No smoke, degas cap leaking, heater blows cold
Just came back from a week at Yamaha school. I expected to the truck to puff a little after sitting for a while, and she did. Only yesterday in the morning when cold. Today was normal.
Warmed up for 10 min.
Heater blowing cold air, Edge reading 129* EOT.
Snapped the throttle twice, instant heat.
Highway drive for 40min, and then return after a 10 min appointment.
Stopped to fill up after getting off the highway.
Very small amount of white crap around the degas cap.
Wiped clean, checked oil, went to Ford dealer around the corner.
Bought new degas cap.
Never blows white smoke.
Now, I check my oil every fill up, and always look at my coolant. I filled up one week before I went away (2.5 weeks ago). And my cap was clean. Heater blew cold at me one other time few weeks back. Same remedy as today, snap the throttle, drive down the street, instant heat.
Heres my plan, change the degas cap. Recheck daily for a week.
If problem persists, buy new degas bottle.
This week it should be warmer than the last few, I planned to flush my coolant soon and the ELC (sig says it, havent done it yet, sitting in garage with flush and distilled water).
Change T-stat at same time of flush.
Not really looking for ideas here, just would like to get on the site. I am noticing a lot of poorly titled threads lately. Helps a lot when searching if the title describes the topic of the thread. I will update when I proceed.
See sig for mods.
