Re: need help from expert on 6.0 liter

Why are the freeze plugs out, did it freeze and push them out? If so then you my have a cracked block or head.

Re: need help from expert on 6.0 liter

If it sat with no coolant to speak of... then filled with water... then sat again .... that things gonna be full of rust. Take that sucker to the machine shop and get it checked out. Block probably needs to be hot tanked... you'll plug oil cooler after oil cooler if it's not clean. As far as oil out of the plugs.... blown oil cooler will mix fluids.
What does your degas bottle look like? There's a lot of variables that need to be put out there.

Re: need help from expert on 6.0 liter

I'm assuming that it did freeze and push the plugs out.I'm pretty sure that I have head gasket failure since I had already replaced EGR cooler and oil cooler probably five hundred miles before this happened after replacing those items I still had coolant loss and overheating no signs of oil and water mixing though it was puking of the gas bottle still that's how I came to the conclusion it's probably head gaskets my biggest concern is does anyone know if it is possible for oil to come out of those freeze out plug holes anyway besides the block being cracked thanks for all the help everyone.

Re: need help from expert on 6.0 liter

wow this sounds bad

oil out the ejected freeze plugs ? maybe your oil cooler split when it froze

but this sounds like it could become a whole motor transplant

Re: need help from expert on 6.0 liter

it just seemed to me like an awful lot of oil coming out to be just like cracked block and on both sides

Re: need help from expert on 6.0 liter

i mentioned split oil cooler

this thing is full of coolant( water in your case ) and oil a rupture would dump oil into the cooling system quickly

just a guess that is what happened

Re: need help from expert on 6.0 liter

Zmann... that's kinda what I was thinking too. Never heard of oil with a cracked block... least not that I can recall. Usually hydrolock with coolant.... lots of blow by... low compression with incomplete fuel burn....
Raw oil.... just makes me think oil cooler all day long.

Re: need help from expert on 6.0 liter

ok guys it looks to me like the only explanation would be the oil cooler I cut it open to visually inspect it but I could not tell if it was cracked I removed the water pump the impeller was cracked but it does appear that it was pumping oil through the cooling system so as long as the block is not correct which I'm pretty sure it is and we're in good shape all in all thanks for all of your help.
