Opinions on coolant smell in exhaust.

Iím kinda aggravated about this since itís my work truck . 1999 F450 7.3 obviously.
Anyway Iíve noticed in the morning only if itís been cool overnight (60s) , the truck almost acts like itís hydro locked .
It will turn over but very hard , once started it blows white smoke . Runs fine doesnít overheat . Today it started blowing white smoke after itís been shut down for say 10 minutes. So itís getting worse ....
Iíve not seen any fuel in the coolant or any fluids mix . I have however had a substantial amount of air in the cooling system. I believe I may have a cracked injector cup .
So I guess Iím wanting opinions , experience from others . Yes Iíve changed cups before no big deal in my opinion . Thoughts ?

Re: Opinions on coolant smell in exhaust.

If its cups it will be putting fuel in the coolant and it should be pushing compression into the cooling system

Re: Opinions on coolant smell in exhaust.

Run a pressure test on the cooling system, that should give you some good info.

It builds pressure, at least the hose gets hard , no pun intended.
Iím not going to fool with it right now . Iím taking a week off in October, so I guess Iím going to fix it then . For now Iíll run a no pressure radiator cap lol
I hate HATE hack mechanics . The man that used to work in this truck needs my fist upside his face .

Re: Opinions on coolant smell in exhaust.

Iím not sure Iím smart enough to navigate riff raffs site I canít find the brass cups on the site . Iíve used the cup tool before , works awesome. Now Iím wondering the price difference of the brass cups vs the stainless ones ...

Re: Opinions on coolant smell in exhaust.

For 40 bucks difference I would go for it. Didn't even know those existed till you said something. If or when I have to do them I will do the stainless ones

Iím thinking the same . Have to diagnose first. However Iím pretty certain itís a cracked cup or the sealing compound failed ..... Iíll reseal the injectors while Iím in there and test the glow plugs , change oil too itís about due .
Anything else you can think of ?

Re: Opinions on coolant smell in exhaust.

Sealing compound failure would make alot of sense with your symptoms . Maybe they used it to sparingly

Possibly. I believe itís on the drivers side . I crawled up under the truck this evening and noticed a white residue on the outside of the up pipe . Iím thinking the water is pushed past the exhaust valve and it runs down the up pipe , depending on where the valve timing events are . .
Havenít seen any water in the oil .
I had a 2002 dually (customers) did the same weird stuff . Except he would loose his heat due to air intrusion. Bleed the air off and the heat would return for 40 miles or so . I havenít run my heat yet so there ainít not telling if mine would do the same .
He had a very small crack in the cup , over heated the engine a few months before.
I installed new cups and put it all back together just in time for him to pull his fifth wheel to Utah . Trial by fire lol
