Have you done any diagnostics to find out why it's blowing HGs?

I bet you have something wrong with it... could be bad oil cooler, TS Stuck, cracked heads, lots of stuff.

And if they are leaking, chances are re-torquing the studs won't help.

Don't think it's the oil cooler only overpressureize's when cold,

What's "ts" stand for? T-stat, if it's bad.... But it only does it cold
Oh and tell tale light blue smoke from tail pipe for about minute or two

Hope like hell it's not a cracked head

What else could it be arp's have been for over 2years

I think it's the pos black onyx.

....I don't know. Ive been looking at these trucks for over a year and a half, finally get the nerve to buy one with the work done and records to prove it and good maintance and it's still and now cause I bought a bullet proofed one I don't have the money to fix as I would have had if I thought I would have had to put studs in it.

(end rant)

Well, you need to run a compression test on it, and if someone has the adapter to pressurize the cylinders with air to see if it blows over to the adjacent cylinder or bubbles back through the cooling system. Either way, you need more data for a proper diagnosis.

Well, if it would make you feel any better, google Ford Diesel lawsuits and read posts from different folks under those blogs and forums about the miseries and money they've spent just trying to keep their trucks on the road. Sad, really sad. If you have to do the work, you have to do the work, no getting around it. I wouldn't be driving it though, just mess up more stuff and drive the costs through the roof. Good luck, I feel for you cool.

Point well taken. (not exactly a get over it. It could be a lot worse./ but it works)


I have NO choice but to drive it a little. My only vehicle, and i have a one and two year old. We need to be places sometimes

I unplugged the turbo electrical connection and that seemed to help last time. So for now it's a non-turbo diesel
Think it is a good/ bad idea
