guess its time

well im starting to have those dreaded 6.ohno problems. Right now I have an oil cooler that needs to go in and just ordered an EGR delete (ebay no name) and a coolant filter setup from PMM from TB on ebay. im gone for the next week so this isn't going to happen soon. but figured i'd get started with thread.

if those don't solve my issues then im down to HG and will do studs and some other work. truck is driveable but getting the white smoke and loosing coolant.

pic right after i bought it


other when i got home


and work setup


any ideas and help would be greatly appreciated.
especially on fun cool little mods.

You will want to flush the coolant system with Restore and Restore+ before swapping your oil cooler and driving for a day or two... That way any leftover crap from the flush can make it to the OLD oil cooler and clog that one up... Instead of your new one

yeah, there's quite a bit in there......still hoping for no HG issues bud! As long as you have all the right tools, an EGR delete and oil cooler can be done pretty quickly and you'll be done and back on the road

I'm pretty positive that the Head Gaskets have been compromised! I would just get it done at once while your there

I did it the "double" way like Nick is talking about... Ended up tearing into my truck within 6 months of doing my egr delete and oil cooler for a full head gasket job!

^i can handle 6 moths, that will get me some time to get another truck to use for work, then let the playing begin on this.... unless my wife gets her grants and stuff, then i can get all taht done.

are there any special tools i need to do the delete and oil cooler? i have access to a lot of hand tools impact, air compressor. will need a tq wrench for sure.

Started the tear down today. Got a lot done for the little I worked.



Pain the arse! I forgot about the bolt behind it on the pedestal. Its all out. Down to the IM. Trying to figure out what to pull next. Plus tired as hell but got help. I need to figure out if I should pull the fuel lines and the filter caps just to lift up pass side IM to delete the egr cooler...

and then another 6 months later to do the stc fitting right? I'm all for doing a one-and-done approach, but it always usually happens during some big time/money crunch time

Looking like good progress Lyndel!
