Lets talk coolant problem fixes/preventions

So, my truck has 9600 miles. Not tuned yet, but I'm of course going to..

Has anyone figured out the coolant problems? There has got to be a Ford tech on these pages that has delt with these problems.

Also, how do I know if my truck needs the radiator replaced, and that T deal done. I'm not really up to speed on this problem.

Also, blocking egr with the plates will remove all exhuast from the EGR cooler. Are people working on a whole EGR cooler delete?

I do have elites egr delete done on my truck. I have had no problems with it puking. I did have to have the radiator replaced, but it was a faulty radiator. Apparently the crimping on some of them was sub-par. But, no puking issues to date with egr delete.

Ian. You bought the truck off of your Dad right? He should have a record of the repairs or the tsb/recalls. If not. Make an appointment and it shoud be replaced by Ford if your VIN falls in the recall range.

Lets just say not quite stock.

Is there a web page to check VIN's?

ForceFed... Anything to say about the block of plates. Doing the plates should be enough? Or is there actual risk of the coolant cracking the cooler and flow into it should be avoided?

Hard to say. I havent heard good or bad about them. Most people that have been going that route have been going with the full delete when they are getting thier other mods done. As for the plates. I know I will give it some serious consideration when mine is in next week for the puking. If they end up pulling the heads because the EGR is OK I might pass. But if the coolers are blown I'll try to sweet talk them into slipping them in. If the work wasnt getting done at the dealership and there was a good diesel shop in town I would go with the full delete.

I guess it all comes down to how much money you want to throw at it, and what your willing to sacrifice for the fix. I know that when oil comes up and the rigs are rolling. I will be pulling the cab and doing it right. I just cant afford it right now.

Lets just say not quite stock.
