loosing/ possibly burning coolant
Hey guys hows it going, I know this is my first post but I used to be here under the user name mpiller, I just had to make a new account though. I've got a 2008 f250 4x4 with the 6.4 that I've had for about 2 1/2 years now. Right now it has a little over 170k miles on it. I've got a spartan tuner, afe intake, 4 inch straight pipe exhaust with a dpf and cat delete. I run the 275 tune on the spartan, and about a year and a half ago I blew the head gaskets so I had the egr delete along with arp head studs done. Now recently over this past summer I noticed I was loosing coolant at a decent pace, but I never noticed any spots in the driveway. I also noticed I was losing oil slowly, but I was able to pin point that to a pretty common gasket behind one of the pulleys in front of the motor. I don't remember the name, but it seemed to be a pretty common problem so I just watched the oil level for now. Now I just did my first oil change since this has been going on and I noticed that there was a hefty bit of metal shavings on the oil drain plug and what I am wondering is do I have something major coming up? What common problems should I be looking for? If these are signs of something major is there anything I can do to prevent it?
Thanks guys I'm just getting worried about the coolant problem and now the metal shavings have me really wondering what could be happening. Any insight is appreciated.
