I have installed these gages - engine temp, EGT, Trans, Boost. What are the early signs of a blow head gasket? What to look out for? Should I or should I not put a STC chip on my F250 04-6.0
FYI, you have positive pressure in the radiator system that normally stays below 16psi (degas cap rating). Once it goes higher than that, you have to look to exhaust or compression escaping into the coolant system. If it's exhaust, you have a bad EGR cooler. If it's compression, you have bad HG's. EGR coolers are very common to go out on the 6.0L's; even more common than bad HG's.I've never had a problem w/my coolant being to high. I monitor all of my fluids very closely. It is not normal for coolant to be gushing out of my resevor.
Glad they got it figured out. It shouldn't be but a week long job, unless they have to ship in the heads... I'm hoping you were able to have the diesel tech install some head studs... Good luck!Head gaskets are blown. Ford is replacing the heads and gaskets. Mabey I'll get it back sometime this centry.
