degas drip!!

today i noticed a couple drops around my degas cap... it wasnt a puke it was only a couple drops... should i be concerned? it doesnt have any other symptoms... and also, if i drive it and let it sit for about 1/2hr, should there be pressure when i open the cap... not alot, wount blow the cap off or nothing....but pressure does release....

Mine is doing the exact same thing,you need to pressure test at degas bottle....there are alot of threads on hear clearly defining how to do that.Mine only leaks a bit if i hit on the gas hard,if i drive it lightly on hiway theres no leaking....i did a pressure test last sunday,at wide open throttle i reached 19 PSi,in other words,head gaskets are screwed!!!Sounds like your at the same stage i am bud!!
