Got me a ricer, but.....

cruising on the tollway here in Austin and in the rear view is a ricer weaving in and out of traffic, let him get a bit ahead of me and he slows a bit, pull up next to him and floor it, spit a black cloud in his window and left him, had to hit my brakes as there was a 'Y' in the tollway (missed my exit ) then he did his usual ricer fly-by, then... I smelled the 'ol coolant puking. (I assume) I never see any coolant, but I can sure smell it, is this the issue everyone is always referencing?

Nice.... sounds like the the problem w/ the coolant. Have a buddy here who has 04 that kept doing the mysterious smell and the dealer put a "recall sticker" on the fill tank for the radiator which lowered the full mark by about 1 1/2 in. and he has not had a problem since. Tell Lake Travis i miss it....Class of 90

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's molded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC on any of it, never will.
Take 3/4 of the info and recommendations on here with a grain of salt

Just saw that over on the bulletins page, Have a brother-in-law that works for Ford so maybe he can just bring me one of those stickers home. I think it pretty much sets the MAX fill line near the orig MIN. I will get some coolant out of the bottle and see if still happens. Thanks
