Coolant is missing.
Its been a while guys.
I have a 94 1/2 factory 4wd F250. Good truck. Recently I went in to have the drivers door hinge pins replaced. New mechanic there said 'you have a coolant leak' in my stall. Yes the reservoir was low. I've never noticed one except for a blown hose once.
He being the new guy there, I took it to a different shop, where a trusted mechanic had moved to. He found leaking fuel return lines, and a weak/leaking turbo. He did a pressure check (24 hours), and agreed there is a coolant leak somewhere. No sign of it on the exterior of the engine. I've never had it reported thru the numerous 'oil report' tests I've had done. I've never noticed any 'baby poop' in the engine oil, but used diesel oil is rather dark.
He thinks its a head gasket going with perhaps a year to go to get it fixed.
Thoughts on this issue?
