Almost blew the truck up today. I was going 65 on a major highway, and all of a sudden I just see a puff of white smoke behind the truck. White smoke = coolant burning so I said oh shit. Almost instantly the temp gauge started to rise, so I found a place to pull off to safety and shut it off.

After I shut it off, white smoke just started pouring out from around the hood. I get out, and I can see a huge puddle of coolant under the truck. I let the engine cool down a little, and then I popped the hood to figure out where the coolant was coming from. Took me a few minutes, but I finally realized that one of my heater hoses on the PCV valve came off. I recently replaced the hoses, and I guess the new hose has a smaller outer diameter than the factory hose did, so the original clamp that was in good shape wasn't enough to keep it secure.

Luckily I'm paranoid about stuff like this, so I had an extra jug of Motorcraft Gold in the truck. Turns out that was just enough. Once the engine cooled, I refilled the radiator, and started the truck up. Temp stayed in the normal range, on both the gauge and my scan tool. Drove the truck around for 40 miles, and it did just fine. I'm counting my blessings I didn't overheat it. I'm not sure that I'm willing to do head gaskets on this truck.

About a week after I got in the truck (and I didn't know jack shit about vehicles) I noticed the temperature gage was way past the age. I told myself I would look at it when I got home. About five minutes later I had a blowout while pulling into my driveway. Replaced the radiator, engine didn't skip a beat.
