck blew coolant all over the drivers side under the wheel well.The guage didnt say it was overheating and im not sure why it did this. I have pulled on this tune and not had a problem. If anyone knows let me know. One of my friends told me my head gaskets were blown. I dont want to beleive him. Thanks.

I still have heat and its cold here, My 6.0 didnt have much heat when it got cold out. I had 2 a tuner and chip stacked on that truck so I see why it happened but this one I dont get it. The coolant blowing happened in July and I havnt had it happen again.

Just return everything to stock, drive it for a couple days, and then take it to the dealer, buy some studs and try to get them to install them for you instead of stock bolts if it does happen to be the gaskets.

I had a great ford shop to go to but a year ago they totaled my truck and it all went down hill from there. I had a couple of friends that worked there and they really took care of me. They have since been fired for moonlighting and started their own shop. I am headed to glamis in Jan pulling a trailer so I want to make sure I dont have any trouble. Looks like I need to find a new dealer to go to.

Gaskets are blown but while stock you dont make enough cylinder pressure to lift the head(s)

I just dont know how I did it, I dont run the crap out of it and the hottest tune on my sct isnt anything like you spartan guys. The biggest thing I have towed is a car trailer with 4 atvs on it. I think its wierd. And I HATE to have to go thru all the crap to put it back to stock, My sensors got kinda messed up when I was changing them.
