clogged cooler or bhg?

I deleted my egr coolers last week

Now my coolant has an orange film and is puking

I have burned to quarts of oil in 1000 miles

Keeps going into limp mode

But will not go into limp mode when it is cold outside

Also smoke is pouring out of oil breather

If there is pressure oin the cooling system and the coolers are gone its more than likely a head gasket.

turns out I had a clogged oil cooler. I guess it wasnt that bad because it cleared up.

at the same time i ended up having a leaking trans cooler so i had coolant and trans fluid mixing.

also thermostats were stuck open.

I had trans cooler replaced and drained trans and instaled new filter.

I used ELC coolant from local big rig shop.

Truck runs great again, no funky coolant, no puking, no temp problems.


How do people get blown head gaskets with these trucks? I dog the crap out of mine and overload it all the time. Im wondering how many people are getting screwd and just told its a BHG.

blown headgaskets come from the high cylinder pressures in your several hundred horsepower tunes. that's pretty much the only way to do it.

the truck is acting up again.

If i fill the degas bottle to the fill line, it will puke. but if i leave it low, its stays in the same and does not puke.

It goes into limp mode

all fluids are clean but the degass bottle has dirty film on the sides that looks like carbon.

clogged cooler or blown head gasket?

You are throwing codes and wrench lights right? Which DTC codes are showing up. You may have to do the "all day coolant flush." Also, you deleted the coolers but did you remove them? Did you ever have "limp mode problems before the delete? Finally, when you flashed you truck did you select EGR delete "yes"

What are your ECT/EOT deltas? Is it oil thats in your degas bottle? More than likely if your truck is puking its your head gaskets.

The way to tell if your cooler is clogged is to check your ECT/EOT deltas. We cant tell you if we dont know this info.

If you are seeing carbon built up in the degas bottle, the EGR coolers are deleted, the thermostats have been replaced, and it is puking coolant, than I would say there is an excellent chance that your Head Gaskets are toast. I would also check compression.
