7.3 fuel in the coolant, injector cups and a mechanics quote.
So around 3 years ago my 2002 Ford excursion started leaking fuel into the coolant. I google searched it, it brought me here, and you helpful folks had answered any questions I had. I was then able to take it a diesel mechanic, have them pulled and replaced, and all was well. Since then I have used the site as resource and drastically improved my mechanical skills. During a trip to Ohio at the end of October I stopped at gas station for A stop and to refill my wiper fluid. I noticed a bit of fuel in my coolant again. So, long story semi short, they guy I originally had do them is out of business. The new guy who I brought it to, just called me, and gave me quote for 2300 dollars saying headers have to be pulled and milled. What I need to know is. A) is there any reason you would have to mill the headers? B) if no, then how hard is it to pull these things myself, change the O rings. And get my truck in working order again. I'm at my wits end with themechanics I've been dealing with (long part of the story I left out) thank you in advance.
