What is this part - help please

My dad just got a 2010 F350 work truck and I'm not that familar with the 6.4 besides the fact that this thing huals *** stock, I can't imagine a fully tuned truck - unreal!

Anyway, on the top of the engine, right hand side, there is a small reservoir behind the degas bottle. It looks like you can put antifreeze in this small reservoir. I THINK it is the external oil cooler reservoir. Am I correct???

If not - fill me in.

Thanks guys!

that is for the fuel and vgt cooling system, there is a small cooler to the left of the intercooler that is the cooler for it and there is a small elec pump that is mounted on the fan shroud that turns on when your fuel temp reaches 95 or higher.

Ok.

So does this reservoir hold antifreeze???

And how often do you have to add fluid to the reservoir, just when/if it gets low?

It takes the same antifreeze as your engine, It also has a sight glass on the front of it so you can see if it is low. You should never have to mess with it unless you open the system.
