    So I just finished putting new head gaskets in my 2005 lly. 183k miles and bone stock up until I bought it. When I bought the truck it had typical HG symptoms... black tank, bubbling coolant at cold start with cap off, blowing coolant out when driving etc. So I decided to buy the truck for low...
  2. 01-04.5 LB7 Duramax Powertrain
    Hey all! I have a stock 2001 lb7 3500 dually. It blew a head gasket(!) about 11 months ago or so. I took it apart while leaving the cab on and the turbo on. Unfortunately a few days before I was going to assemble everything while waiting for parts in the mail, I found out I had Lymphoma and it...
  3. 01-04.5 LB7 Duramax Powertrain
    Yes another post but after hours and hours of researching i'm still not entirely sure. My only sign so far is a somewhat stiff upper radiator hose and some pressure in coolant reservoir after a day or so of sitting. Is that normal? Replacing the radiator cap seemed to actually alleviate a lot of...

    Hi all; sure hope I'm posting this in the right forum. Please LMK if I should move it elsewhere. First, about the truck: It's a 2015 3500 LT w/ ~295k miles. It has an EFI tow tune and EGR delete (done by previous owner) and a lift pump (done by me), otherwise its stock. Spent its previous...

  6. General Discussion
    Hello, i’ve got an lbz duramax leaking about a gallon of coolant into the crank case in 5 minutes. I’ve been doing a bunch of research and have seen it can be the water pump and head gasket. i’d like to think it’s the water pump but it was just replaced 3,000 miles ago. I had a shop diagnose it...

    i have a 06 lly for about a year now and been loving it, i noticed a slight bit of oil around the head gasket on the passenger side rear. checked all the symptoms for a blown head gasket and everything checks out okay and it looks to be traveling down from somewhere higher up. ive read some...

    So a while back I parked my 2003 2500hd CCLB after having a generous amount of oil come out of my crank case breather tube. I stopped driving it right there and then. Did an oil change and rather than the usual 2.5gal out came 5gallons of really, really thin oil. My first thought was fuel in the...

  12. 04.5-05 LLY Duramax Powertrain
    I know this question has been posted in varius forms and forums, but i have added to many variables into the equation to immediately jump to a head gasket leak. The truck is a 4.5 2500hd gmc, mods that might have influence on the issue are, sinister egr delete, and banks intercoolers. The truck...

  14. 911 Problems Forum
    I got tonnes of pressure in the res tank and coolant is cool. Leak is coming from the front of motor on pass side infront of belt. Small leak and no smoke out pipe or water in oil or vise versa. Thinking about putting in a product called Irontight then running for awhile then changing the cap...
