eating coolant….

Truck has gone through a full 4 liters of coolant in a month
I have about 2000 k left on engine warranty so gotta make an app to get it in
I have heard with a bad head gasket the truck will still hold pressure will it still hold it with a bad EGR tube?

no leaks from the rad or anywhere else that i can tell

forgot to say that my oil is fine

Now I'm no expert on 6.4s, but it's gotta be a problem somewhere between the kaneuter valve and the blinkers. According to legend, when the blinker fluid gets low enough, the Tommy knockers open the kaneuter valve to allow the transfer of fluids from your coolant system into the blinker fluid reservoir so you can still safely warn other motorists of your impending Lane changes.





But really, I'd be tempted to pull vacuum on the coolant system to see it you get bubbles comic from somewhere. If it'll hold vacuum and pressure, I'm at a loss.

the horizontal egr coolers fail often on these. Sometimes you can pressure test and crack the rear bolts loose and see coolant coming out. The only other way is to remove it and bench test it.

forgot about this thread………

it ended up being the lower rad hose or so they tell me.

I asked for a call before any work was done.. I somehow missed the call and they put the rad hose in

over 600 bucks later no more leak

not once did i ever see fluid on my driveway or job site
no idea if it was an oring or crack in the hose

A pinhole in the radiator will do that.. Nice and hot so the leak evaporates before anything shows a wet spot.

Glad you found it
