Wait, it leaked on the ground?

Or just missing?


Missing:
I have this

EGR blocked and disabled
Oil test showed 0 coolant in oil
No longer see white smoke

So where in the heck did it go?


I lost about Pint to 1/2 pint opafter towing to Co...

I with you, where did it go?



Have a BlackStone report just to ensure it's not in the oil


My 2010 has 29K and only run tow tune

Did you see that it is leaking down the frame rail or any visible signs of coolant?

Do your upper and lower hoses have the black ends or white?

It very well could be one of your hoses leaking as the black ends are the old hoses. The new hoses have 2 o rings.
