Modern diesel is green and so is most antifreeze. Are you sure it is coolant?


Pray pray pray it is not the cups.

i'm 100% percent sure cause my water light is always on and i'm losing coolant fast. it smokes like a train when its cold white and blue. and misses at a idle and it smoothes out around 1900rpm but still sounds like **** and sounds like its knocking but the injectors are making lots of noise

All the light means is you got a bad tank of fuel, or the bowl has never been drained. You need to find the fuel bowl drain and drain the water out. Do a search.

There is no possible way coolant can get into the fuel bowl. The smoke and coolant loss sounds like a bad head gasket. If you have a mechanic saying the water in the fuel filter bowl is coolant, find another mechanic fast. If it is a friend saying it is coolant, kick him in the nuts and key his Chevy.

Good luck.

How can coolant get up into the fuel bowl? It would have to somehow drain into the fuel tank first, and that sir is simply impossible. I would be checking your oil. How much are you loosing? Plenty of places to loose coolant from, water pump would be my first guess, when they first start to leak it can be really hard to see it because it dries as fast as it drips. Look for the residue that coolant leaves behind.

i'm not an retard, the antifreeze is in my coolant, stop assuming its a water pump, i'm sure its going into my fuel filter. Please if anyone has any answers call me 541-401-8140, it only smokes when its cold thats it, runs ruff at an idle warm or cold, and its missing, i know my injectors are shot now due to the coolant going thru the injectors. need some advice, i'm tearing the injectors on friday and i'll let you know what i find but in the mean time i would like to see what you guys might know that i don't. this is my first powerstroke so i'm not 100% familar with it so any help would be great
