fuel in coolant how far can I drive.
Hey all here is my situation,
Towed a jeep from virginia to georgia for a buddy that was moving. About half an hour from his place i start smelling desiel pretty bad. I get to his place and find my degas bottle filled 3/4 of the way with fuel, it had been spewing from the rad cap all over. I siponed out about a gallon of fuel from what was in there and worked some out of tge engine by starting it for a min. Or so and now there doesent seem to be a significant buildup over 15 min of driving. I have been staying at my buddies since friday waiting for shops to open and have been doing research. Looks like it is most likely injector cups as i have no oil in coolant or white smoke. Oil doesent smell like desiel and looks normal. I know this will cost an arm and a leg at a shop. But i dont have tools here to do it and dont want to stay here untill the parts arrive. I thought of driving back the 8 hours home stopping every 30 min or so to siphon any fuel out of the degas so i can get to my tools. I was going to take along a new rad hose set and maybe loop the heater hoses as well. Any thoughts on this? I am in warner robbins Ga. I dont know how long it was leaking as it was ok at the start of the trip (8 hours)
Truck is a 7.3l in a 2002.
Thanks all, i just want to go home.
