165k on the odometer.
I am thankful in a way. This experience has forced me to learn this engine and the maintenance and what to watch for. I won’t be on another trip without my tablet and torque pro. Egt and fuel pressure gauges are in my near future

Yea, and once you get these things right and down, they are solid trucks.

Coolant filter installed and yes it is a ebay $40 special. The mount was spot on the filter head is good quality and fit. The filter is crap but that’s going to be replaced with a CAT filter. The valves were crap but I omitted them the hoses are decent quality with quality brass and aluminum fittings. All and all the parts seemed good quality (except the valves) all had minor blemishes but I don’t care about that

Parts starting to come in for the oil bypass filter.

Ok have about 600 miles on the coolant bypass filter and it has really cleaned up and polished the coolant................and the 1 inch of crystal clear diesel fuel sitting on top...!!!! Doh

Now I guess it’s time to pull the injectors and see if the cups are cracked or the heads. I needed to install my updated dummy plugs and standpipes anyways.

DT Ron talks about in one of his videos about the unique smell of diesel mixed with coolant. Going back to the start of all my issues when we bought the truck this seems to be the root cause of all my issues. My question is should not the original dealership I took this truck to have spotted this? Granted this is the same dealership that left 4 intake bolts finger tight.

I am glad I used a cheap oil cooler I will fix the cups then flush flush flush again. And replace the entire cooling system with all oem. (Oil cooler, all hoses, thermostat,heater core. And a radiator and water pump from BPD)

Looks like I will be at 2k in parts which is 2k less than my local dealership wanted for just the oil cooler.

If you have diesel in your coolant it isn't the cups.

As @bismic said not likely the cups(sometimes tho) one can hope cause those are way easier to replace.

The head can crack just above the fuel bore passage and leak fuel into the coolant, you can pressurize the fuel rail to test before taking the injectors out. (google for a picture of this)

Shop air applied to the fuel rail, and coolant bottle filled all the way up should show bubbles in the coolant tank. There is an injector bottom half replacement to get around this failure.

In my defense, I was unsupervised

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

Yeah, for it to be a cup, it would also have to be an injector o-ring in the same cylinder (at the same time as the cup failure). It may happen, but the odds are VERY, VERY low. I haven't seen it. Don't recall seeing it on any of the half dozen forums I watch closely either. This isn't your old 7.3L engine (and he almost certainly has a cracked head).

https://www.accuratediesel.com/shop/279.html

TSB 08-23-8 discusses the issue (Ford advises to drain the coolant and then to pressurize the coolant tank w/ 10 psi air, then watch for bubbles or coolant in each injector bore).

It is easy to pressurize the fuel galley in the head with shop air (do them separately to identify which head is leaking). There is a fuel line to each head. Watch for bubbles in the degas tank.

It is usually one of the middle two cylinders. The casting is thinner in the area around the fuel galley on the middle two cylinders. Some say it is from getting hot, also heard it said that it could be from over-torquing an injector hold down.

Here is another repair method (different than the Accurate Diesel method):

Oh - and diesel will degrade all the rubber in the coolant system, including the oil cooler (end even possibly the water pump). The hoses should all be changed out and also the oil cooler (which you were planning on doing anyway).

DTR says the passenger head is the most common.


Here is a video of removing a 6.0L cup, just as an fyi:
