I'll see if i can answer all your questions
1- oil level looked fine with no additional level increase ????
2- Yes there is excess fluild leaking out of the rad overflow, And yes it smells like diesel
3- Lack of power has been evident for 6 to 8 months, before that Lots of power.
I have not heard back from the dealership or as quoted before Stealership but as soon as I get a report I will let you know.
While I'm asking
Has any one had trouble with steering box on there truck. Mine I believe is worn out. The steering wheel play is aprox 2 inches side to side. Its all over the road. The Dealership told me it's fine.
Here is what I,ve replaced. Ball Joints left 2x ( 2nd time wasn't the cure as I told them it wouldn't be) right side ball Joints, pitman arm, Linkage below the pitman arm 2x and long steering rod to passenger side. STILL WANDERS.
I have also had 6 universal Joints ( at rear end) rear drive shaft balanced all within 92000 KM ??? Unheard of right, Dealership says It's ok.
Thanks for the insight
