6.0 oil cooler failure
Well one of the 6 liters lost an oil cooler. It filled the coolant with oil and it mixed into a brown thick mess. The dealer has been flushing it for 8 hours and still can't get it cleaned up. They have some Ford approved flush just for this. It has so much crap in it the heater core gets plugged up. They flush out the heater core and then drive the truck, a big chunk finds it's way to the heater core and it's plugged again.
Wonder what the EGR cooler and new oil cooler are doing???
I took a look at it apart, the stuff sit in the heater hose for a week hanging vertical and wouldn't drip out. If the block is full of it they'll never get it out.
I've seen a lot of other diesels get oil in the water but never like this. Just one more problem on this 6 liter to go with EGR valves and injectors.
