Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist
have you pressure tested the system
does it smoke out the exhaust
is there anything on the floor inside the truck
does the coolant boil in the surge tank
ok, thanks, ***** ***** replace the thermostat??
you need to put it back. it will overheat if you do not have it in.
you can insert a dye in the system that will turn green. if you have any kind of an external leak, no matter how small, will show with this color.
it is possible.
the smell sounds like you either have a leak under the truck, which is why I suggest the dye, or inside the truck indicating a heater core
please dont forget to rate me as it is the only way I get paid for my efforts
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.
The tech which was helping has opted out. Would you like my assistance?
I would like to do some more diag. So far the heater core looks like a a for sure possible cause for the odor but not the overheat.
Hello again Chris here,
