Degas leaking

Hey guys.

I need some insight from the "experts"!
I have an 05 which I just purchased. It had a blown oil cooler, so I took it to my guy and had it fixed.
In the process, I added an EGR delete, new cooler, Coolant filter, and head studs. Figured while it was apart, it'd be best to make it right.
The system was flushed 4 times and the new coolant looks awesome, with no more signs of the infamous grey goop.

My issue is, twice (after repair) the degas bottle has blown over. At first I thought it may have been slightly over full, and just overflowed, but on my way to work today, it happened again. I just purchased a new Napa 16psi cap to eliminate that...No tuner, didn't overheat...

Any suggestion, other that a bad HG? The degas was holding a steady 5-6 psi on the test drive last week. Just wanted to ask, as my mechanic is 1.5 hours south of my home.

Are you monitoring you coolant and oil temperatures??

It may be as simple as the cap, very common and make sure coolant is at the proper level.
You have to have a monitoring devise of some sort !!!!!!

Just bought a new cap today, and I am saving cash for a monitor. I dumped all my reserve into the last repair...Gonna check tomorrow if my buddy's snap-on scan tool can monitor the EOT & ECT's.

I would throw it on and go for a nice reassuring drive tomorrow it will take a load off your mind.
Yea you really need a monitor in the truck, I use the cheap little ScanguageII and like it well enough. I have it to the far left of dash below the vent out of veiw exept for me. lol

It was the best $160.00 I spent on the truck and it reads everything the pcm sees. Everything!! A device can save you from having a disaster can't recommend one enough.

Nice lookin truck by the way
