Possibley both , if you have the contributing factors that Wolf spoke of above, you can have a leaking cooler tube, leaking cap or all of the above.LokiWolf said:Maxxis, That is exactly what I said...
High CP's can cause the other things, which cause puking, like stretching of the headbolts.
A High power tune generally puts more fuel, and air into the engine, which creates a larger/longer explosion which equals more power. It also means higher Cylinder temps. Therefore the coolant is at a higher temp, which increases your chances of a hotspot being hot enough to boil. Therefore puking.
The tunes are just one of the contributing factors.
Well when i take my cap off it bubbles.... and i was wondering where my coolant was going.. Does this mean that is my headgaskets??Extended Power said:If your coolant is too full, your truck will puke it out until it finds it's happy place...
When your truck is really warm, slowly loosen, and remove your coolant cap. If you see bubbles...not good, prolly need gaskets etc.
Extended Power said:I agree with you as well.
It could be quite a few things.
But I think if you pull the tune out of it, and it still bubbles...I think ya narrowed it down to a couple of thngs that it could be.
But yes, several people have installed studs, new gaskets, even o-ringed the heads, and have still puked after. (My god...would I ever have a coniption if I did all those mods, just to have it spew again...I think the truck would burn to the ground right then and there...)h issed: :bang
I dont get any white smoke.... and the truck runs fine but its just that i have some coolant missing... and yes i have still had little drops from the overflow cap and i had plenty of pretty big pukes before so i dont kno what do u guys think??LokiWolf said:F&F, You probably have a head issue. If it isn't coming from around the bottle, and you are still losing it, I would guess the heads, but hopefully somebody like John G, Diesel71, or Doc will come along and confirm. Do you get any white smoke? :shrug:
