Re: Fuel in the coolant

not the o-rings usually but more than likely its a cracked injector cup or two.. mine did that when i bought it... got so bad i was getting a gallon of fuel in the coolant pretty regularly.. ended up haveing 2 or 3 cracked cups i cant remember the number for sure but that was the prob.. i guess its kinda common

Bad injector cup, like they said^^^. You can do it in the truck. I know Wide Open has done a few. It's not easy, but do-able.

it is pretty easy, ford sells a tap and press tool. i think only the cups on the rear cylinders are tough.

Re: Fuel in the coolant

yea i did mine in the truck...i just bought a tap that was the right size and machined a press tool.... and like bigr said only the back one on the drivers and back two on the pass were kinda hard to do but not too bad

if you think about it with too much fuel in the coolant, the coolant itself would loose its ability to properly cool your engine. you engine would more than likly run hotter and could damage more parts in the engine. i see it all the time in detroits and cat engines. imo i wouldnt run it at all.
