Not again.

Last year I bought a used 03 6.0 PSD. 3 months later I steamed cleaned the heads when I blew all the coolant out the exhaust. I spent a small fortune and got it fixed. i love my PSD, since have installed K&N, and cut out the kitty and muffler. My machanic was right, it runs great.

Until tonight. On the way home I was in cruise control at about 70mph and lost power. I hammered it to the floor and could barely sustain 50 mph.
I drove this way for approximately 20 miles trying to get home, then it just died and wont restart. can anyone help?

I had the same thing happen to me, but I was towing my 5th wheel. It ended up being the Hpo system.

well, last year i had the reservoir replaced and coolant flushed. the new reservoir has a pin hole leak at the seam. i haven't got around to changing it.

I opened the cap and it was low, but I could see coolant.

It was a little low, but I could see coolant. the reservior does have a pin hole leak at the seam. haven't changed it yet. had the coolant flushed last year and it is still dark from the egr failure last year, lots of residue in the coolant.
