LOTS of oil in intake, degas bottle burping while driving?

I have a 05 F350 with a 6.0. It has 480,000 kms on it. The engine always has a smell of antifreeze from under the hood. No visible leaks except for the coolant bottle wet on it and below it from the cap. No matter what level I put it at and I do have to add coolant frequently. no white exhaust that I can see. just bluish from a bad ficm. The truck does have a EGR Delete on it. but the EGR valve is still in place as to not give the code. Inside the intake manifold when I take out the EGR Valve, it is all Oil. enough to get a piece of paper towel wet with the oil. My friend says its a head gasket but there in no oil in the coolant or coolant in the oil. I have to say its really confusing me. When you look at the visible head bolts they are just bolts, not studs. the person I purchased the truck from said all that stuff was done. but regardless weather it was or not I would really just like your insight to diagnose it please. Im at a loss and cant afford to get the work done by someone. it will be me.

Have you checked the degas cap? I always like to start with the simplest and cheapest possibilities first. As for the oil in the intake, I have no idea. Only oil next to the intake is the oil filter housing. Are you sure what you think is oil is actually just exhaust soot with a little coolant mixed in?

I changed it today with a Preston brand. What will it do though? The oil in the intake is all oil. I absorbed some of it out with paper towel and there's no coolant.

If the cap is bad it will cause the cooling system to either not get up to pressure or allow to much pressure to build up higher than 16psi. What kind of egr delete do you have? The problem with the oil in the intake is that the only place I can think of it coming from is the ccv... But if that's the case you have a huge problem because it normally builds up before the intake. It builds up on the inside of the intercooler boots.

I would clean your intake, intake elbow, all the cac pipes and do the ccv mod and see if it helps.

I am not sure what kind of delete it is. I have only had the truck for 2 weeks and noticed these problems. I spoke to a local person today and he said just get a different engine. but that's not really on option at this point. I will take your advice and start with the cleaning of things.

Your engine is probably fine... Just make sure to do the ccv mod, lots of write ups if your unaware of this mod. It's also very cheap if you do it yourself. Update your sig, it helps members when giving advice on your problems. How do you know the egr is deleted? Is it actually gone? If not it just has freeze plugs welded into each end of it. Basically that's the only two egr deletes available.

The Egr cooler is gone. you can see the small tube under the intake and the large pipe towards the firewall. the EGR valve is still in place and attached to the wiring. Must be like that so no code shows up. ill update sig tomorrow.

Your right, when the egr valve is installed it doesn't throw codes
