Head Gaskets

My truck has been studded and it has a blocker plate on the egr and this mornin on the way to work it puked out all of the coolant. I put coolant back in and put my truck back to stock and it did it on the way home just not as bad. When my truck got the studs installed he replaced the heads with new ones. Do you think i blew my head gaskets again it is coming out of the degas bottle? WTF!!

Re: Head Gaskets

Define "blocker plate" for us. Do you just have a plate in the up pipe to block exhaust to the cooler? Something probably happend to the EGR cooler if it is still there.

Pull the EGR valve to see if it is wet from coolant.

Re: Head Gaskets

Have you thought about deleting the EGR? Or do you live in a commie state that does emissions testing?

Re: Head Gaskets

Check your egr valve for wetness. You also need to check your oil cooler as well. When it gets plugged it will flash boil the coolant causing it to puke.

Re: Head Gaskets

I just orderd an intake manifold from GoGo diesel. This might be a stupid question but how can the egr still fail if i have a plate blocking it?

Re: Head Gaskets

like 97 singlecab said pull your egr valve and check for wetness probably wouldnt hurt to clean it,then i would look at what temps your oil and coolant are running at

The blocker plate is not a complete seal, it will still push air past it under a hard boost, Like they said check the egr valve,jack the back of the truck up about a foot or two this compensates for the engine leaning to back and pop the egr valve. If you have access to a scanner check the engine oil temp verses the coolant temp. 20 degress I THINK and more of a difference than you have a bad cooler

Re: Head Gaskets

wouldn't you still get white smoke or steam out the exhaust, or would having tunes or unpluging the egr valve prevent that?
