Recently I was in a school circle picking up my sister and this grinding noise started. (Video will be attached of the very second it happened)
So, I drove it home and no noise but when I popped the hood, I noticed little hoses were damp. Figured it was my coolant cap because I leave it ever so slightly unscrewed for pressure to release so I have a less chance of blowing a head gasket. May think it's stupid but it works for my 6.0. No oil in coolant and no blown heads just small drips of overflow.
So, I cleaned off the hoses and brake lines on the master cylinder and drove the next day. The noise went from grinding/creaking to an occasional squeak here and there while driving so I stopped and looked under hood again to find every hose wet that has to do with brake lines and coolant lines.
Cleaned them off and same thing next time I drove everything soaked. The fluid is a light yellow. Coolant and brake fluid, right? Well feels too oily to be coolant, and has no smell whatsoever like its water.
I was told it was my brake booster.
And then I took it to another shop.
They said they think it's my coolant Y pipe connecting to my coolant reservoir. I will say coolant level dropping but doesn't drop below a certain point, but it's always done that, and truck doesn't get hot or overheat ever!
The next shop was telling me it was one of my pumps screaming for help and it probably put to much stress on a hose and cracked one somewhere which is causing a pressurized leak hence fluid everywhere and squeaking every 30ft of road while driving. I'm probably missing a lot but I'm making this post while I am working as this morning it was puking fluid everywhere. I have checked all reservoir none are low except coolant but again it's always leaked and stayed at a certain level.
have the same problem?
