puked coolant but passed pressure test????
So a while back discovered my truck puked a very small amt of coolant like less then a couple table spoons it looked like. my temps are average 184 ECT and 190-191 EOT. so i did some research and got help from you guys and did a couple pressure test with a new updated cap....
I hooked the line onto the top line of the degas bottle and never got above 11-12 psi it looked like. It stayed around 6-7 til I hit throttle hard. when I ran WOT for few mins back and fourth. so I parked and bled pressure off and it didn't seem to build anymore for the 5-10 min ride home.
2 weeks later went from Fairfield ca to Licoln CA about 1 hr and 10 min and ran it pretty hard and then the next day my friend wanted to see my coolant filter and i puked quite a bit... and my coolant lvl seemed to rise half inch from when I last marked it. maybe around 70 degrees whole day.
