I see a 2008 F-550 as your truck? Or do you have a 7.3?

Diesel in the coolant is a cracked injector cup or lifted injector cup.

NO sorry, the 550 was a truck the I drove in Afghanistan (armored) which is how I found this forum. I own and drive a 2002 350 with a 7.3. Do I have to pull the heads off to fix this? I heard a horror story about the cab having to be pulled off a ford truck to get the heads off? Im hoping this isnt my truck...

No need to pull the cab on our trucks...

And no you do not need to pull the heads off to fix an injector cup. You need to remove the valve covers, pull the injectors and the cups are what the injectors sit in. I do believe you need a certain tool to get the injector cups out but CSIPSD would know way more about that than I do.

the tool looks like a big tap you screw into the cup where the injector sits and you pry them out

the install tool looks like a injector, red loctite if i recall to hold them in

need to drain the coolant and fuel system before removing the cups
