my 6.0 white death story
Not sure if anyone wants to hear it, but It's because of here that I learned that white residue around my degas cap meant big troubles.
I've noticed that a very small amount of coolant was coming out of my cap for quite some time, but to this day I've never had to add any. Until recently (and reading on here) I didn't even worry about it. Today I took it to the dealer and the mechanic tested it, but couldn't make any coolant come out and said everything tested great. He said it was most definately a h.g. issue but that it seemed to be ok for now. He knows my oil/egr cooler were both replaced 10.5k miles ago. It's 04 thats obv out of warranty and I don't have $3500 to $5000 or whatever it takes to fix it. It still runs and drives like new but with my problem at hand it looks like my time is running out. Any suggestions? Any local mechanics near Cincinnati, OH? Is trading it in now my only option?
b.t.w. turbo was replaced 5k miles ago, so this could be my last fix I'd like to think.
