Monday while I was idling in the McDonald's drive thru my oil and coolant temps started to rise quickly. By the time I got out of the drive thru my coolant and oil temps where 250!!! To make matters worse, right before I shut the truck off in the same parking lot, it started smoking white and blue smoke like I have never seen before. Filled the entire parking lot! Took it to a diesel mechanic and he quoted $8000!
Egr cooler went out and then went the oil cooler, and last but not least the head gaskets. I can't believe they all went out within a 5 minute period!!! Oil was pouring out of the degas bottle and the crankcase was empty!!!
Im having the shop do: Headstuds(with oem headgaskets), full egr delete, bulletproof oil cooler(with cold weather kit), bulletproof 58v ficm, STC fitting, 6.4 banjo bolts, blue fuel spring, dummy plugs and standpipes, new degas bottle and cap, turbo drain pipe, hpop screen, icp screen, amsoil bypass oil filter and replace every o-ring, seal, or gasket they come in contact with.
Parts are going to be almost $6000 alone so I think they are giving me a good deal.
I have a few questions for ya guys...
When they flush the coolant side of the block, should I get some restore plus for the mechanic?
Is there anything else in my list I'm forgetting? I don't want to have to go back into the motor because I forgot something!
