Help with puking before its too late?

Maybe y'all experts can help me out. I have an 04 6.0 with about 120k and Recently I have had some puking around the degas bottle. I took my sct off, seemed to help a little but it is still puking. I do not have 4k to get new studs If I go ahead and do the egr delete, oil cooler and flush it could that fix the problem? I also smelled a slight antifreeze smell when I first cranked the truck tonight when i was wiping the degas off. That really got me worried. What are my options? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!

that would deffenately help, your egr can get stuck any time and youll have a hydrolocked engine...delete the egr system and drive it until the gaskets are done...dont wait too long either because the damaged gaskets at a certain point may damage your heads and you will need to have them machined while you do the bulletproofing

If I deleted the egr do you think that would stop the puking for a while? Thanks

The EGR valve doesn't control coolant. It controls exhaust. You can unplug it, EGR valve, ( when the engine is cold) and hope it keeps the failed EGR cooler from leaking coolant into the intake, but, I, personally wouldn't drive it.

Park your truck nose down, as best you can. Pop the EGR valve out in the morning and see what is in there. Coolant in there, EGR cooler is toast.

Test your coolant for Exhaust gasses. You can get a kit at the parts store. Eliminate head gasket failure. If there is gasses in the coolant, sorry, you need head gaskets.

If you find there isn't exhaust gasses in the coolant, you may be lucky and just need to do the EGR delete AND oil cooler replacement.

Since you didn't share your ECT vs EOT temps, we would have to assume your oil cooler is plugged.

By the way, I really love the looks of your truck.

ok do the egr delete throw the new oil cooler in there and you can flush it but i wouldnt not till you know that your problem is fixed or your just wasting money that sweet smell should worry you some that means theres coolant in your exghaust system most likely your egr cooler and i will tell you this they sell them on ebay for $150 they work just as good as the $300 jobs so you know i have one of them and no problems with it....now for the bad if all this keeps up then its your heads and theres no way around that good luck give all taht a shot and see where you are after wards

I say you get roughly 800-1k saved up and look at some of these threads about doing head studs read them a couple times and get a buddy or two a bunch of beer and tackle that SOB your self. My 2 cents

Alright thank y'all for the input. Can some one shoot me a good link for doing the head studs yourself? I just don't know if I could handle this motor, I am mechanically inclined to a certain extent and can tare down gas motors, but never messed with a diesel.
