Did you tighten it until the cap clicks?

Sounds like it's time for a new degas bottle.

I'd have to disagree with getting an OEM cap. A lot of research says they are known to go bad.

I'd just go to autozone and get a $6 Stant cap!

I would agree the Stant caps aren't much better that the old Ford ones. I replaced my old Ford Cap (nothing wrong with it) with a Stant and occasionally I got drips. I put the old one back on an nothing ever drips out. So, when the original finally drips, an new Motorcraft will go back on.

However, with it reading like it is stripped, it might be time for a new degas bottle.
