Head gaskets or oil cooler puking
04 F350 4x4 extened cab goes past 16psi on cooling system, only when coolant is warm. When cold nothing, holds pressure after warm come back two hours later still at 5psi. When starting warm & cold no spike in psi.
My question can oil cooler be causing this, no I don't have a scanner that reads temps. looking into that. Can oil cooler super heat coolant enough to cause puking. Want to tow camper, but need to take care of this first.
Have EGR delet, will do coolant flush & oil cooler at same time, just don't want to do all that & then have to do heads.
Truck owes me nothing for what I paid for it & snowplowing work it has done for me. Love this truck.
