05 f350 dually 66k started leaking

gentleman, I am brand new to this site and hoping for answers. My truck is driven a total of 350 miles each weekend and then sits. Have not towed with it for two years. A couple of months ago it starts to leak out of the right rear of the engine. AND the radiator reserve goes dry!!! The stain on the driveway is a mixture...not just engine oil. I can work my way around a gas engine but this has me stumped. Please explain this to a diesel dummy. Thanks, poop

I can venture a guess..... it sounds to me like your EGR cooler is toast and prob. head gaskets too.... Can't be sure without more info though.

Does it go dry while it's sitting or is it after you've been driving? Ever notice any white smoke out the exhaust?

As far as the oil leak.........I couldn't even begin to guess what it might be without seeing it.....

I will say this........ I would strongly recommend that you don't drive the truck until you figure out what is going on for sure. Obviously, something isn't right, and if you keep driving it the way it is, you run the risk of costing yourself $$$$$ instead of $$$. Catch my drift?

If you've got any more info, post it up so we can help.
