New truck? Fuel in the coolant. What a day......

I flew into Dallas, TX yesterday morning to drive back my new truck. Well, I was supposed to drive back my new truck.

2003 F350 CC, dually 7.3L, 6spd with 187K on it.

The seller is a dealer on ebay that sells these trucks. He bought it off a dealer in OK about 30 days ago. Anyway, he picks me up in it at the airport. Truck runs fantastic. Shifts great, no missing, no issues from what I can hear audibly at all. Lots of aftermarket goodies on it. Good power, smooth idle, great driving truck. We get back to his place and shut it off. I am planning on buying it, but want to check under the hood and do a solid once over on it.

Pop the hood and there is diesel all over the PS battery coming from the coolant res cap. Open up the coolant res, and sure enough fuel all in the coolant.

So, it looks like an injector cup is leaking. Ironically, there were 8 old injector cups behind the rear seat wrapped up in a towel. This dealer did not do that work, but they were behind the seat when he got the truck. So, whoever installed the new cups didn't seat at least one correctly. Or, there is an injector not seated properly.

Anyway, the seller offered to buy me a return plane ticket back to Denver while he gets the truck fixed. I'm just glad we found it before I paid him and started the 845 mile drive home in it.

He is going to do all the cups and the injectors and we agreed on the price when it was finished. Hopefully it will be done on Tues so I can fly back in on wed and drive it home.

The reason I want this particular truck is that it has a lot of really nice little goodies under the hood. Its in great shape cosmetically, inside, outside, and under the hood.

First of all, you can tell this truck has been completely babied by who ever owned it. I was hoping someone might recognize it and the list of parts on it so I could find the owner who did all this work and get some history on it.

So, first of all, It has a Garrett 38r under the hood. Turbo is relatively new from what I can tell.

But, I have a few questions about some other stuff as well that maybe you guy can help answer.

Some things I do know.
1. Garrett 38R
2. Riff Raff Boost fooler
3. Riff Raff intercooler boots
4. Secondary fuel Filter
5. Coolant Filter system.
6. 4" DP, to 4inch exhaust. It has a muffler. Looks like your typical Diamond Eye, MBRP type exhaust.
7. Bellowed up pipes installed
8. Motorcraft AIS intake system w/ lifetime filter
9. Riff Raff OCR Overboost correction kit
10. Riff Raff intake plenum boots
11. Riff Raff AIH delete plug

Pics of the actual truck itself. Hoping someone recognizes this truck and knows the owner who did the work. I am going to try to get a hold of Clay at Riff Raff since a ton of these parts were bought from him to see if maybe he knows a little info on it.

Okay, one more thing I didn't realize. This truck has the Motorcraft AIS filter system on it as well. Motorcraft AIS Extended Life Filter Kit - Riffraff Diesel Performance

He congrat's on the truck, and having a cool dealer that sounds like a good guy for flying you back and repairing the truck. With the fifth wheel brackets I don't know how babied it has been but it sure has some nice add on's. Enjoy the ride when you get too pick it up
