small amount of coolant in my oil/exhaust
hey everyone talking about a 96 f250 7.3 automatic
I recently changed my block heater about 4 days ago. pulled the old one out got covered in a waterfall of coolant and quickly threaded the new one in to stop the waterfall.
well the other day I noticed a small bit of coolant in the end of my tailpipe. no smoking or anything
I pulled the dipstick and it looked alittle green
I parked the truck and stopped driving had it sit for a day and tonight I pulled the valve covers off and saw no signs of coolant, checked the oil it was normal level and no sign of coolant the truck was cold at this point
looking at the driverside rear of the motor near oil cooler/filter/blockheater its wet. the oil cooler tube looks dry and not rotted.
I drained the oil and saw no coolant or anything I pulled the oil filter off and it looked like alittle coolant and oil up in the filter mounting area and there is no sign of oil in my coolant
anyone have any idea?
the truck doesn't overheat and doesn't smoke at all
coolant level in the tank dropped about 3/4 of an inch in the 4 days. I topped it off after I put the new block heater in
