The only way for diesel fuel to access the engine coolant is at the injector cups.

You are 100% correct on that.

So you just randomly sampled your coolant or were you having some problems that lead you to this? What were the symptoms if you had any?

hey 77 powerstroke what did you find out about the diesel in your coolant. I thought it was the gm coolant in the bottle at first but everytime i drained the tank of the yellowish orange fluid it kept filling back up after awhile. Today i thought about it and relized it looks like diesel, and smells like diesel so damn-it, it is diesel!!~ Any help on a solution. i have put two grand in this excursion since owning it(have had it only 2 months). Sorry guys have to say it, I guess i should have kept my Cummins!!!!

Awwwww c'mon now, you must have just bought one that wasn't maintained. All I have in mine is a $40 cam sensor (not including personal mods and basic maintanence) and have had it for 6 months or more.
