no heat

hey guys, I recently bought a 06 F350 6.0 and I am having a problem with the heating. it takes a long time to get heat on idle, it gets good heat when the rpms are above 1500, but when I let off the throttle the air then goes cold. the truck is also burping out some coolant around the cap(which I replaced and it is still doing it) I also noticed that the coolant level was about half way between empty and full, and after I started it with the cap off the coolant level rose to above the full line within 5 mins of idiling and it rose a little more after I put the cap back on with the engine still running. after the engine sat for a couple mins I opened the cap again and I could hear the coolant running back into the system and the level went back down to where it started at when it was cold. I was reading some ford diesel forms and I read one about letting the truck idle for ten of fifteen mins with the reservoir cap off to let any air bubbles out but no air bubbles came out so I don't think that it is the issue. there was a white smoke coming out of the reservoir while the engine was running though, is that normal? any ideas? and FYI-I don't know if it has an egr delete(if you know how to tell if it does or not please share lol) and as far as I can tell it looks like it has head bolts not studs.

okay, I found a forum that said pull the egr valve out and if it was wet or a wet gooey substance in the manifold then your egr is bad, which it is wet and there was a gooey black substance all over the egr valve and inside the manifold as well. so I just ordered an egr delete kit and we will see what happens when I get that installed

I received my egr delete today, and I was started removing everything and I noticed that in the pipe from the air filter to the turbo there is a hose that goes from it to the valve cover, but anyway it is pulling oil up though that hose and into the turbo. is this normal?

what you have their is the crank case vent. If it was my truck I would reroute that sucker so it can vent out under the truck. Ive done this in my personal truck and most all big trucks running down the road come this way from the factory.
Up in the search feature type in ccv mod and you can find all sorts of info.

that will be my next project I guess. However, I finally got the egr delete kit all installed and now it won't start. everything is plugged back in(except for the egr valve) and I don't see anything that is out of place, any ideas?

it is just rolling over no kick, and sometimes I don't hear the injector rattle when you first turn the key on. I don't have a monitor, I used starter fluid and it still never kicked.

I got it going finally, I starting taking it apart again and I was checking all the connectors as I went and I noticed one of the connectors for the ficm was half unplugged so I plugged it back in and it fired right up.

I am sure you will be glad to know that my heat problem was fixed with the egr delete, so now even at an idle I have nice hot air. that being said, I now have low boost. so tomorrow I shall take everything apart to try and find a leak.
