There is a LOT of info in here. I have to agree, this is a great write up.

It's passion like this for our trucks that makes these forums worth every dime.

Nylyon, Thank you very much for taking the time.

If you are ever in Oregon, or Southwest Washington, Dinner is on me.

Re: 6.0 Powerstroke Coolant flush procedure

I have a 06 F250 6.0 that egr cooler replaced 15-20,000 miles ago and now what coolant in the degas jug is sooty colored and when I filled it up it pushed most of it back out. My heater has not been working when at idle. The engine temp stays normal in all driving conditions. I just did a complete coolant flush with not ANY restrictions. When I filled coolant system up completely and started it I noticed every few seconds air purges out the top of degas jug. What are chances of bad egr cooler or what. Thought about egr delete. Any help appreciated

if you are having air come bubble out of your degas bottle doesnt that mean busted head gasket?
