Head gaskets?

My trucks eating coolant... egr blocked studs, no coolant in oil, oil and coolant temps are normal. Getting an odd vibration when the converter is locked. Could this be related? Are my gaskets gone??!

Re: Head gaskets?

my 04' was doing the same thing..... does it do it after the vehicle warms up or just when its cold.... and what are u running for oil... mine came down to a surging vibration due to running 15-40 oil in cold temperature... i switched to the powerstroke oil and it runs like a top

Re: Head gaskets?

Switch your oil to Valvoline Premium Blue 5w-40 Synthetic, for some reason 6.0's love this oil, switched mine to the 5w from the 15w valvoline and my truck runs better in the cold weather.

Re: Head gaskets?

your head gaskets are gone end of story. the vibration with the converter locked is more than likely a injector miss

Re: Head gaskets?

Wheres the coolant going? puking out degas cap, external leaks?

Does the vibration stay the hole time the TC is locked? or just when it first locks?

Re: Head gaskets?

Ya I am wondering if I have bigger issues brentos. I am not sure... replaced the degas cap, but it wont drip in the driveway. Cant see any comin out the exhaust either. Yes the vibration stays the entire time
