geting head stud work :(

I have been looking at the degas often, and yesterday I saw a drizzle of dried fluid on the inside of the ring with the slit. I checked the rubber cap seal and its perfect.

Its driven only once a week. I told my father to drive it like a g-ma and leave it on stock. I'm not going to tell him it needs new head studs cuz it will scare him (bad for me). But I will explain once I have all the information and the game plan for my wife(truck)

I'm going to disconnect the edge soon. RP eng oil, it has 43,000 Miles.

I can disconnect the edge but what about the pyrometer thats on the down pipe???

I'm calling the dealer to ask about the warranty and the stud work tomorrow.

"""""So how should I go about this with the dealer."""""" I got 4 dealers that are close by that I'm willing to drive to, Fathers is 14miles.

I would call the dealers first and just flat out ask. Tell them you think you are leaking coolant and if they have to replace gaskets will they put in studs for you if you supply them They should tell you yes or no and then you can take it to the one that says yes.

I called 2 dealers today. 1st, nothing gained. 2nd, I love them.

$160 diagnosis. Waived is problem found

$100 deductible

They will look at the EGR, Oil cooler, and heads to find the cause of the coolant leak out of the degas. ALL FULLY COVERED

AND THEY ARE PRO ARP!!!!!! and I still have my warranty!!!!!
^^^^I love people with common sense^^^^
