Re: Coolant Overflow 05 6.0
Thanks for those0 who have responded. My guess - "Rock Doctor" has some experience with this - a tech with a lot of experience an engineer?
While initially frustrated, I have learned the following.
A. The Puking definition has come in to be the best "web search" criteria to give me knowledge - which is what I was seeking in the first place - as that is true POWER; and
B. Here's what I have learned in this endeavor:
1. The overflow resevoir contains a minimal capacity - some complain - BUT may be designed "idiot indicator" - SEE BELOW!
2. Modified and not properly monitored modifications can result in - PUKING - maybe a result of self-induced problems - as with Gas - you overheat the powerplant - you score pistons - warp heads - and do untoward damage to parts from your "lack of knowledge" - I have been there - and it sucks.
3. Nonmodified engines that are abused PUKE - l;ike excessive ideling in hot temperatures - a gas modor would have cooked the oil - thanfully you have 3X the capacity - agin another "redeeming quality" of a diesel
4.Some PSD's have out of tolerance (intake - head)parts - whether self-induced or manufactured - that causes heads to not properly seal - Result : it "PUKES" as a result of a gasket leak
<font color="red"> </font> The fortunate thing about the little coolant resevoir - of any of 2-4 apply any idiot under the hood will see it and say - "somthing's up I better get this checked out!"
MORAL: Before you detrmine how to react and respond to postings thing about the following
If you are in this site - you
(a) love your FORD diesel,
(b) are interested in one - but want to learn more,
(c) are frustrated about it, or
(d) looking to entertain yourself at the expense of someone else - by messing with those in the (b) or (c) category - and receiving a response from someone in the (a) category.
Thanks to those of you who post constructive messages.
Keep it up and ignore the (d) categories here. If you want to play their game - go to their comparable site and flame them there! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
