Default 05 LLY spitting coolant out the overflow

So at 216k the LLY is spitting coolant. The upper hose is rock hard. The truck runs fine otherwise. Anyone recommend a place in CT. that does these?

Sometimes the cap can cause funky issues too. Although, with the LiLLY you may have blown headgaskets.

Try a new cap, just for kicks.

Thanks for the reply, it has been going on for about a month. I tried the cap. Then the thermostat. I'm pretty much figured it's the head gasket. It's going to sit and I'll be driving my 03 gas hd until I decide what to do with it.

Ahh 10-4. Looks like you’ve exhausted all other routes. You honestly would be money ahead to fix it. Especially if it’s clean; 07 and older trucks, hell even LMM trucks are fetching quite the pretty pennies nowadays. Especially if they’re clean.

I got a price of 11k to fix it! One other 6500.00 so it's quite a swing in prices.

11k is extremely high. 6500 is closer but still a little steep.

Both are way too high to me. If you have some mechanical know how and since you have another truck you could do them yourself. I did my lb7 and itís not a terrible job.

Just for reference, we are wrapping up a head gasket job on an LLY right now, and the total comes out to a little under $5500. That's a complete upper gasket set, Mahle grade C head gaskets, ARP studs, water pump, coolant, oil, filter, machine shop charges on having heads checked and gone through, sales tax, and labor.

Just got a call from another diesel shop $6900.00 to do the heads. I've called 3 places and got 3 prices now. I probably could do it myself . I've done tons of work in the past on all kinds of engines even rebuilt 6.2 and 6.5 for old vans I had. .
