    Ok, mystery solved. No offence to you, but this why I always recommend a proper scan tool. The dash is unreliable. The real clue here is the "SA 33". That stands for "Source address" 33, or the module that is reporting the fault. 33 is the body controller. This is not an engine code. This code is for the mode door actuator for the heater/ac being jammed. If you have a check engine light on, get it scanned with the proper tool and I can help you further.
    Engine codes are from SA 00.

    Hmm, I am sorry to say but the shop I currently work in is closing due to economic downturn. We really haven't seen much of them in a few years because many of our customers have refused to ever buy them again and have moved on. I think for the most part, they have improved the egr system plus it isn't used as heavily as the Maxxforce series so they are a better working engine. New issues with NOx sensors and SCR catalyst failing though.

    I have a 2013 maxforce and it suddenly started to drink 2 gallons of coolant ever 2 to 4 days .
    No smoke nothing in the oil had the system pressure tested, mechanic found a leaking hose replace the hose clamp and said the problem was fixed but we're still using two gallons of fluid every four days or so .

    Is there any way to definitively tell if the EGR coolers are bad I would imagine if it was using two gallons of coolant should be white smoke billowing out of the tailpipe and the engine will be trying to hide a lock Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    We remove the intake pipe and look through the intake throttle valve. You can see where the two smaller egr mixer pipes connect. Look and side and see if those pipes are wet to confirm.
