I went too fast, now somthing is LEAKING

ok, I know this sounds and seems stupid in after thought but.......I was leaving walmart tonite and went to get on the bypass, ( about 10 mi of nothing but striaght 4 lane), and a little Acura that was in front of me nailed the gas and took off. I was not in a hurry and not looking for trouble but the lil devil on my shoulder urged me to do it. I nailed it too. I was gaining on him preeety darn good and my gps hit 132 mph and held it for about 2 mi. I dont know who the guy was but he was not ticked off or anything by me taking him as a matter of fact from the look on his face he was pretty amazed that this behemoth had the sack to do it. Anyway enuf braggin, I got home and let the thing idle for about 10 minutes and cut it off. When I did I noticed a little smoke or steam coming from the wiper cowl. I popped the hood and there was liquid up on top of the power steering cap and on the brake booster/master cyl. cap. I cant tell what it is... I was kinda hard on the brakes when I got to my driveway could it be a brake over pressure? What did I just do to my truck??? I am about 12 days and 200 miles over my warranty!!

Its an 04 6.0 FX4 with 100, 189 miles any help or input would be greatly appreciated. I plan on running to see Jeff at Slick Trick after new years. I'll be pimpin the 5.0 till then.


By the way, I'll be posting most of this again in another thread. If I screwed it up beating a sports car why not brag, right??!!

I wouldnt call it a "race" more like a case of the DUMB### the testosterone made me do it. But who wouldnt do it? I didnt know my truck had it in her to be honest. I can only imagine what the guy thought when he saw what passed him. It was stupid though.

Hold on there. Do you still have an EGR cooler on there, or have you yanked it out? Do you have your truck tuned? What I think it is, based on what you signature says, is that your Exhaust Gas Temperatures got way too high, and it caused your coolant to boil in your EGR cooler, and it forced your de-gas bottle to puke. Do you have gauges?

Your Sig doesn't say anything about a gauges or an EGR delete. And if it is not tuned, that doesn't mean that you can't cause the thing to puke on stock tuning. The 6.0 is already a hot tuned motor.

What I would suggest is check the liquid once it gets light out side, and it will probably be coolant. Check the coolant bottle to see how much is missing. Check your oil to see if there is any water in it. If there is no water in the oil, then refill the bottle and take it for a drive. See if it immediately starts blowing it out again.

You may have cracked your EGR cooler, in which case it won't get better now that it's cooled off. If you only overheated the cooler, then it could have survived, and you have a lesson learned.

The other possibility is that you did blow a head gasket, but I don't think so. With a stock turbo, stock tuning, etc, it is generally not going to blow a head gasket. 6.0's are known for having bad gaskets and weak head bolts, but usually when they fail it because of abuse (tuners, big turbos and injectors). Some stock ones will fail too.

So, to further diagnose this, you need to tell everyone what else the truck has.
EGR, tuning, other mods, what gauges, etc. This will fill in the other pieces of the puzzle.

If hes running Erics tunes his egts shouldn't be too high. I only hit 1400 a couple of times and it goes back down to 1100-1200 and thats on his Extreme Race Stud tune. From 50-100 or so.
