    I had some blinker fluid visible in my Super Duty turn signals. An eighth inch drill bit made for a quick drain.

    It's the environmentalists. First it's oil-based paint, now it's oil based blinker fluid. Better start stocking piling your cooking oil.

    What?!? Lard from a living being? Oh, they will crucify you for that. At least you're not burning any vegetation in small amounts or anything.

    What year Tore-Ass? The 3.0 and even more so the 3.8L are head gasket eaters.

    Didn't know it was a bad thing. Enlighten me.
    Unfortunately I have started several small fires but they all burnt out fine.

    No water based up there because of the possibility of freezing!

    Well, the mech said it had blown a gasket over the timing chain. He didn't seem interested in working on it.
    I got another guy who will take a look. He does more involved work.
    We decided that if we can fix it for under $1,500 we'll keep it.

    I was hoping something simple, but nooo.
    Good luck.

    Try stainless steel exhaust bearings and oil based blinker fluid. Not the cheap dino based stuff that Huztl sells, but genuine sperm whale oil. I put this combo in my Tucson and it really improved my fuel mileage.

    I think the Gary Goo products work best.
