blow head gasket about time.

Well its kind of weard but I am pritty happy yet not because I wont have my truck for about 2 weeks, but anyhow. My head gaskets blew today when I was hauling about 10,000 pounds of wood. It overheted twice going up the hills. So I stopped at the dealership which is right by our shop, and they said it was def blown heads. coolant was comming out around the cap. I was starting to worry because my warranty runs out at the end of the year and as much trouble as I have had with this truck I just knew they would probably blow on January 1st, but lucky me they blew today with 70,000 miles on it. Worst part is I tried to get them to put studs in 2 weeks ago when it was in the shop for a month for egr which is now deleted and snap to connect fitting. Owell they said to keep driving it till they can get me in they have 3 other trucks with blown heads to put on before mine. so Arp here I come. Any suggestion on the best price for studs.

Yep, you better have a very good dealer to get warranty coverage with an EGR delete.
