do you hear a whistle after you let off the throttle when you get in hard? kinda like a stove top tea pot sound ? these trucks have to get real hot for the guage to come up to tell you its hot

I believe the 04 had an incorrectly labled degas bottle causeing you to overfill the system, useually once it pukes out the excess it stays at that level that is left. Have you had to add anymore since the first time. Altho 2 gals. seems like a lot for that particular issue.

I have A 04 F350 doing the exact same thing. From what i have been reading about this problem alot of techs think it has something to do with the head gaskets. In my case if i run it 1/2 gallon below min mark it came back up to temp. and no puking. hope this helps
