The tow truck is coming at 10:30-11 to haul the bus to the IC dealer.
SO GLAD the leak didn't pop up on I10 with Shaun and Nichole driving it!
The dealer shouldn't take terribly long to get the work done. Will probably be done in a day or so.
Costs $$$$$ to play the bus game!

yowsers! so its leaking bad enough you couldnt drive it in with the radiator cap loosened? is your IC dealer a rush truck like it is up here? if so ive had good luck with rush truck in general.

defimnitely glad it did fine for shaun ands company driving it home... probably good the fact it had the speed limiter on it that it did.. had I gotten to it first, I wouldve turned off the speed limiter and driven it at 65. which mightve caused the leak to happen quicker.. - perhaps the energies that kept me from making that trip over Thanksgiving were a positive force after all..

it definitely can take $$ to play the bus game.. I know this form my trans swap.. fun? yes, much better than before? YES, expensive? YESSIR

It lost a half gallon of coolant going to the end of the street and back.
If I tried to drive it the 20 miles to the dealer it would probably be very bad idea. Worst coolant leak I've ever had.
I'd love to NOT spend thousands of dollars, but sometimes you just gotta bite the bullet.

wow i didnt know it was going out that fast.. but i guess makes sense since its on the pressure side of the water pump.. before the thermostat too so its building up pressure against a wall when the engine is cold.. even cap loose probably wouldnt help that.

better to fix the coolant leak before you get hot and have to In-frame it.

Yeah, that's exactly my thinking. And yeah, that's why taking the cap off wouldn't help with this leak.

BTW-
I can't wait to get this BS blue Cummins coolant out of my IC!

After this, I still need tires. And I have an air compressor to fix.
And a rusty fuel tank. And it needs paint.

totally, the dealer should completely flush it clean and install the proper coolant and give you the maintenance procedure for it.. starting fresh so you know what you have,

yep. Start fresh with the right coolant.
I'm hoping since they'll likely access the diagnostic port for the mileage and hours for their records that they'll be nice and enable the CC and raise my top speed.

I need to get a price for them to install a new rear main seal. That requires a $375 tool.

plus you have to back off the tranny and remove the flexplate on that engine I think.. or can it be done by just pulling the oil pan?
