Blowing coolant out degas tank ?

Is it possible to have a bad egr cooler and not blow head gaskets ?
I lost about a gallon of coolant after running pretty hard for about 100mi. noticed it loosing some lately but not this much ..truck runs great and no smoke or steam out exhaust ?
if it is a cooler can I just leave the degas cap loose as to not pressurise the system and just allow it to vent till I can do the egr delete ?

Read the link in my sig. Your oil cooler is already FUBAR. Fix it now, change the coolant to ELC, and GET A MONITORING SOLUTION!

If you are puking the oil cooler is already FUBAR. The link in my sig explains this whole sequence of this chain of failures. That is exactly what is goin on with your truck That is why it is CRUCIAL to monitor your ECT and EOT. That is the only way to see it coming. Don't let it go till you are spending lots more money because you didn't fix it while you still had a chance.

This happened to me I had bad oil cooler it will puke when I would get on it. just do head studs to. make sure you replace your cap after it blows coolant out. It seems every time it happens to me my cap ends up being bad.

well i have a oil cooler kit if you want i can give you a deal on it.. while you are in there do a egr delete. i dont know how good you are with a wrench but you should be able to do it in a day. You need a edge so you can look at your temps.. hopefully your gaskets are good.
