post this in the 94-98 general forum. also, fuel in coolant means that there is now coolant in the fuel, sounds like a injector cup is cracked.

Wouldn't it go high pressure to low pressure? I would think there is always more pressure on the fuel system than the cooling system.

I loosened the cap and it seemed to help because it's not leaking as bad. Is it safe to drive until after the holidays?

i dont know the 7.3s very well at all, never had one. i would say common, sense wise, if theres not a ton of fuel in the coolant and its running fine u should be ok. Baring a total failure.

Right now she is telling you somethings wrong. Safe bet is park it. Its a hard choice when you have obligations.

Maybe this bump will get some 7.3 folks to chime in

good luck
