It started off as just a cold start issue that would go away after it warmed up. I took it to rocket city truck repair and it was down hill from their. they replaced the alternator, oil cooler, high pressure oil pump, and egr delete. After that they said it was good to go so i picked it up. It ran fine tell next morning when cold. I have been taking it back and forth for 3 months now with cold start issues and loosing coolant. They have been saying every thing is fine now they just told me the head gaskets are blown or the heads are cracked and its on me

ummm not good , sounds like they replaced everything that you were not having trouble with . for a cold start problem i would have added 8 oz of rev x and changed to rottella synthitic and seen what that would have done ...the egr is gone so your coolant is not going missing because of the egr cooler ...is there any leaks on the ground i would look for coolant leaks around where the egr delete is mabey the hooked something up wrong . did you have symptoms of hg going bad befor all this or was it just cold start isues ? do u have gauges ? what made them change the oil cooler and hpop ? what makes them think u have a hg problem opr cracked heads ...just the fact that coolant is missing? remember the coolant system could have had air in it from the work u had done mabey you are not loosing coolant .....how much coolant have u added?

I took it to them the first time for cold start and they said the alternater wasn't putting out enough voltage so they replaced that $500 and said it was good to go so I picked it up and still had the same issue and then a few days after that my check engine light came on for egr valve and exhaust gas so I pulled the egr valve to find water in my intake so I took it back explained that I was still having the same issues and on top of that the check engine light was on. That's when they did the oil cooler hpop and egr delete $3600. After all that and still the same issues I took it back repetitively for them to just say every thing was fine. They finally agreed at this point that something was rong so they took it in looked it over and told me that it could be injectors but that it would be on me that they did what they where supposed to do. So I picked it up and it was loosing coolant from degas bottle. I brought it back again and they said heads but again that's on me. So I picked up up again this last time and now its over heating belt is squeeling and my act programer is set on performance and they pretty much say I'm screwed.

Absolutely quit driving it until you can have it repaire before you need to replace the engine and not just head gaskets or heads. Stay away from the shop that you have been dealing with as it seems they have replaced a bunch of stuff that wasn't necessary like the HPOP and maybe the alternator. Sorry for your troubles but somebody will chime in with some info on a decent shop near you.
