6.0L Questions

Ok. So, my truck has been acting wierd. My truck has 4in exhaust, S&B intake, Banjo bolts, FICM tuning and SCT.

If I run "Xtreme Street" from Eric the truck pukes... not alot dribbles more the word for it, out of the degas bottle. Anytime I run the tune, it does this, even light driving.

If I run "SRL file" the truck occasionally does the same, but only on highway driving. It does it MAYBE once a month. Other that, its fine. wont puke. Has alot of pressure in the degas bottle after driving. Worries me because I smell coolant.

The level when its cold never changes. Im not loosing much/if any coolant. I made a line on the degas bottle and check it, and its at the same level when its cold.

I will be doing EGR delete/head studs/ and coolant filter kit this winter.

What do I need to check and fix this coolant problem now. Anybody have any ideas. Thanks in advance.

Pigg

"Xtreme Street" pukes no matter what. Normal driving of WOT.

"SRL file" seems to puke at highway driving. not really under a major load. Wierd thing is, if Im hard on the truck it wont puke, untill next time I drive it, like a week later. Not sure if that helps

Ok Do you have access to an Insight or IDS? Check your ECT and EOT. I had a bad oil cooler that was causing coolant to flash and made it spit every once in a while like your describing. I was getting EOT 40 apart. oil cooler replaced and all has since been well.

Exactly as your describing on the highway normal driving it would spit a very little. My cruising temps were still about 30 degrees apart.

By the way. How can you even see the coolant bottle? you carry a step ladder around?

I suspect oil cooler as well. and I can tell when it pukes cause its on the frame and inner fender well... then I pop the hood and get a ladder!

So, is that what everyone would suspect being the oil cooler going bad? Anything else I can/should check out?

Hope it will make it to winter and I can do studs/delete and new oil cooler I guess.

Mine was doing the same thing, had to add coolant like every day! Mine was my head gaskets and oil cooler! So I had studs and replace cooler and no problems with either anymore. Not a cheap fix though, but with the money you got invested in the Pigg I would definatley get her done! PS i plan on getting some banjo bolts done too, what did you pay for the whole thing , bolts and labor? Just curious if you dont mind?
