Hello, I am taking a few pics on my phone but am also labeling every electrical connector that I unplug as I go along. I also put a piece of cardboard in the bed and am laying all the pieces out on the cardboard and writing anything I need to remember on the cardboard.
You just need a basic socket set, so far I have only used 3/8 and 1/4 drive with metric sockets and different lengths of extensions. Besides the regular tools I have not needed anything specif except the disconnect tool for the fuel line. So far its not to bad just a lot of stuff in the way to get to the top end. Good luck if you go for the head gasket.
Hi. I have the same exact problem you described and I believe the issue is a leaking head gasket. When can I bring the truck over to so you can help me fix mine? LMAO!
I totally dont have the $2000 in labor to do it. It gives me courage to want to try and fix this myself like you are. Are you taking pics or anything along the way? Was also wondering what kind of tools and/or parts that you are using to complete this job?
I feel like I could complete this (ive taken the entire dash apart to replace the heater core) before determining that the backpressure from the HG is probably what destroyed the cooling system.
I just bought the truck a month ago, so I am new here. Good luck on the rest of the job, I hope it is what solves the trucks problems!
