96 Ford F350 dually 7.3 turbo
I just bought a truck with a major engine problem:
96 for f350 dually crew cab, 218k, auto, power all, stock.
The coolant drains directly into the oil. I changed the oil and almost 2 five gallon pals of grey liquid came out. I then noticed the coolant over flow/fill up was almost empty and I put 4 gallons of water in it to see if it would drain into the engine and it did. I don't know much about these engines as I just got my 1st one about 6 months ago (I also have a real nice 97 4x4 crew cab long bed). Let me know what you guys think the issue is, I would guess head gasket. let me know my next steps, or if I should just part out the truck.......
