Was the smell from a bad EGR cooler, oil cooler, and the head gaskets or did the smell come after the listed fixes.

Oh it was just the coolant coming out of my degas bottle (puking). It would be hot and come through the vents.

Oh the reason was head gaskets, they replaced the other stuff before to see if it would still puke and it did. I just got all 3 replaced.

Sure would like to find the cause of the exhuast smell in the vents. Don't know if a bad head gasket would cause my problem or not. The truck is a 2006 F-250 Crew-Cab 4X4 with 38,000 miles. I guess I will take it to the dealer to see if they can find the problem. Don't get wrong but most of the time most people don't want to here there head gaskets have gone bad but my truck has not been studded yet and it would make it easyer to get it done. The truck recently had the motor pulled for a bedplate repair and when I got it back it puked a little but I think it was over filled because I took some coolant out and it has not done it again. It might be something they did not get lined up right when they restalled the motor that is causing the exhuast smell to come through the air vents.
