What all will the do!

Ok If you seen my preivoous post you know I bout a 05 f250 harley edition and starting noticing the the fluid go down in the degas bottle a lil at a time. Well I hooked my 28 ft enclosed trailer and race car to it and went out of town and about 200 miles in the trip the temp starting going up. well long story short and 15 gallons of water later I get ot back home. I just filled the bottle up every 20 mins. so it never would run out. Any way its at the dealer they doing a head job on it. What all will they do exacly. I now there some techs on here. Will they flush everything and change the oil etc

Yeah they will flush everything and change your oil, stuff like that. They'll probably take the cab off to access the motor, tear it down and replace the gaskets and use new head bolts as well. If you haven't done so already run yourself down to the dealer and see about substituting your own set of ARP headstuds in place of the new bolts that ford would supply. If you can get your hands on a set fast, they run about $500, I'd have the tech use them instead of the factory bolts. In the long run you'd be glad you did. The ford gaskets on our trucks are not the problem. Its the headbolts themselves stretching and blowing by the gaskets. Use of a good set of studs will eliminate the problem in the future due to the much higher clamping force they provide. Just my .02. Hope this helps.

Pretty much required to drain the oil and coolant in order to do the head gaskets. Another thing to consider with loss of coolant... was the area around the degas bottle coated in dried coolant? If not, then the EGR cooler might be compromised and allowing coolant to be leaking into the intake manifold.
