2004 6.0 loosing coolant and steaming engine.......
I bought this 2004 6.0 250XLT that wasn't running.
in fact it had milky oil and no coolant......
We took the cab off and did the heads, bolts, delete & oil cooler!
Then i couldn't get it started so i gave up and went to the dealership here they charged my $800 to change the IPR valve.... : (
At that time they also told me that it had an external coolant leak from behind the front cover and they could fix it for an estimated $2000.
Does this sound right?
the engine is loosing coolant and when i stop it, it has steam coming from around the front cover area.....
He mentioned something about a gasket that can fail back there.
Has anyone every changed that gasket? mean i have to take the turbo, manifold off again?
