1999 ford 350 power stroke diesel has diesel in the coolant tank? It overheated in the past. Had the fuel pump and temperature sensor replaced. What cause this? And would doing a compression test be a good thing? Ford told them it could be a cracked head or bad sleeves (i dont think that is the right word, but it would require taking the heads off. I dont know how long it overheated, but they were pulling horses. She said it was pouring out and onto the front tire. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Ford is right. The longer you wait, the more damage you do to the motor.
