Ever have the coolant recharged or changed? Might have pitted the cylinder walls.

BLACK COOLANT. IT STINKS!!!!

hey guys I have a 04 6.0 and I just bought it. Has 84000 well maintained (dealership) miles. I just came back from a 1000 mile trip pulling a 5k lb trailer. I noticed on the trip a FOUL odor. I thought I had a belt slipping, or an electrical problem. When I got home I started looking into it. I found the coolant was BLACK. Smelled like A** too. Sulfury smell maybe(?) Im thinking head gasket. Well theres no coolant in the oil.
I took it into ford dealer, there for 4 days, they cant find anything wrong with it. I flushed and flushed the coolant/radiator etc. And i cant get rid of the smell. How can you check for porosity in cylinder walls without tearing the engine down? is there something they overlooked? they checked the oil cooler too. no issues. HELP!!!! :icon_ford:
