Still puking with studs??

I've had my head studs in for a touch over 20k now and have noticed that either while pulling or running a higher setting that I'll get some puking out of the degas bottle. If I'm driving sane, I don't see any coolant loss, just under 'extreme conditions'

Is this common?

EGR cooler is leaking.

Does it harm anything or just create an annoyance?

It will not hurt anything, but it will eventually get worse and replacing or welding up the EGR will be the only fix.

Mine did it the next day but it was my Degas bottle. They replaced the bottle and cap after cooler and HG's and ARP's. It's fine now on high tune and driving it hard.

Re: Still puking with studs??

I've had everything replaced (heads, gaskets, egr cooler, egr, oil cooler, degas bottle and cap) initially. Then ~7k later the egr was replaced again.

I'm at the point where I'd like to bypass everything.

I pulled the tune off and have been running stock the past few days (I've resorted to huffing while driving to make it more exciting) If the egr cooler is leaking does it throw any DTC's? Not losing any coolant right now.

Do the studs need to be retorqued?

Re: Still puking with studs??

Who did your studs? They make an egr delete up-pipe. What Tuner are u running? You can get the up-pipe in 2 styles one that looks as if everything was still hooked up like factory and another that is smooth (no connection to the Cooler). With either of these you have to have a custom tune to turn off the EGR valve. EliteDieselEng.com has both. This will take care of your puking problem if the head studs were done correctly.

Re: Still puking with studs??

My truck is at the dealer right now for gaskets/studs. They have done quite a few ARP stud installs but is there anything I should ask or "remind" them to do during the install?

Ask them to make sure they hook the flux capacitor back up! Be patient with them and let them do it right. Drop a 12 pack off to the tech!

The flux capacitor . . . The reason I was asking was Logan mentioned in his last post.

Just wondering if there were known problems with installation, torque sequence, etc.
