Talking Coolant leak maybe?

I tried posting this message in another forum earlier, and no one responded. So i think i'm doing the right thing by starting my own thread? anywase here goes.

Hello all:
I am new to the forum, well for that matter doing more on the internet than just email and Word haha. I hvae been reading alot on this site about all the PSD trucks and just learning alot. Finally had a question that maybe someone could answer? if this is the wrong place to do this please repremand me and send me to the correct spot! I have a 2003 6.0 that i bought used at about 60K in march. Just now i am starting to get a leak everytime i park somewere and then come back there is a greesy liquid left behind. I know it's not oil, not tranny fluid. The only other thing it could be, is the one thing i don't want it to be! Coolant!! So...with my limited knowledge at age 18...what do i do? And how much is it going to cost...

First off WELCOME TO THE ORG!! As far as the leak goes look at the motor and narrow down where it's coming from and let us know. Then someone can help you diagnose your problem better.

Alright thank you all. I just dropped off my truck at the dealer, and hopefully they will take care of it. THey told me just from looking under the hood at i had a coolant problem...So hopeuflloy they will get that taken care of. Once they do fix everything, is relativly safe to use SCT X3 i'm ordering? Or will that be to dangerous

Had same prob on my 04. It ended up being the egr cooler hose. Dealership replaced it under warrenty. If it looks like its coming from the pass side above the starter I'd bet thats what it is. Any questions pm me. Just got it replaced this week and have had no more leaks.

Although nothing is without risks - the SCT is the way to go for the 6.0.

Welcome to the org! I agree the SCT is the only way to go for the 6.0L!
