Head gaskets, Puking????

My truck is a 06, it has 26,500 miles and yesterday I washed my truck including engine, today for the first time ever I noticed some dried up coolant coming from the cap on the overflow reservoir , I've read all the problems with head gaskets, egr cooler, etc., I took my SCT out, it's been on tow mode for about a month now, I still have my cat on but it's straight piped after that. Any thoughts on what I should do? Thanks fellas.

This is usually covered under warranty right?

I know I've read several guys stories of them getting the gaskets replaced under warranty and while their in there putting the studs in as well. I hope I'm right on this

After a few days of driving the SCT shouldn't be detected anymore and you can take it in and see what they (dealership) say. Puking doesn't necessarily mean that the headstuds are shot. You might have EGR issues. I'd let them know that you tow a pretty big RV and that's when you noticed the problem.

trust me if it's not covered under warranty, I WILL not pay to have this thing fixed, hopefully I can trade it in on a Dodge before it starts puking to bad, I've had way to many problems with this 6.0
