EGR Delete...now puking

Did my EGR delete yesterday which was a cluster if you ask me. Much more complicated than everyone makes it sound and I was way over my head.

Anyhow, first thing this morning on a quick 2 mile run I noticed some minor coolant on the bottle which was out of the ordinary. I then drove to work which is 35 miles of mixed driving interstate included and checked when I arrived. Only one drop on the bottle with no other evidence.

I had no puking/dribbling issues ever prior to yesterday when I installed the delete and refilled the coolant. I didn't need to install the delete, it was time for a coolant change so I decided to do it. My cooler was in great shape when I removed it and I had no issues prior.

I have guages and all my temps were normal etc. Is this something that can happen just from changing the coolant and then solve itself. Not sure how installing a delete can all of the sudden cause this.

Thoughts?

are you sure you just didn't overfill the degauss bottle a little too much. remember that ford changed the max fill line to quite a bit lower than was originally put on the bottle to allow for fluid expansion when it's hot.

sometimes if you over fill it it will puke a lil on you..ford says to fill the bottle like a inch from the bottom i think..if you fill it to the line that is on the bottle sometimes it will do this..also your cap could be going on you..try replacing the cap first.if it still does this than you may have some other issues going on.

were you on the min that's on the bottle or have you had the new min fill line put on from ford? it's a sticker that should look like this....notice the difference between the original fill line and the new min fill line
