if it was a blown head gasket would it

Okay i have done reaserch after research hrs and hrs on this site now. If i had a blown head gasket if i let my truck run on high idle for 2 or 3 hrs wouldnt it blow anti freeze out of the degas bottle and be over heating like crazy. Also my guages on the dash read normal its only the gauges on my sct programmer that say it running at 192 to 196. If this was the issue wouldnt it blow fluid every time it hits this because the thermostat is only good for 192 and why when i hit 192 and 194 why does it blow cold air out of my heater vents. It doesnt seem like a head gasket at all to me but i could be wrong

I just started having this exact same issue a few days ago. I would love to know what this is.

I'm not really sure what you are asking...

First of all the factory cluster gauges are simply analog lights. If it's in a certain range the needles are programmed to show it dead in the middle of the gauge. No, your truck doesn't run the exact same temps for it's entire life.

Usually head gaskets will puke coolant when under a load. Under just idle conditions you would have to have a really bad gasket breach.

Are you trying to say your truck is puking coolant or no? Does it steam at all at idle after a start? Are you sure your water pump is working correctly?
