Big Problem

I think I have a big problem with my newly purchased 2005 6.0 f-250. It has been performing like a champ but I checked the fluids for the first time today and the coolant resivor was really low. Just about empty. Now it could have been low since I had it( nearly a week) but what worrys me is it looks like there is a brown oily substance on the bottom of the tank. What can this be? I will be at ford the first thing monday mourning but I am scared to death man 30000 down the drain, Ithink I might cry

That brownish stuff is a resedue that most of these trucks have if you look at the bottom of the Degas bottle. Its nothing to worry about. As far as your resevour being low, if you can see any fluid in it at all there is at least 90% of your coolant capacity in the truck. Make an Appt. to have it looked at for a leak to be safe but its not a big deal.
