Customer Question

I HAVE A 2007 MACK WITH A AC-427 ENGINE I TOOK OUT THE OIL DRAIN PLUG TO CHANGE OIL AND I FOUND PIECES OF METAL STUCK TO THE MAGNET. I HAVE BEEN GETTING A FAULT CODE OF 8 AND 5. ILOOKED IT UP AND IT SAYS IT IS THE EUP. COULD THIS HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE PROBLEM? I HAVE ALSO BEEN HAVING AN ISSUE WITH THE COOLING SYSTEM. IT KEEPS PUSHING COOLANT OUT OF THE PUKE JUG.
