Hi I'm Wayne, I will help you with this,

wayne :

most likely cause is Head gasket, but how did you eliminate the compressor


hooked up pressure gauge ,left truck run til pressure was up to used air to kick in compressor no change in reading

wayne :

It only takes a small amount, might not be able to tell, that way,

wayne :

bleed down air tanks, remove dis charge line, run truck and shut off after 5 min. if no air, its compressor, if is air, then Head Gasket

wayne :

discharge line from compressor
