monitoring eot and ect Head gaskets again?
How can I monitor my eot and ect, without buying an insight? I have pillar gauges and really don't want to buy an insight. I have recently done a complete bulletproof on my truck and afterwards i flushed the cooant with restore and restore + and installed a cooant filter. I am running the cat elc1 coolant also. All that work was done 6 months ago and the truck ran great until recently I noticed it puking out the cap and alittle white smoke on start up. You could smell antifreeze in the exhust sometimes in the morning also. The truck was using about 1 to 2 quarts of antifreeze a week. It does not leak a drop of anything, trust me I spent plenty of time looking for leaks and trying to convince myself that it must be leaking somewhere. Pulled heads again to replace gaskets and sent heads off to be checked. Did not see anything wrong with gaskets. Shop did a complete rebuild of the heads and did not find any cracks and milled .003 and .004 off when resurfacing. My question is was that my problem or did I plug my brand new oil cooler up when flushing?
Any help would be great. I will have the truck back together soon and don't want this problem again.
