What causes fuel to seep into coolant?
My coolant smelled like diesel for few months now. Finally it justI kept sputtering through the overflow tube at the overflow tank. What irks me is that I replaced a hose that goes to the overflow tank and was busted, they told me there was smell of fuel, but couldn't tell me why. Then another hose busted, replaced it. Went into shop for shredded alternator belt and had to replace mount for it, ouch, it alone costs $350, plus labor. At that time told the guys to replace right top radiator hose, which they did, and they did not smell or alarm me to fuel in the coolant. One thousand miles under load later, I stop where I am at and pull one and half gallons of fuel and muck, off the top in the coolant overflow
Here they tell me that there is a leak in an injection tubing and that I need the head replaced. This costs $4500 so far at United Engine in Oklahoma City, OK. I have been waiting three days, weekend and maybe they'll have it done by the end of the day on Monday.
Is this a good question?
