My '05 In for service

Hi all !!
Thanks again to all who have posted info and tips on the org helping me to try and get to the bottom of my coolant puking delima. And thanks to Stroketech and the other techs for your advise. I was losing coolant at nearly all driving conditions until I replaced the de-gas bottle cap. Then, I began losing coolant under loads (towing, etc.). Took my baby to the local dealership and was told in about an hour after arriving, the headgaskets were blown & they would need my truck for a week, I know right, SUX. Thank God for the warranty!! What I did notice though is some of the techs here had said in threads to request that a data aquisition monitor be used during a road test by the dealership. Well guys, my local dealership did this, without me requesting it! Seems these guys may be on the right road to helping PSD owners get their rig fixed right the first time. So if you're ever driving south of OKC on I-35 and have problems, look up Legacy Ford in Pauls Valley. I'll keep y'all updated as the repair continues.

Awesome bud! Nice to hear of some great places in Oklahoma!

Glad you got it all fixed up! Did you put aftermarket headstuds back in instead of oem headstuds?

FInd out if they will put ARPs in instead of the stock head bolts. Might need to pay an additional labour charge but the studs are well worth it.

shouldn't be any additional labor sinec the studs are likely going to need to be replaced since the gaskets went (isn't that usually cause the studs stretched?)

But I would definately have it done while they are in there!

Unfortunately, the studs are beyond my budget right now. I know the price is well worth it, but, stuff happens.
